A Word

I was having a hard time sleeping last night. Hunter flips out when he hears a leaf drop which isn't helping my nerves...but at least he's a good watch dog! And every creak, groan and tap in this big house is amplified ten fold when it's empty. You know how it is.

So there I was laying in bed praying, asking God for "peace, to keep us safe, and to allow me to get a good night's sleep to be prepared for the next long day." I felt so strongly prompted to read the Word and instead of picking up where my bookmark was, I decided to start in the psalms. Each one was water for my thirsty soul and just what I needed. I read the first 4 psalms and this is the last verse of psalm 4:

"In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone ,Oh Lord, make me to dwell in safety." ~Psalm 4:8
Coincidence? Most certainly not!
