At The End Of The Day


At the end of the day when the day is done, after the setting of the sun … a good night’s sleep is calling your name.


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


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


Night has come. Rest awaits you.


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 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 the 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?

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