Is it just me, or is the quiet of the middle of the night a challenge to faith? As I lay in my quiet room,as usual only my neighbor’s dog and I were awake. He wanted back into the house and I wanted the weight of the world solved and lifted from my shoulders. Would I ever have have enough money . . . strength.. . friends . . . so many worries .. . then the usual reminder brought rest.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
The middle of the night and its darkness can cause anxiety, I feel. In daylight, where the sun shines, it’s a bit easier to hold a positive outlook. More often than not, I’m fine during the day, then once my head hits the pillow, my mind reels to events that cause worry. Maybe it’s the quiet from not being busy doing something; maybe it’s the darkness. But the scripture you chose is perfect.
