Uneventful Night

When my eyes open and I see
Everything the same as before I went to sleep
I say I’ve been granted another blessing
Of an uneventful night while resting
For when we sleep we don’t have a clue
Of our surroundings or of an emergency we may go through
And many dangers occurred around the city
But none touched me or family

So before my mind gets filled with stuff to do
Or I turn on the morning news
Lord, I take a few minutes to meditate
And give you thanks
For the uneventful night of serenity
Thanks for providing the security.

Scripture reference: Lamentations 3:22-23
Lamentations 3:22-23 says “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning..” This resonates with me when I wake up in the morning and see everything is the same as it was when I went to sleep. And if I was not awakened by any fire, or crime or trip to the emergency room for anyone, then I consider that a new mercy. I used to think of how boring it was that every night/day is the same. But now I realize what a blessing it is. So in the morning I thank the Lord for His protection through the night while most of us sleep.
