An Invitation...A Call To Intimacy

(From my journal last Friday night 2:00 a.m.)

Dark outside, the day sleeps.  The only sounds uttered are those of tiny crickets hidden in blades of grass.  The only movements made by the glaring red numbers on the clock, a gentle reminder that time continues even when everything else seems to stop.  My body commands sleep but my soul awakens, desperate for its Maker.

In the stillness, He is here.

I sense His majesty in the silence.  Overwhelmed by His presence I can only breathe.

How many times have I ignored this invitation...this call to intimacy?

Let not one opportunity pass me by....let not one invitation go unanswered.

Shelly - simply beautiful.

I was reminded of the many times that I either could not fall asleep, or was awakened in the wee hours of the night. And yes, I have been overcome by longing for the Lord at those times.

And it seems that He speaks so very quietly as He draws so very close...
