Rises Before Dawn or Whatever

This entry is part 12 of 13 in the series Proverbs 31 Hands On


Proverbs 31: 15
She gets up while it is still dark;

Some folks are naturally night owls, while others arise cheerily with the dawn. My energy peeks around mid-morning. Getting up while it’s still dark does not “do it” for everyone. How about you? When is your prime time?

I need sleep. My goodness, if I was up for the day at 4:55 a.m. I’d be ready for bed by 4:55 p.m. For real, passed out by dinner. So, during this time of baby raising and 5 a.m. feedings (if not 4:30 a.m.) I’m choosing to sleep.

I may not see the sunrise. But, I do see the point of this verse.

Be ready to serve, reflect, prepare or whatever it is that is needed to get your daily priorities straight…at anytime. Let nothing come between you and your purpose.

It is my priority to sleep until daybreak, or rather, go back to sleep after I have already been up feeding babies in the dark. (Which, among other things is my purpose these days.)

Until, another time Dark, until another time.

    lol man i feel ya. but i still feel there is something about that morning hour with the Lord. its quiet and everyone is still asleep (if im lucky) there’d be no making 6 am without my pot of coffee tho – and if there is no coffee – there is no 6am :)

    My blog is dedicated to my personal pursuit of proverbs 31. I also did a series on it a few mo. back. I look forward to seeing your take! ;) I agree, I think that v. 15 is more about being ‘available and prepared to serve’ than actually rising at a certain time.

    Love your perspective on this post! Ironically I used to be an early riser until I became a mother and now I am most productive in the pm. Have a blessed weekend!

Welcome to Just a Blink

My Family

Hi! My name is Jess.

When I'm 90 I'll probably feel like my whole life was just a blink. Even my early 30's it feels like life is speeding by.

Just A Blink gives me a place to jot down all that makes my life full. I write about thrifty home decor, family life, and finding simplicity.

My posts cover everything from my garage sale addiction to how I live my faith.

Thanks for reading along. Watch as time flies, it'll be fun!
