This gives new meaning to the phrase: "sleeping like a baby," don't you think?
Sometimes I wish I were this able--when 2 a.m. gives birth to ideas, inspiration...or worry. It would be so nice to simply bend over my laptop and drop. Drop the quandries, the fresh new phrase--the heartaches and burdens and just turn off the lights of my mind.
Oh, Lord, let me rest in Thee and release the difficulties, the challenges, the anxiety, the grief...and even the tantalizing excitement this life offers. Release me from those things which seek to rob me of bodily rest, of spiritual calm, of mental clarity. For those kindred spirits who share my plight, I pray for deeper sleep, for greater restoration of joy and hope in daily moments of fatigue. Thank You for the grace to meet this new day with new mercies for what is ahead. selahV
