Learning to Find Rest
Have you ever had trouble sleeping?
In the book of Esther, the king was having trouble sleeping too, so he asked for the book of the daily events to be read to him.
What an interesting treatment for insomnia?
When I stopped to think about it I realized that’s exactly what a lot of us do? We want to sleep but our mind begins to diagnose the things that have happened that day.
In Matthew 11:28-29
Jesus says, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
I wonder if next time we are struggling to sleep and calm ourselves down we could bring those thoughts to God?
When we bring our burdens to God, He will exchange them for His rest.
