Sleep

Some nights I don’t sleep as well as I would like. How do I use the time? Worrying? Tossing and turning?

Or do I spend the hours in thoughtful reflection of how good God is to me?

I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy; I smack my lips. It’s time to shout praises! If I’m sleepless at midnight, I spend the hours in grateful reflection. Because you’ve always stood up for me, I’m free to run and play. I hold on to you for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post. | Psalm 63:5-8 (The Message Bible)

King David shows the right path here. God is in a good mood. God always stands up for me. God holds me steady.

That is just the way God is. That is His very nature.

I should focus my time on what God is doing versus worrying about what He isn’t.
