Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams by Renee Burt

Proverbs 3:24 AMP ~ When you lie down, you shall not be afraid; yes, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet.

On Friday night, I babysat my granddaughters overnight. And before I put them to sleep, I prayed the same prayer with them that I used to pray at night with my kids ~ that they would have no bad thoughts and no bad dreams, and that they would have sweet sleep. Well, at 1:30 a.m., I woke up having a terrible nightmare...that someone was trying to break into the house, and I kept trying to call someone on the phone to come help, but I kept pushing the wrong buttons. Have you ever had a dream like that? It woke me up good! After an hour of lying there awake, I finally prayed and asked the Lord to please help me calm down, fall asleep, and get some sweet sleep. In my heart, it was as if I heard Him say, "It's about time you asked!" And He reminded me of today's verse, that isn't just for kids, but for us too! So how have you been sleeping lately? Grab hold of today's verse for yourself every night...and have yourself some sweet dreams!

Proverbs 3:24 AMP ~ When you lie down, you shall not be afraid; yes, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet.
