Sleep In Peace ~ December 2

Sleep In Peace

It is that simple

I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, oh Lord, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

Sleep has never been a problem for me, and I find it interesting when those I know—especially those I assume are at peace with God—tell me they have trouble sleeping. My first response is to encourage them by telling them not to let it bother them. Of course, the usual response I get after rendering that sage advice is, “Yes, but ______.” (fill in the blank.)

There are many reasons why folks have difficulty sleeping at night, and most of them center on worry, which is (in my opinion) a form of fear; fear caused by a number of things: health, finances, job, children, spouse. You name it, and somebody right this minute is worrying about it. I believe, even if you insist you must worry your problems into submission, you still need to rest at the end of each day. When your head hits the pillow, I contend you must give it all to God—let him handle it while you get some sleep. If you can’t be at peace during the day, at least let go at night and get some rest.

It is that simple! Lie down at night, and let go. Dwell in the safe and loving arms of the Lord, and sleep in peace.
