My side of the bed
It's amazing how we title things as "mine" and "yours". Philippians 4:7 says: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. This scripture came to me while I was trying to rest in the bed that my husband and I share. While he is recouperating from open heart surgery, I lay in bed trying to determine what side of the bed should I sleep on. He has his side and I have my side. When he is home, we get on our side of the bed and then meet up somewhere in the middle. Hubby is always scratching my leg in the middle of the night and I constantly tell him to move back over to your side of the bed and then cut those hard toenails. Last night was one of those nights where I wanted to feel those hard toenails. I couldn't rest well on my side nor could I rest well on his side, but I found that when I shifted myself in the middle of the bed where it was like unity, I fell asleep and didn't know what had hit me. I understood the scripture even more because sometimes we get so caught up with the things of this world that we don't even have time to understand what God is saying to us. Sometimes it could be slow down, speed up, or just move in the middle.
