Yearning and longing for Him

“My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you.”  Isaiah 26:9.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Isaiah 25-28, and Hebrews 13.

Getting into bed and getting out of bed.  Two different times and two different situations.

In the first, you’re beat and ready to doze off.  In the second, you’re rested and ready to face the world.

In either time, Isaiah has God in his sights.

Some nights, such as last night, sleep comes quickly.  The next thing I know the light is coming in my window.

Other nights are different.  I am awake and waiting for sleep to take over.  Those are ideal times for prayer for me.

I believe that God gets my attention by what I’m thinking about.  If sleep hasn’t arrived there are probably thoughts going through my head.  Perfect topics to pray about.

The morning brings anticipation.  I have to do this.  I should do this.  I could do this.  Plenty of options needing prioritizing.  I MUST get God-connected BEFORE I do any prioritizing!  “Guide me, Lord, I beg.”

“Father, I love You.  Forgive me for disconnecting from You.  It is a brutal mistake on my part.  I need You every second.  I thank You for the opportunities You present to me.  I align myself with You now.  Direct my path, I beg.”

What is on your “yearn-or-long-for” list?  Is God there?  He should be.
