God is Always Awake

A couple of nights ago, I suffered restless leg syndrome all night long. I finally slept about an hour and a half. I usually sleep well. My hubby was dozing away. I couldn't even sit. I stood most of the night

  Night is a lonely time when you're awake. Everyone is asleep or on their jobs. You can't call anyone for encouragement. It's not safe to go running around town by yourself. So, I walked back and forth. I stood and swayed to the tempo in my head.

  Most of all, I prayed. Praise God. He's never asleep. I could talk with Him about anything. He created me, so He knows all about my troublesome aches and pains. It's a great time to intercede for your children, your friends, and your church.

  I didn't like having that fitful night, but God used it for good.

  When a restless night ends, it's like dawn over our world.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.  Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 
                                    Psalm 121: 3-4 KJV
 
 
I love the quote: Why lay awake worrying? Give the job to the Lord. He'll be awake anyway.
