Where Are You Sleep?
Usually by now I’m fast asleep. My nighttime medications help me get the sleep I can’t get on my own. Somehow that’s not the case tonight, but hopefully that changes soon. My wife is fast asleep beside me. Typically I’m out way before her.
Sleep is definitely one of the best ways for the body and mind to be renewed. In my case it’s a critical break needed from pain. It also shortens my day and gives me a chance at normalcy. My body must get at least 8 hours rest to have the best shot at operating for 8 hours during the day.
Fortunately, I am pretty comfortable at nearly 2am. The yawning is increasing and that’s a good sign. My prayers have been many as God has my full attention. I keep thanking Him for all He has done, is doing, and will do. I’ve also given him all my requests and heartfelt concerns. This all together brings a huge sense of peace in my heart.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
