God's Advice When We Struggle To Sleep

The Bible talks about sleep many times. Over and over again, Jesus tells us not to be worried or anxious about our lives. What we will eat, or what we will wear, even what tomorrow will bring, which is a huge reason we don’t sleep. 

“When you lie down, you will not be afraid, when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” (Proverbs 3:24)

One of God's greatest gifts to us on this side of eternity is His peace. 

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Jesus also says He will give us rest. And as I've gotten older rest has become even more important to my sanity . . . so this is a verse I pray on a regular basis! 

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
