From Psalm 4:8:  “I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.”

Lying awake in night’s darkness

Hearing promises from voices

Most too good to really be true

Filled with countless, empty choices


Tackling another stressful day

Witnessing contrasting voices

Thoughts quite overwhelming again

Faltered in making best choices


Retreating into quiet place

Searching, listening to voices

Father’s Word opens mind and heart

Found at last, His trusted choices


Hearing each righteous cry for help

Nurturing Father’s faithful voice

Enemy’s plan reduced to dust

Raised His Son, salvation’s sole choice


Harvesting empty void no more

Walking in step with Savior’s voice

Jesus cries out, journey finished

Saved man with mercy’s final choice


Seeing truth in these promises

Extending Father’s righteous voice

Grace deepens His Son’s love for thee

Accepting Christ, life’s blessed choice

From John 19:29-30:  “A jar full of sour wine was standing there.  So they put a sponge full of the wine on a branch of hyssop and held it to His mouth.  When Jesus had received the wine, He said, ‘It is finished.’  Then He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.”
