It's a God Thing

     How well did you sleep last night?  Did you toss and turn all night?  Often a bed that has been slept in overnight looks like a frazzled mess by morning.
     I started having to use a breathing machine to sleep at night about twenty-one years ago.  The type of machine has changed over the years.  The one thing that has remained the same is having to sleep on my back in one position all night long. Yes, every night for over two decades. You might be saying 'I couldn't do that I have to sleep on my side or move around or how ever you like to sleep.'  I thought the same things back in 1992.  The 'God thing' is the peace and rest He has given me each of these 7,665 nights to let go of my body's desire to move around.  This is what 'Be still and know that I am God' means in part to me.  He is in control and can give us the rest we need, when we turn our burdens over to Him.
