Sleep is a Gift from God (Psalm 127:1-5)

As you look back on 2019, how do you assess it?
And what do you expect in 2020?
There’s a lot of talk about being blessed today, even from people who don’t believe in a God who can bless them.
How would you know if you were blessed?
How do you know that God loves you? If the Lord of all the universe loves you, what proof would there be in your life?
So, what does is look like to live knowing that God loves you? Two truths should be obvious to anyone who sees you:

1. You Can’t Achieve True Blessing (v1-2)
2. The LORD Gives True Blessings (v2-5)
