While I am sleeping....

About two months ago I was having brunch with a former nursing prof now in Africa. While we were catching up on life events that have occurred over the last 15 years and contemplating what the future may hold she reminded me that sometimes God moves in seemingly little ways that have big outcomes. I joked with her that since I work nights a lot of the "insignificant" moments occur while I am asleep!
Tonight I am catching up on my Bible study homework on the book of Esther. In this book some very pivotal things occurred while most of the country was asleep and a king had a case of insomnia. "When you put your head on the pillow at night, you never know what God will do before morning." I am wondering what He is up to now as there seem to be some crossroads that I went through unwittingly and now find myself on a different direction then I originally planned.
It is after midnight and I plan on following the ancient King of Persia's example and reviewing the blog of the "chronicles, the record of his reign". :) I pray that when my head is on my neglected pillow God will be at work while I am sleeping.

I love this. God never sleeps and continues on with his plans while we sleep! Hope he clearly guides you through the crossroads! :)
