This morning I woke up just like any other morning—a little groggy, very tired, and wanting to go back to sleep. For some reason I thought about the people that go to sleep and never wake up. Then I thought about my grandfather. I was 13-years-old when I found out that he had died in his sleep.
I don’t think we realize how incredible it is to wake up in the morning.
We assume that our eyes will open after we go to sleep. It made me think about James 4:13-14— “13 Look here, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.’ 14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone” (NLT).
We need to stop taking things for granted. Have you thanked God for today?
