Sweet Sleep!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Cecil Thompson

Isaiah 26:3-4

"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal."

Have you ever spent a sleepless night tossing and turning? Have you been troubled by frightening dreams that cause you to feel panic stricken? Do you sometimes question what you can do to sleep in the arms of the Lord?

During our Sunday morning prayer time, a 5 year old girl has requested prayer that she will not have “Scary dreams at night.” Her mother also expressed concern because of the bad dreams.

Since then I have been praying and meditating about Hailey’s request and the bad dreams. Last night as I went to sleep I was praying for her to have a restful sleep. During the night I had a recurring dream that I was to write a small book using Bible references for parents to read to their children before bedtime.

It was probably the most vivid dream I have ever had. Today I have started writing the book and as I have researched appropriate Bible stories I have been aware that there are adults that need peaceful sleep as well.

Today’s Scripture is a wonderful passage for we adults to use before we retire for the night. It is a promise that the Lord has given to those who will keep our minds stayed on the Lord.

Here is a challenge for anyone who has been having trouble with night terrors. Search out passages that deal with praise and promise. Read these passages several times before you slip into bed. May God grant you sweet sleep!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing to others!
