The Moment I Lay Down


Man Praying

As crazy as it may sound to some the moment I lay down is when my greatest battle begins. It instantly exposes the things inside my back that were not God-made. I do believe God uses doctors, surgeries, technology and medications. However, nothing done to me has brought me much relief. When I lay down I’m reminded of my brokenness.

It feels like metal needs to come out. It feels like I’m far from fixed and something needs to be done. It feels like my hands and feet will never stop itching. It feels like I can’t take much more and like I’ll never get better.

Maybe when you lay down is when your pain most surfaces. Maybe it’s physical or maybe it’s emotional. You wonder if you will ever stop hurting so bad. All I can say from experience is time does bring greater peace, promise and healing. As you keep putting your little hand in God’s great big hand healing will come.

“In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free.The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear.”
Psalm 118:5-6

“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.”
Proverbs 3:24
