Glimpses of Grace Daily Devotion for May 31, 2017

For Devotional Reading from the Daily Common Lectionary: Psalm 9

Text: I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart;  I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.  I will be glad and exult in you;  I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. (vss. 1 & 2)

Psalm 9 is a reading for this evening, when the day is done. At the end of each day I lie in bed and reflect upon the events of the day. Then I think more deeply upon the two or three things that brought me real joy and “give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart.

We sleep better when we end the day with a heart filled with thanksgiving. We sleep more soundly when we close our eyes enveloped by the Psalmist prayer, “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.” (Ps. 4: 8)

Sleep tight.

As I close my weary eyes, Lord, give me a thankful heart and the confidence that in Your presence I will sleep in safety. Amen.
