“A Word”

How many times have you wanted/needed a word from the Lord and opened your bible and received just that.  A word from the Lord that carried you through another day, another hour, another minute!  Those times are too many for me to even tell.  However, not too long ago I was having a very restless night (thank you Grandma for this “disease”).  I tossed and turned.  I had gotten up several times.  I wandered around the house for a while.  I went back to bed, only to toss and turn and get up again.   This time I went and tried to sleep in the guest bedroom so as not to disturb Nathan, who was sleeping so soundly. UGH!  I slept soundly for hours only to wake up, look at the clock and realize it had been about 25 minutes.  So, up again!  Downstairs again.  I had already prayed, so if you’re wondering if the Lord was trying to get me to pray, I had already prayed.  Believe you, me!   So, now I reached for the Bible to see if  He wanted to speak to me through the word.   I opened it up to begin looking for scripture that would possibly  be that “special” word, straight from God and read;  “And to you who are troubled, REST with us,” Well, I sure did like that part.  But then it went on to say, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels.” Okay! I immediately began praying, Lord Jesus come quickly! If You are trying to tell me that I’m not going to receive any rest until you come, the please come NOW!

I know many of you have had something like this happen. It is just comical to me.  I believe the Lord must have a sense of humor and probably had me open my Bible right to that verse for me to read that night.  I got really tickled and I just imagine HE was laughing at me too.

The Lord didn’t come back that night to give me rest,  so now I  just pray for a few hours of sleep each night when I go to bed. Lord help!  Do I dare ask  for “A WORD”?
