I often wish for more hours in the day.
I know God has infinite wisdom and my thinking is the equivalent of a pea, but really….I need more time.
Hi. My Name is Lisa and I am a chronic under-sleeper (HI LISA!). I stay up too late. Being awake at 11:00 PM allows me to do the things I can’t do when noses are running and dinner is boiling over and the boys can’t find any clean underwear even though I bought them each 10 new pair last week. I really don’t understand boys.
Anyway, I stay up too late and then I have trouble waking up in the morning and then I stay up late again….round and round I go.
Would more time really help? Or would I just fill it up with more of the same? I start my night doing things like grading school papers and mending hems and end up looking up movie stars on Wikipedia because I am curious about how many times they have been married. Or shopping for rugs I won’t ever buy. I think I need therapy.
At our homeschool Mom’s Meeting last week a bunch of the moms confessed to doing this. Sweet relief! I am not the only pathetic one. My friends are pathetic too, which, sadly, makes me feel better.
As I leave for my trip on Monday, I am really looking forward to the two days of driving all by myself. Me and God are gonna have a long talk. It’s been too long since I’ve been still and quiet enough to listen to what He has to say. I suspect we’ll start with my staying up too late problem. I’ll do some whining and complaining and then He’ll remind me that He made the sun, moon and the stars and I should trust His wisdom.
Deuteronomy 4:29 “But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
I need to stop asking for more time and start using the time I have in a better way. Maybe I don’t need to know how many kids Brad and Angelina have adopted. Could it be possible that this doesn’t affect my life at all? Wow. I am having an ah-ha moment here.
Here’s to time with God. Here’s to sleep. Here’s to finding those packages of clean underwear.
