Don't Toss And Turn

Do you ever have those nights? You know, where you toss and turn all night? But no matter what you try, you can't seem to stop your mind from running?

Yes, there have been so many times that I feel like my mind is running 90 miles per hour. I can't get it to stop chattering long enough to let me drift off to sleep.

Meditate On God's Word 

I have found that meditating on God's Word helps me so much. I will spend time throughout the day memorizing a verse and then at night, I recall it. I keep going over it, in my mind, until I have peace. Usually, I fall asleep while doing that. And, if I wake up, to roll over, I recall the verse again until I drift back off to sleep. 

I have gathered a few verses about sleep, rest, and about being safe while you rest. Grab one and start memorizing it today.

Verses On Sleep 

Psalms 3:5 NIV

I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.

Psalms 4:8 NIV

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Psalms 121:1‭-‬8 NIV

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
