So I have a confession to make…I’m a night owl.
Personally I had always been fine with that. I’d stay up into the wee hours of the morning watching movies and then sleep until noon, sometimes 1pm. Upon awakening I would lounge in the bed, eventually get something to eat, do what I needed to do then start the same routine all over again. Ahh the life! Or so I thought.
But lately I’ve been feeling an urge from God to change my sleep pattern.
I’m fighting that.
I’m wondering why my husband won’t just change his pattern or why he won’t just get his own breakfast and just let me sleep.
But the scripture tells me why.
I say all this to say, that no matter how many adjustments our spouse makes for us, we should be considerate and not just insist we get it all our way.
Like my Pastor says, when you get married you trade in the I for us and what you use to do when you were single, you can no longer continue to do when you’re married.
We live in a world where it’s all about doing what makes us feel good; but as a Christian and one that wants to be led by God, that logic can have no place in our homes.
Is God offering you a better way of doing things in your household? One that could bring greater satisfaction, closeness or fulfillment?
Maybe God is calling you to a more intimate relationship with Him and you’re fighting it; wondering why you have to do certain things in order to achieve greater.
Well you do. So just surrender to His will and do everything He is telling you to do. Don’t miss your opportunity. I certainly don’t plan to miss mine.
It all may feel like a lot of work…like maintaining a normal (sleep) schedule…but I believe that it will be well worth it in the end. I’ve learned over the years that surrender advances, so Lord I surrender all!
