I've got some kind of bug and tried to go to sleep early tonight (last night?). But as of 1 a.m., I've been wide awake and feeling aweful. Not only that, but it's Daylight Saving Time, so somehow that seems to make being awake all night seem even worse.
As usual, I have turned to the Psalms, which almost always seems to be the best antidote for sleeplessness.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
