Chastised

I woke up at 3:30 a.m.

I asked God, “Why?” He reminded me of the 3 cups of coffee and 4 glasses of tea that I drank yesterday.

I asked him why it was so hard to drink water. He replied, “It’s stale and you didn’t wash the pitcher out yesterday.”

Yes, I was lazy. Instead of washing the pitcher I use every day and refilling it, I just added water.

Busted.

God chastises us, but his discipline is always for our good.

Hebrews 12:10, “For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in his holiness.” New Living Translation

(And to my kids…we did the best that we knew how.)

Dear Father God,

Thank you for talking to me in the middle of the night. Thank you for never condemning me, but just pointing out what I need to do. Thank you for loving me. 

In Jesus Name,

Amen
