Daily Devotional (April 24th): Lord, I’m Yours … Peaceful Trust

by Aaron Dunlop

MIS85-2

“I fell into a deep and peaceful sleep. I felt like a little child, fully dependent on someone wise and knowing. I had grown used to thinking that I was taking care of myself. Leaving my faculty post, even temporarily, was my way of saying, ‘Lord, I’m yours; give me what you will have me to hold.’ There, as the fog of sleep receded, I experienced something that I simply could not conjure up in my consciousness: I experienced peaceful trust.” (p. 69)

Reading: My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. —Psalm 31:15
