Sometime in my late teens/early twenties I came across a song by Chris Rice entitled “Smellin’ Coffee.” These lyrics struck me:

I remember reading You’re the God who never sleeps/and while I’ve been sleeping, You’ve been singing over me..

I loved that thought. That as I slept, unaware, God would be singing blessings and peace and love over me. I hadn’t thought about that for a long time, but then I came across this recently:

And I breathed a little easier.

There is a sense of hyper-vigilance in all of the uncertainty in our world these days. Like we have to know everything, be on top of all the facts, take in all the stats.

But our God is the God who never sleeps. And he’s singing over each of us. So I’d like to encourage you to give up your worries, your fears, your hyper-vigilance to Him as you lay down to rest at the end of the day. And I pray that this will help you sleep.

Until tomorrow, dear friends, may you know that even as you sleep, God is singing over you.
