8 By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8
How is your memorization of this Psalm going? Just checking.
Have you ever noticed the last thing that goes into your head at night is usually what stays with you throughout the night? Sometimes it’s a song, a funny video, or just plain news. We can certainly positively (and negatively) impact our dream patterns just by what we listen and see right before we hit the sack.
David seemed to have a song on his heart before he went to sleep. Did David think of the Lord all his waking hours? Probably not, but he was able to recognize His huge influence in his life. Just being able to acknowledge (even to yourself) throughout the day that we are not alone and loved makes a big difference in how we filter what life throws at us.
Take time every day – and often – to smile at what He’s doing in your life.
