I should be asleep. Sometimes, sleep just won’t come. Sometimes it’s for no reason – or stupid reasons like eating poorly or too much caffeine – …and sometimes it’s for a specific reason. I just wish the hate would end…but, I know it won’t this side of eternity. The Book of Revelation speaks of the fact that as evil increases, so does righteousness – I believe this is because, for the righteous, the evil can drive us to our knees and to our Source. It’s a vicious cycle that will continue until Christ’s return. So, I will do what every wife and mother trying to breathe in this fallen world must do – cry out the only One who can truly offer PEACE and safety. It is all the breath I have for now…
A David Psalm:
1-3 “God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.” (MSG)
I will lie down in peace and sleep for thou, oh Lord, will keep me safe… .Peace.
