A Missed Opportunity. {FMF #1}

It's baaaack! Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo at Gypsy Mama.  Woohoo!  This is just what I needed for my quiet Friday morning...to write.  just write.  because that's what we do.  for five minutes.

Here goes...

Opportunity.

I knew when I woke up this morning that I had missed it.  

I had missed an opportunity with God.

You see, last night when I went to bed, I asked Him to use even my sleep time for Him, in whatever way.  And when I woke this morning I know He'd talked to me, shared some things with me, and I didn't get up.  I didn't record it.  I missed that precious opportunity.

But God.  My favorite thought...But God...it holds so much promise!

He is so tremendously faithful and so full of grace.  I know we will have many more conversations - maybe even at night and now I'm ready.  I have a new little notebook next to my bed along with a pen. 

I'm ready for that next opportunity, because I know that His mercies are new every morning.

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.  Lam. 3:22-23

Dear Lori
Oh, why does this sound so familiar! Thank you for your good advice! A notebook and a pen it would be. I am so glad that our Lord knows that the spirit is willing, but at times the flesh is so weak! Nice meeting you at FMF.
Much love
Mia
