When I am anxious and can’t sleep I go to the same place. I close my eyes and picture Jesus sitting by a river much like the river I live on here in Texas. The difference is the bank goes directly to the water, it’s grassy and soft and it’s a bug free environment. Anyone living in South Texas knows bug free we ain’t. Anyway He is sitting wearing a perfectly white jalabiyyah (seamless collarless gown) skipping rocks in the placid water. The sky is blue and peace abounds. He always invites me to sit next to Him and in this place He calms all my fears and quiets my soul. All I can think is God is so Good, He’s so good to me.
I took this picture of the Nile in Egypt. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being murdered and attacked in their churches there!
