Psalm 63:6 gw


There are many reasons for sleepless nights.
During bouts of sleeplessness our thoughts can wander 
in unpleasant, futile, and disheartening ways
causing worry, sadness, and more restlessness.
Perhaps if we remember these words of David when
sleepless nights happen we will think of our Lord and turn to Him.
Praise and thanksgiving for who He is and what He has done,
meditating on His love, goodness, and faithfulness will turn
worthless wayward thoughts toward peace and rest.

What do you do when you have a sleepless night?

Hebrews 4:12 niv


His Word, the Bible, is one of the ways God communicates with us.
In it we learn what He wants and expects of us.
His sword is not used to destroy us but to shape us into His image.
It may hurt to have the dross cut away but the results will be heavenly.

Has the double-edged sword cut you recently?
What did you feel afterward?
Relief? Anger? Sadness? Gratitude? Loved? Confused?

Proverbs 14:15 niv


There are those who are naïve or gullible and they believe whatever they hear.
We are to be childlike but not foolish, taken in by bravado and fancy talk.
We are to think about where we are going, who we are following,
what we are doing, and why.
We are to be innocent but wise on our journey.

Do you think about what you hear before you believe it?

Psalm 139:23 niv


Our hearts and thoughts are transparent to God.
When we ask Him to search, know, and test our hearts and thoughts we are exposing
our innermost being to His inspection and observation.
We are asking Him to do whatever needs to be done to make us holy.

There are times I want to hide from God because of my sins.
That is when I need to be humble and honest before God and with myself.

Does this verse make you uncomfortable or give you courage?
