But I remembered what I call the Ernie Beshear Principle. Ernie told me once that when he woke up early, he decided the Lord woke him up to talk to him. So, he prayed until he either went back to sleep or it was time to get up.
I prayed today for those whose needs I know, for our church, our pastor, my family and myself. I got up and read the scriptures for today. Romans 14:17 reminded me that "the kingdom of God is a matter of...righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit". And the Holy Spirit reminded me that I live in the Kingdom of God. I am just passing through this earth.
I may not have all the sleep I want today, but I will not have poverty of spirit. Thank you, Father.
