Wake Up Call

The clock said 4:59 and the alarm was set to go off in one minute.  I had already started to rouse, but I heard a noise that sounded like my son opening his bedroom door.

I jumped out of bed and quickly turned off my alarm.  I knew if my alarm was going off and my son heard it that I would never get him to go back to sleep.

I tip-toed into the hallway to see if he was, in fact, up.  I found his door shut.

For just a moment I wondered what the noise I had heard was, but knew in my heart it was a nudge from God.  "Get up, Jenni.  Your son won't be up for at least another hour.  Use this time.  It is a gift."

I went directly to my computer and started writing.  A very personal story.  A story that I hadn't put on paper until this morning.  A story that I will soon share.

God knew I had this experience ahead of me, but only if I chose to seize the opportunity.

God speaks to us in a multitude of ways through a variety of experiences.  This is how God spoke directly to me today.  How has God spoken to you today?


  1. Hi Jenni,

    So I have been checking everyday to see if you have posted your story, I am excited to read it. I had an almost identical situation like this about a year ago, it was as if the holy spirit were typing for me. Every morning for months I would get up a few hours early, usually without the help of the alarm I would just wake up, before getting ready for work and type my story, by the time all was said and done I had 33 pages written and most of it I don't remember writing.

    Can't wait to read it.

    Blessings to you.

  2. Kandi - Thank you! My plan is Thursday. I have to say that I am a bit nervous about it, but I need to step out in faith and do it. It is a very abbreviated version of my story, but I pray that it will be helpful to others. Hope you are having a great week. :) Jenni
