I wake up numerous times in the night. Most of those times I feel uneasy, like I’m inwardly afraid something is wrong, or something is going to happen. I was hoping these nights were behind me.

Since I picked up One Thousand Gifts, life has been different. The moments have been lighter, more hopeful. I’ve been enjoying the feeling of peace that has infused my waking hours. It’s been good not to feel the Enemy breathing down my neck.

But he isn’t finished with me yet.

For me, it will be a matter of finding the most efficient way to keep myself reminded that I do not belong to him, that my life and my moments belong to the One who knit me together, the One who is enough. The one who makes it true how perfect love casts out all fear.

I want to wake up singing.

  1. "You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." Isaiah 26:3Praying this for you today. Stopping in from 5 MIn. Fridays!

  2. To wake up singing . . . I can't imagine. I love, however, when God gives me a song in the shower. I suppose that's where my mind really starts to leave sleep behind for the day.

  3. I love to hear that the Lord is doing great things inside you! I'm also glad to hear that Ann's book is so wonderfully changing…I'm starting after I finish my current book.

  4. Beautiful post! I can so relate to something feeling wrong when I wake int he middle of the night. I have to get this book, One Thousand Gifts that everyone is talking about! It sounds life changing."www.thiscatholiclife.com"
