At night

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 10:22 pm

Psalm 16:7 I will bless the lord who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me.

Even at night.  I don’t know if the writer was talking about conscious thoughts in the evening before settling down to sleep, or those moments lying awake in the middle of the night, or maybe even the subconscious processing of the day’s events while asleep.  Maybe all of the above.  What I hear from You during the day stays with me, and I can choose to focus on it at night.

That’s why writing these thoughts down before going to bed is good for my heart – I’m taking the instructions that I’ve read first thing in the morning and putting them fresh again in my mind before I go to sleep.  It’s a way of restoring the focus I may have lost during the day, when so much busyness crowds You out of my thoughts.

Lord, be the last thing I think about when I go to sleep and the first when I wake up.  Help me to keep you at the front of my mind throughout the day.  Renew my mind at night.
