Hey, It's Dark Outside!

Proverbs 31:15 She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girl. Well, I would be better off just staying up all night! I have a hard time going to sleep, so getting up while it is still dark, sounds like a nightmare to me! LOL Planning, Planning and more Planning is what keeps coming to my mind. And that other "P" word, priorities! She planned to rise early, and get things going. I can tell you, when I do get up and get going early in the mornings, I am way more productive! Are you listening, Teri? You got to make some changes. Another thing, don't you find that when your house is quiet, before everyone gets up and wants something from you, that you can accomplish more? I love that time. This has been a good lesson for me. I know that these are areas I need to personally work on. Now about that servant girl. She not only prepared for her, but for her servant as well. Equality comes to mind. Has Gods placed people in your path that might need a serving of His Love and Grace? I think God wants us to have the spirit of generosity. Doing special things for those who "serve" us. No maid, no problem ( I don''t have one either ) But there are many people out there who serve me. People at the check out line, on the phone, at an appointment and the list just goes on and on. Do you provide them with the "spiritual food" that we have to share? You know, you can't share what you don't have, right? I am going to do my best to rise early, prepare food ( spiritually and physically ) and for my servants as well. You up for the challenge? As my friend Vicky says, I digi-dare you!

Teri, thank you for your insight into this scripture. I often find myself reflecting on the Proverbs 31 woman, and I struggle with all she accomplishes in a day. I personally prefer to stay up late than wake up early. I'm a night owl!
