Good Night Promise

The writing of this the other night brought me peace as I drifted off to sleep. I guess that is why I write many of these evening blessings/poems while in bed. It is good for the brain and the soul to give them something else to chew on other than the stress and troubles of the day. At the end of the day; powerless to do anything about what happened that day or what will happen tomorrow, all I want to know is that my life is secure in God’s hands. I want to know that everything will ultimately be alright.

May this poem bring you peace as you retire at day’s end. God’s promise to you, in Jesus Christ, is that you are His forever. Even in the vulnerable state of sleeping, your soul is always safe in Him. Let your troubles go and rest in Him.

Good night my lovely one.
Lay down your weary head.
Relax those tired eyes.
Your day is now all done.

Good night my little one.
Your soul is safely kept.
If death shall quickly come.
In Jesus you have won.

Good night my chosen child.
You will be always mine.
My longing gaze at you.
Will always bring a smile.

Now rest and sleep this night.
And do not fear or fret.
I’ll keep you close to me.
You’ll never leave my sight.
