Normally, I have no trouble sleeping. Normally.
However, on occasion I find myself wide awake when I should be fast asleep...
And yea, though I may be deprived
of my very sleep;
for whatever reason, oh
so sound I cannot keep...
though I be on my feet then when
the sun is far away,
my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
is at my side to stay!
"Yea, Lord, though I toss and turn
and finally arise
in the very hours that
the moonlight magnifies,
there You are, my Father, with
Your ever-listening ear
making sure I'm not alone,
Though I be stressed and anxious, yet
my Father changes not!
And I am led to call on Him
and ask for what He's got:
comfort and serenity,
mercy, peace and love.
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ-
He stays not up above!
This was written years ago. A few years after my career with the grocery store ended. A career that had me on night crew preparing the store for the next day. It was during those shifts that God and I had some quite interesting conversations. We still have those conversations, because He is just as real right now as He was then...no matter what the hour may be!
