Sleep in Peace


Psalm 4 today reassures us that we can both lie down and sleep in peace, for God alone makes us lie down in safety. I know many people worry I might not be sleeping but I do sleep well and partially because this statement rings true to me. God alone knows what rumbles inside this brain and heart of mine. God also knows what troubles my spirit. God as well knows what quiets me. I have said many times God has this and I am grateful for the sleep and rest I get.

Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord is the refrain. May I be a reflection of your light, Lord.

Off to bed and to sleep.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
