Sleep in Heavenly Peace

The words from one of the most loved Christmas songs are familiar to thousands. But have you ever slept in heavenly peace?

Sleeping like a baby is something many will do just about anything to obtain. For those of us who have a worrying heart and a troubled spirit, sleep is almost as illusive as peace.

Medication is the popular remedy, and sometimes even that doesn’t work.

For many, the problem is neither physical nor mental, but instead is more about spiritual things. Fear, anxiety, and worry wreak havoc on our ability to experience any sense of peace. Those still watches of the night are usually filled with turbulence rather than tranquility.

God gave us provision for all things, including sleepless nights and worrying hearts. And, if we know the Creator’s promises, we can sleep in heavenly peace.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:4-9, NIV


Christmas Blessings, Francine
