“When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches” (Psalm 63:6).
While research has long extolled the physiological benefits of sleep, the psalmist awakens us to the spiritual benefit of those nights when we cannot. I, too, have found this to be true. The pen on my nightstand can bear testimony to some of the richest thoughts and most formative moments that the Heavenly Father has given me during these times of nocturnal unrest; moments that have eventually become sermons but, more especially, have first impacted and shaped the direction of my life. Before counting sheep try listening to the Lamb of God.
