as i was laying Harper down for her nap she did her usual list of ploys to get one more minute of staying up. it went a little something like this,
"i gotta go potty"
"i need water"
"i need a hug"
"i want a kiss"
i quietly whispered, "no, honey it's time for nap."
her last and final plea was, "read the bible mommy." i know i know, i should never deny the child God's word, but in the moment i was just thinking she was using it to get more time up. i told her no, and that it was time to take a rest. as i was walking out of the room she asked, "God take a nap?" I smiled, and said, "yes, honey. i'm sure God would love to take a nap."
as i came down the stairs still smirking at all her cuteness i thought to myself about her question. does God nap? you know, i bet He doesn't. he is working round "our" clocks. he is always there listening, talking, teaching, healing, surprising, and holding our hands when we need Him. He doesn't take time off.
boy, am i thankful for that. i need Him 'round the clock. i call on Him multiple times a day and would be absolutely lost with out Him.
here is a song i have been listening to on repeat. it is forever reign by hillsong live
He is good, even when there is nothing good in me.
He is joy, He's the reason that i sing.
my heart will sing no other name, Jesus!!
these words are so precious to me.
i will leave you with a picture of what she should be doing right now, but instead i hear a sweet little voice muffled through the vent talking to her buddies in her bed.
are you in need of a nap? go ahead, take rest in the fact that God doesn't nap and that he is available anytime you need!
