A sleeping pill will never take the place of a clear conscience. –Cantor

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

I’m not sure about you but there have been times in my life that I couldn’t get much sleep. There was such a burden about a situation it consumed my thought life. Waking up in the middle of the night with those very thoughts on my mind became almost an every night event. They affected me physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Sometimes the problem was conscience sin I had committed, at other times it was the sin of not trusting the Lord while in a difficult circumstance. Over the course of those times I have found, time and time again, the best place for me to be was on my knees. On my knees praying for forgiveness, on my knees begging for God to intervene, on my knees asking God to move mountains that only He could move.

Child of God, be reminded of this awesome truth this morning, “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13

With God’s mercy comes one of the best night’s sleep a man, woman, boy, or girl can have!
