When my friend Floss lies awake at night, she thinks about the lyrics of the hymn “My Jesus I Love Thee.” She calls it her “middle-of-the-night” song because it helps her to remember God’s promises and the many reasons that she loves Him.

Sleep is a necessary—but sometimes elusive—part of life. At times we may sense the voice of the Holy Spirit bringing unconfessed sin to our mind. Or we begin worrying about our job, our relationships, our finances, our health, or our children. Soon a full-scale dystopian future starts running on a loop in our brain. We assume we nodded off for a bit, but when we look at the clock, we realize it’s been only moments since we last checked.

In Proverbs 3:19–24, King Solomon suggested that we can receive sleep benefits when we embrace God’s wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. In fact, he claimed, “They will be life for you . . . . When you lie down, you will not be afraid [and] your sleep will be sweet” (vv. 22, 24).

Maybe we all need a “middle-of-the-night” song, a prayer, or Bible verse to softly whisper to help us shift our jumbled-up thoughts to a mind fully focused on God and His character. A clear conscience and a heart full of gratitude for God’s faithfulness and love can bring us sleep that’s sweet.

Thanks for joining us for today's encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional.

Cindy reasons she loves him. We realize it's been only moments since we last checked. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Proverbs chapter 3, verses 19 through 24. Let's pray. Dear God, we know that worries can lead to a lot of mental and emotional, even physical health problems. Help us to hold our concerns out to You and trust You to carry them for us. Remind us of Your faithfulness and give us rest. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
