For the last week or so I have put my "times awake in the middle of the night" to good use! Rather that fretting and stewing about the things I have no control over, I have chosen to pray for our Pilgrim Pals and associates/friends/family by name and by situation.
I've found that it's a great way to "redeem the time". Before I know it, I'm sound asleep, resting in the care of our Almighty God.
Let Him carry the burdens you shoulder, my friends! He invites you to cast them on Him.
"Casting all our cares upon Him, because He cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:7
