Advent: Day 9

Isaiah 26:3 You keep completely safe the people who maintain their faith,
for they trust in you.

A mosquito can keep you awake all night long, even if it never lands on you, just by buzzing near your ear. I've lost whole nights of sleep like that. The amazing thing about a mosquito net is that the very same mosquito buzzing, happening right next to your ear but with a net between you and the mosquito, can be successfully ignored long enough to get to sleep. In the Delta, in the malaria zone, a mosquito can be even harder to ignore and, in fact, should not be ignored without that precious net.

When has the knowledge of the safety of God's net enabled you to ignore that mosquito constantly buzzing near your ear long enough to get some sleep?
