Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
I've had my battles with insomnia, and I couldn't fix the problem myself. Even when I tried all the recommendations, tried praying and spending time in the Word, tried, tried,tried.
I had to stop trying. I couldn't "earn" sleep. I had to learn to receive it.
In this season of being an empty nester, I have had to release and trust. God has blessed me with an incomparable gift. I didn't even know to ask for it. It is the joy of His intimate omnipresence. The joy of an overflowingly grateful heart.
The result is peace. And rest. The kind that He alone can provide.
Have a wonderfully blessed Sunday!
Thank you Charlotte and Ginger, for hosting this blessed party. It blesses and feeds us!
