1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
The choices I make when I am awake affect the quality of my sleep! When passionate or pride-full thoughts have domineered my mind, careless words have slipped from my tongue or I have acted in angry or self-centerd ways, mind, body and soul collude to torture my sleep. But when I live with Christ Jesus, and connect well with him on a continual basis, as I do with others close to me, the thoughts I think, words I speak and actions I do will be influenced and motivated by his wisdom and his love.Then I will be able to rest (awake or asleep) in peace. Christ Jesus, awake or asleep, let me live with you.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? (Psalm 27:1)
“The proof of love is in the works.” St. Gregory the Great
