“When you are on your beds, search your hearts
and be silent” – (Psalm 4:4, NIV).
In the book of “The Language of Letting Go”,
emphasizes the importance of contemplating what is on your mind first thing when you wake up in the morning? What is it in that half-asleep, half-awake place? Are you troubled about something? Is there some responsibility you have neglected and is bothering you? Is it a project you’ve been wanting to start but have kept putting it off? Is it an unhealthy relationship you are in and you know you need to get out of? Is it a destructive habit or sin that you feel convicted about?
Whatever is on your mind at this time is coming fromyour inner self, your unconscious mind, or it may be from God’s Spirit. It may be revealing an issue you need to deal with, or a project you’ve been thinking about starting for months. Listen to that voice and do what you know you need to do about it. Don’t put it off. Take care of it each day.
It can help to keep a pad and pen at your bedside and each morning jot down the thing that is pressing on your mind when you first awaken. Sometimes the same issue may come to you in a dream.* It just may be a matter you need to pray about and act on.
