The other morning, I got up to pray and write.
After prayers, I settled at my desk. I looked up to check the time and I noticed my favorite clock had stopped at 3:00 am. I thought to myself, “Interesting.”
Put in another battery and the clock would not work. I let it go.
Yesterday at 3 pm, I took the clock down, removed all the batteries, reset the time and it began to tick.
Early this morning, I awoke at 3:00 am. Of course, I had a ton of stuff in my head about what lay ahead for the day. I was getting the nudge to pray.
It is important to pay attention to the little stuff that goes on around us. There can be a message hidden in the experience that “Heaven is calling!”
The veil that exists between our world and the heaven world holds us in balance, “Those who are wise, will shine like the brightness of the heavens.”
The crest or breath of heaven reveals itself to us, during a time of need.
In this new year, the lines of communication have opened and perhaps, we need assistance from that world to help make sense of our own; “Thy people shall be delivered.”
What did Jesus say, “Behold I stand at the door and knock.” Heaven is knocking on our door, calling us to come and sit at God’s Table to be fed and nurtured.
We get a vision of heaven in order to have hope in tomorrow; a glimpse of the divine that helps us to steer a rocky ship across turbulent waters.
If you are waking up between 3 am and 6 am, during the fourth watch of the night, do not despair, “In the days of darkness my elect shall not sleep. They shall pray incessantly and shall not be disappointed.”
God is calling us to get up and pray. If we do, we shall not be disappointed. Doesn’t that offer you a bit of hope?
