Can You Reach Me, Lord?

‘As dawn appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered round Him, and He sat down to teach them.’ John 8:2

I read this passage early in the morning with out my glasses on. Instead of ‘teach’ them, I read REACH them. and considered that before God can teach me, He needs to reach me. He sometimes has a hard time doing this. I am so pre-occupied with the things of this world; and my mind wanders on to earthly things. We are asked to pray continually; I often don’t think about God at all. He has much He wants to teach me and so much I need to learn. God often has to wait until the middle of the night when my mind is less cluttered.

I can only pray that He will reach me and then teach me.
