Encountering Jesus Personally
When Worry Keeps You Awake at Night

Episode 12 | March 18, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for Episode 12 in our seven-week series, The Psalms of Ascent: A Lenten Pilgrimage. The word translated “ascent” means “to go up.” It gives an idea of being on a journey, moving to a higher place spiritually. In this week's episode, Lisa and Laura dive into Psalm 134 and ask the question, “Why do our heads fill with worry as soon as they hit the pillow?” We are experts at keeping ourselves busy during the day. But then the night comes: it’s dark and quiet. What happens then? If worry keeps you awake, grab your Bible (and a cup of strong coffee!) and get ready to invite Him in. He has a word of comfort for you.

Open your Heart to our key Scripture. 
Psalm 134:1–3. Praise in the Night.
Come, bless the Lord,
All you servants of the Lord,
Who stand by night in the house of the Lord!
Lift up your hands to the holy place,
And bless the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion,
He who made heaven and earth.

Open your Bible to other Scriptures referenced in this episode.

Invite Him in with this episode’s reflection.
Take some time to journal praise and thanksgiving to God for these three things:
Who He is…
What He does…
What He gives…
