I've discovered two very important facts in the past 24 hours.
First, if I ask God to give me understanding about something right before going to sleep, I shouldn't be at all surprised if he wakes me up at 5 a.m. to enlighten me. What I am surprised about is that I didn't feel the slightest twinge of frustration at having my sleep interrupted like I would if anyone else dared to wake me at that time to answer a question. :-)
Second, I should never try to figure out what somebody who was speaking male meant when I am not feeling well. It will color my interpretation a totally yucky shade of negative. And then I will have to ask God to help me understand, which might lead to being awakened at 5 a.m., which is really not conducive to feeling better.
