At the End of the Day


At the end of the day when the day is done,

A good night’s sleep is calling your name.

You can already feel your head softly sinking into your pillow.

You slip that last plate in the dishwasher, wipe off the counter and turn off the kitchen light,

Night has come.

Was it a day walked well with the Lord?

Did you talk to Him and rejoice in knowing you are His?

Did you tell Him all your heart’s desires and trust they are safe in His care?

Did you cast all your worries into His hands, the big and the small and all the in between?

Did you trust Him with that fear that crept into your thoughts uninvited?

Did you acknowledge He is the one who knows what’s best?

At the end of the day when the day is done, was it a day walked well with the Lord?

Psalm 4:8
I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 3:4-5
I cried to the Lord with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah
I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
