My eyelids are heavy this morning, even though I spent six hours in bed last night.

Of course, I didn’t sleep the instant I hit the mattress, so I actually slept something less than that.

Not enough sleep, I know.

This is my pattern and has been for many years.

Thank God for coffee.

Busy, busy, busy…. that’s the situation.

So busy, in fact, that I dropped the ball last night with respect to Psalm 132:4-5.

Perhaps you did, too.

“I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob” (Psalm 132:4-5).

Yes, I know that the specific context of this passage was David’s desire for a permanent temple in Jerusalem, something that wasn’t accomplished until his son Solomon took over the throne of Israel.

But the principle remains the same regarding the place of prayer to the Lord at the end of each day.

I needed to do more than a check-the-box prayer to the Lord last night and I failed.

I’ve asked for God’s forgiveness. Perhaps you need to do the same.

He’s never too tired to be the perfect, powerful, everpresent God that we need.

Let’s make sure that we’re never too distracted or too “me-istic,” resulting in our failure to give Him the praise and priority He clearly deserves as we close out our day.

As always, I love you

    Thanks for your reminder to put our God first. We mortal being are so caught up with the meism that we sometimes take our Lord for granted and then we get into trouble.
