Early Morning Lessons
You know how I hate waking up so early in the morning. Well, I was the lucky recipient of a heavy breather caller this morning at 2:30 a.m. Yippee! So not only do I have a pervert with my number but I also was then wide awake in the middle of the night. Dang it. I also learned another lesson on not sleeping. When woken do not start reading a really good book. For then reading is more important than sleep.
Yeah, I started reading "Crave: Wanting So Much More of God" by Chris Tomlinson. Now I felt lucky enough that Chris contacted me to review his book personally. But I did not expect for the book to be so griping to me. Here I was tired, wound up from a horrid crank caller and just wanting to read myself back to sleep. Instead I started finding some answers to a hunger I have. You know when you have that empty pit inside that never can be filled. We all try with food, people, work, hobbies and more. Filling up our time and our lives with busy work but not ever feeling satisfied. We have a craving that there has to be more. Well of course there is.
Many of us know that craving is for God to be part of our lives. Well here Chris helped me see better ways of filling that hole. How I can share and take in God's desires. Especially when I was already so angry and irritated for being rudely woken up. The next thing I realized was that it was 6 a.m. I had been reading 3 1/2 hours and was feeling quite at peace too. Thanks for sharing "Crave: Wanting So Much More of God" with me Chris. And more so, thanks for sharing it with my readers.
