If you are joining me here today from my Proverbs 31 Devotional, Battle in the Night, welcome!
Maybe you stopped by because you could relate to my struggle with fear and worry, especially at night. I’d love to say that I have conquered these wee night wars in my mind, but that would simply not be true!
I am still in the process of learning to give all of my concerns to Jesus when my mind and heart want to spiral and fix and then spiral some more!
Recently, I was away from my family for a weekend. When I am not in my own bed, sleep can come hard. Ten o’clock. Eleven o’clock. Twelve o’clock. Still no sleep. I began to worry that in the morning I would be too tired to get my work done!
As I laid there praying a little and thinking a lot, I remembered something I had heard my sister Colleen tell someone earlier. When she can’t sleep, she grabs her cell phone next to her bed and reads the Bible. No need to turn the light on; the cell phone lights up on it’s own! I grabbed my phone and found relief for my soul in God’s word. It was exactly what I needed to chase away the fear and worries of the night. God’s own love letters to me quieted my heart and eventually put me to sleep!
Try putting your phone on silent with a Bible app opened up or purchase a book lamp and lay it right next to your Bible. When fear stirs or worry spins, read a Psalm, especially the last couple chapters. Reading God’s greatness puts our troubles in their right perspective! (I use the YouVersion Bible App).
Today I’m giving away a “Faith Builder” gift pack. I believe that the best way we can build our faith and conquer our worries is by knowing who we are in Christ! My passion is teaching women, young and old alike, to know their identity in Jesus as early as possible!
