Sleep in peace

Psalms 4:8 – In peace I will lie down and sleep, for You alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.

For many years I did not sleep well. My mind was restless and was always racing. Or I was worried or fearful of the future.

The above verse helped me in these times. I would often read it (and others) before bed and then prayerfully ask that God would give me peace to help me sleep.

In short I claimed the above promise. It helped.

Now I sleep really well every night. My watch which records my sleep says I get between 7-8 hours a night. That is a far cry from the 4-5 I used to get!

If you struggle with sleep I would encourage you read the Bible before bed. Find verses that talk about rest and peace and focus your thoughts on God.

Blessings,
