To take/have forty winks 眨眼四十遍?

To take/have forty winks, phrase (Informal):
   To have a short sleep 小睡片刻:
        Ex.例:Some people would like to have forty winks every day after lunch so they can feel fully recharged.

An author by the name of Ron Mehl wrote a book called God Works the Night Shift. It's subtitle is even more interesting – Acts of Love Your Father Performs Even While You Sleep. Sometimes we feel that God is working miracles in the lives of others, but not in our own. Especially when we are going through difficult times, it may seem as though other people have been richly blessed while our own lives are completely empty.(特別當我們遇到一些困難時,似乎感到其他弟兄姊妹滿有祝福,而自己的生命卻空空如也) Dr. Ron Mehl is uniquely qualified to teach about the goodness of God as he deals with active leukemia(血癌) in his daily life!

Despite the way things sometimes appear, God is continually at work in your life.(主不斷在你生命中作工) In fact, He often does His best works in the darkness, waiting to unveil(揭露) His masterpieces in His perfect time. When it comes to blessing His own children – each and every one of them, God takes it seriously. According to the Bible, “He will not let your foot slip — He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalm 121:3-4) 「他必不叫你的腳搖動;保護你的必不打盹!保護以色列的,也不打盹也不睡覺。」(詩篇121篇3-4節)
