Dear Friends,
I have been away for a few weeks and have not had time to write. I’m back from attending a two-week school and I’m in need of much rest.

Trusting God Gives You Peace

Psalm 4:8 (NLT)
I will lie down in peace and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

Knowing that God is in control of your life will give you peace, joy, and rest. When you go to bed at night, examine your heart and ask yourself daily, “who is in control of my life?” If the answer is “me,” then stop and give that control to the Lord. Surrender to Him again. This is a daily prayer and act of trust. It is a normal tendency to take over your life and circumstances once again, after you just surrendered them to God. You must trust Him and know He will deliver you from the current circumstances you’re in and He will keep you safe.

If you have a job you love, thank God for it every day. If you are asking God for a new job, also thank Him for the future job He has for you and don’t get weary in believing and trusting Him. You are not alone. He will never leave you nor forsake you. When you know this, you will lie down in peace and sleep.
