Psalm 4:8 KJV
“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord , only makest me dwell in safety.”
The only reason I sleep well at night is because God watches over me.
I used to have bad dreams. Even now, I have them but these days the bad dreams are few and far between, thank God.
But there were times when my soul felt burdened and restless, which in turn resulted in restless nights and troubled sleep.
I remember one night when I woke up feeling cold and so alone. I couldn’t remember what I dreamed about, even now. I only know that it was very disturbing and frightened me. I prayed. I spend most of the night restlessly, until eventually I fell asleep.
When I woke up, not a trace of the bad night remained. It was as if I didn’t have a bad dream. I got up and continued my day quite well. The restless night didn’t affect me negatively or at all.
The only reason I remember this again is because I’m writing this now.
Knowing that He watches over you when you sleep makes your night peaceful and your sleep safe. Pray before you go to bed. Amen.
