My Morning Reminder

 

"Be still and know that I am God." 
-Psalm 46:10

I normally get up at 2:30am and I really wanted ALL my sleep. I need ALL that sleep. But at 1:30 this morning I woke up and could not shut it down. My mind was racing, my heart was racing.. I kept thinking of all the things I need to get done and all the things in my way of getting them done. I felt anxious about all this stuff that I clearly couldn't do anything about at 1:30 in the morning. And so this verse came to me as I prayed silently.. And the Lord began ministering to my anxious heart.

I never did get back to sleep but Jesus and I had a good talk. He invited me to trust Him for ALL the things that concern me. He reminded me that He has me in His hands and that He will help me. And then, He directed me to pray- for other people. And when my attention came off of me and onto others, this crazy peace came over me. Funny how that works. His word cuts through the darkness so you can hear His voice.
