A Weekend Of Better Sleep
Sleep is such an important part of our well-being, physically and mentally. If we're worn out just getting out of bed, it's going to be a long day. And no, rolling out of bed onto the floor doesn't count as getting up.
On the other hand, when we've gotten the rest we need, we wake up feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to take on the day. A good night's sleep reboots out system and prepares us for whatever lies ahead.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8
Make this a weekend of getting better sleep. I don't mean taking an extra nap this afternoon (although that sounds lovely, doesn't it?) but instead preparing your heart for an amazing night's sleep. How do you do that? By talking to the Shepherd instead of counting sheep.
David wrote this Psalm to praise God for the peace and safety he felt in His presence. He was able to sleep comfortably and wake up refreshed because he trusted int he Lord to stand watch over him by night and take care of whatever situations the day would bring. That's the secret to better sleep.
