Dear Friends,
Last Sunday we moved our clocks forward one hour for the Daylight Savings… Well, it really messed up my sleep and I’ve been tired the whole week ever since. Every time we make those adjustments it can be hard on our bodies and our sleep suffers. Today I was reminded of these two scriptures that really help me when I am in need of rest and sleep. Enjoy this devotional!

Your Sleep Shall Be Sweet

Psalm 4:8 (KJV) I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

Proverbs 3:24 (KJV)
When thou liest down, thou shall not be afraid: yea, thou shall lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

When we are so busy with work, home, kids, and everything else we manage to get ourselves into, it may be hard to fall asleep when it’s finally time to go to bed.

If you find yourself thinking, worrying, or running lists of things to do in your head when you’re trying to go to sleep, get up and write down everything that is on your mind. This way you won’t forget it. Then reach for your Bible and read the above scriptures. These are promises of God to you. He promises you can trust Him and He will take care of you and all the things that concern you. You are safe with Him, and He promises your sleep will be sweet, peaceful, and safe.
