Last night I couldn’t sleep, my dog was restless and it kept me awake. As I was tossing and turning I thought about the Gospel last Sunday, mostly because I was wishing I could fall asleep as Peter, James and John did, but it did get me to thinking. How many times have I been “asleep” when God called on me? Maybe to be kinder, help someone or worship him? Do you have moments when you think back and wonder if you missed the message that our Lord was trying to tell you or thought I should have done something differently?
“Love not sleep, lest you come to poverty; open your eyes, and you will have plenty of bread.”
