#31DaysofWatchingGodMove-And Another One

Last night, I searched for words to soothe the spirit of a weary soul. I pray they did as intended.

Didn’t Work for Me.

I am grateful for my daily practice. Upon rising, I turn off my alarm, reaching for my phone to make my morning devotion and prayers.

Yesterday, I  Watched God.

This Morning, I Was Reminded that God Watches Me.

Sleepless Nights

I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. God will not let your foot be moved; the One who keeps you will not slumber. The One who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. – Psalm 121:1-4 (NRSV) 

I think of God hovering, like a new father, over the cradle of Creation. What joy. What pain. I see God waking, like a mother whose children have long since slept under distant roofs. What love. What faithfulness. A parent with power. 

Late at night, wrestling with the angel of anxiety, I still remind myself, “The One who keeps her will not slumber. The One who keeps her will neither slumber nor sleep.” When I can believe it, I close my eyes. 

I lift up my eyes to the ceiling—from where will my sleep come? God of Heaven and earth, watch over me and all those I love. Release me from the grip of anxiety, and give me rest.

Thank You, God, for Guiding Me til I’m Sure. Amen
