Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Don’t you love how cats can look so peaceful as they sleep?

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:
for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
Psalm 4:8.

We sleep in peace in the arms of God,
when we yield ourselves up to His providence,
in a delightful consciousness of His tender mercies;
no more restless uncertainties,
no more anxious desires,
no more impatience at the place we are in;
for it is God who has put us there,
and who holds us in His arms.
Can we be unsafe where He has placed us?
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.
