Good Night Blessings – For He gives to his beloved sleep!

Good Night Blessings – For He gives to his beloved sleep!

“In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.” Psalm 127:2
What a sweet, wonderful and comforting promise that God grants sleep to those he loves. He enjoys to give us rest and peaceful sleep.

Did you know sleep is mentioned 170 times in the Bible? It is true! So glad that God gives rest as a gift to us and He wants us to take that time to pause and rest. How wonderful.

Take time today to sit back and just quietly take time to be in God’s presence and rest in Him. He will fill you with peace, joy and hope.

Don’t be anxious about anything but trust God. God bless.

Prayer:

Dear God,

Thank you for a wonderful day. Thank you for being with me. Thank you for all the blessings you shower upon me. Thank you for a restful and peaceful night. I trust you. In Jesus name, Amen.

A Desperate Mother Was Turned Away At The Grocery Store. What Followed Was Priceless.

A poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

The grocer scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store.

Visualizing the family needs, she said: “Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.”

The Grocer told her he could not give her credit, as she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family.

The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, “Do you have a grocery list?”

The lady replied, “Yes sir”

“O.K.” he said, “put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs,

I will give you that amount in groceries.”

The lady, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, “I can’t believe it.”

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales.

The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. The grocer stood there in utter disgust.

Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list; it was a prayer which said:

“Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.”

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.

The lady thanked him and left the store.

The customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said, “It was worth every penny of it.”

It was some time later that the grocer discovered the scales were actually broken; therefore, only God knows how much a prayer weighs….

Never underestimate the power of prayer ~ Have a blessed day!
