The blankets were pulled back, and the pillow fluffed. I was so ready for bed. On most days, by the time bedtime rolls around I am so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open. The busyness of life can be, and often is, draining. Don’t we all feel it?
I over-think. Over-stress. Over-worry. My head aches, my neck is sore, and if I sit for more than a few moments I will fall asleep. I need to keep going…….
What I really need is rest. Body relaxing, spirit rejuvenating, mind soothing, rest.
In peace, I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8 NIV
