Not alone

I’m exhausted, feeling down and lonely, and typically cannot sleep.

A few months ago I would have been lying in bed, thinking about the day, and feeling guilty for all manner of things.

Instead I lie here dwelling on how I am not alone. The Bible has so much to say about God being with us. He is my comfort and my guide. He leads me by still waters. He says “come to me all you who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. My comfort is not ultimately based on whether my boys sleep through the night (although that definitely helps!), but on a God who never changes, who never leaves me, and loves me no matter what.
