In The Wake Of The Morning

Two mornings ago, I was suddenly awoken from my sleep at 5:45a.m.

Firstly, because I needed to go to the toilet... But it was an unusual trip because, I was so wide awake, not groggy or even half asleep like how I would normally be if I needed the toilet in between my sleeps. So after I came back from the toilet, I lie on my bed so awake that I was thinking of going to shower, make some breakfast and go to work early.

But as I lie there, a very very old worship song arose from my heart.

"I'll rise with you in the wake of the morning, I'll walk with you in the cool of the night..."

And thats all I remembered, plus knowing its a Joe Pringle song, so his voice was on replay in my head on that two sentences... And as I sang, the Holy Spirit began to stir in my heart to pray for certain people and I just prayed and prayed and sang (all in my heart)....

And eventually drifted off to sleep....

I woke up 2 hours later, very thankfully still remember the tune of the song. And as I search the song on the internet.... I teared as I read the lyrics... every single word ministered to my heart....

Though a short encounter, but so thankful for it....

What a precious experience and I pray for more of such encounters :)

PS: Click here for the song, if you are keen to listen to it :)
