What do you do when awake in middle of the night, unable to sleep?
At times, fear lurks, tangling my thoughts with needless worry.
Yet, I’ve learned the most important thing to do is pray.
Psalm 46:1b NKJV — God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
To hold out my heart before God and seek refuge in His love.
Psalm 62:8 KJV — Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
To relinquish my ideas and plans into the Almighty’s care and enjoy quiet with Him alone.
Often, He brings others to mind and I stand before Him in prayer on their behalf.
In my times of deepest anguish, in those moments of despair, in the times of desperation, He has been my constant Refuge.
His comfort was encompassing when my father died in a tragic accident.
His presence was my constant companion when my body was so wrecked by pain I could neither eat nor sleep.
He’s been my ever faithful, loving, help in these long days of illness.
His Word is true.
He is my Refuge and Strength, a very present help in times of trouble.
And although I have no idea how He is working this all out for my good, I know I can trust Him to do it.
What an incredible God, He is!
Psalm 9:9 KJV — The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
