RCL Daily Devotion for Friday, March 22, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

If you’ve ever had the experience when you’re out driving and you’re afraid you’re going to fall asleep, you know how terrifying—and totally frustrating—that feeling can be. It doesn’t seem to matter what you do to make the feeling that you’re nodding off go away either! I’ve tried opening the windows in the depth of winter, screaming at the top of my lungs, slapping myself. Nothing seems to work.

The only thing that my body wants to do is to sleep, even if it’s a little cat nap.

Sometimes, I break through the episode. Most times, I have to find somewhere to pull over and close my eyes for 20 minutes, which most often seems to do the trick.

Isn’t our faith life like this sometimes, too. Sometimes we become tired and complacent and the only thing to bring us back to the message of truth is simply doing God’s work in the best way that we can.

Even then, it’s so easy to fall asleep at the wheel.

God, grant me the strength and endurance to listen to your voice, but what’s more, to do your will. Amen.
