Even while we sleep......

Though you probe my heart and examine me at night, though you test me, you will find nothing; I have resolved that my mouth will not steps have held to your paths; my feet have not slipped....Psalm 16:3,5

I was tossing and turning over a situation. It was a fitful night, but this morning I awoke to the sound of rain....welcome rain on the rooftop. I heard the gentle patter of it off and on while it was still dark, and though my sleep was not totally restful I was somehow always lulled back to sleep.
I needed the comfort of the Psalms this morning and so I opened my Bible to my old friends that never fail to give me the peace I need in every situation.

Imagine, even while we are sleeping, God is working for us........"I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." Psalm 16:7,8

I am praising and thanking the Lord today, for Godly counsel. For the wisdom I find in His word and for those He has lovingly placed in my life who say just the right thing at the right time.

holy experience
I am giving thanks for my Mom today, who said just the right thing this morning when I needed it. What a solid rock you are! I can always find the right perspective when I talk to you. I thank God for you.


  1. A friend also gave me good encouragement. What amazing people God gives to us, huh?

  2. I was reading those very same verses last night and found them to be such an encouragement.

    Love the photo of your kitty!

  3. Oh thank you, he is very cute and a sweet personality. Briggs loves people! And yes, those verses are such an encouragement......Lori
