Too much activity gives you restless dreams; too many words make you a fool. Ecclesiastes 5:3 NLT
Too much activity gives you restless dreams.
Lord I can’t sleep.
Or rather I go to sleep, then wake up.
My mind races with items left undone.
My heart echoes with voices that demand, “Do, do, do!”
My nerves fidget and frazzle, taut between yesterday and tomorrow.
I focus more on the night’s shadows than Your light’s guidance.
Too much activity results in restless dreams.
I fill my time with jagged emptiness instead of creating space for You.
When I do pause and turn my heart to You,
Once again You gently tell me to rest, rest in You.
Your soothing whisper quiets the noise in my soul
Your arms enfold me and I snuggle into peaceful slumber.
And at last sleep.
