On Sleep

Psalm 121v3-4 -- ESV
"He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
I need sleep. God never sleeps.
Note to self: "you are not God,
so don't act like you are."

  1. A similar text that I found very useful when I first became a Christian about 11 years ago, and shortly afterwards was revising for my finals at university, is Psalm 127:2 - "In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat - for he grants sleep to those he loves" (NIV, as that was my Bible de chose at that time).
