600 Personal Development Exercises
do one a day - every day!
In the quiet of night-time,
at three in the morning,
when I am supposed to be asleep.
My head is full
of problems to be solved,
and worries about those I love.
Instead of these worldly concerns
taking me away from God,
I find they bring me closer to him.
My worries are an open door
to be with love, and
to work out what we should do.
But this is more
than problem solving,
or a business meeting.
This is a joyful relationship
with love, at now, four in the morning,
whilst the world sleeps.
And he is there, every night,
for each of us.
Waiting to be with us.
Waiting to be asked,
to sort out the troubles
and worries that keep us awake.
If we look out our window
we see that the problems
that consume our thinking, are
in fact a blessing, a wake-up call,
an invitation and a joyful reminder,
of the love that waits for us in the night.
