In Vain You Rise Up Early


The ravishing Mrs. Survance shared this verse recently with someone we love who's been experiencing a lot of stress. It's beautiful in its simplicity, and meditating on it is a great antidote for anxiety.

In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat - for he grants sleep to those he loves. (Psalm 127:2)

I think this is somehow related to the Christian concept of "sabbath". When we rest from our work each week we are refreshed, but more importantly we demonstrate our trust in God to meet our needs rather than depending on our own strength.
