Postcards From Heaven block 5...

It seems appropriate to share the next Postcard block on a Sunday.
I've been waiting to give you this one because the promise in Psalm 3:5 has carried me through many a trial, and more restless nights than I can remember.

To know that God's rest is mine, that I can safely put aside all the emotional and physical turmoil of the day - what a gift, a blessing.

When Blossom was young she had occasional nightmares so we began to read this Psalm when she was tucked in bed and pray it's promise over her rest. And you know, the Lord was always faithful. 

Perhaps your sleep is troubled?
There is One who can give you rest, One who can take the burdens and worries of your life and breathe His gentle Spirit upon you. Ask Him...pray simply, "Lord, take my worries this night, wrap me in Your gentle arms and give me rest as I sleep." 

Need another promise?

Psalm 4:8
"In peace I will lie down and sleep, for You alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety."

These are His promises sent by holy mail through His perfect Word, the Bible.

Allie has stitched her version in redwork, and also has the alternate wording from the KJV for you to download (the text only) if you prefer the actual Bible verse to my conversational style postcard. 

Visit my dear friend Allie here to see more of her block and to download the alternate text.

be blessed as you stitch and pray,

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
