How soundly do you sleep at night when you go to bed?
Is it easy for you to sleep?
There are people who do not find it difficult to fall asleep. They sleep with great ease. When they put down their heads, it does not take them long to start snoring.
Others are different. Sleep does not easily come to them. In bed, they turn from side to side and sleep does not come.They look up at the ceiling and count the mosquitoes passing, but sleep does not come. Then they begin to take one problem after another and examine. All types of good and bad ideas pass through their minds.
May of us are like this. We spend many sleepless nights for one reason or the other. Business people spend sleepless nights calculating business. They do not know whether things will work out well for them or not. People spend sleepless nights worrying about financial problems.
You may see someone moving on the street and think he is fine when he is dying under the yoke of problems.
There are problems everywhere; but there is one thing about problems which is worth underscoring. You may have a problem and think it is the worst problem in the world when it is not. It is when you see other people’s problems that you know yours is more or less child’s play.
Another thing is problems pass away. No problem lasts for ever. You may think your problem will take away your head when in reality it is just a common problem. It is true that problems take away heads; but you must be careful that this does not happen to you.
If you live a reckless life, you can create problems that will take away your head. Secondly, if you live as if there were no God, you can be sure to create problems that will take away your head. If you have fear of the Lord, you are well placed to handle any problem that comes your way; and will go to bed and sleep soundly even if you lie on a plank bed.
You do not have to depend on yourself alone to solve your problem. God is there for you. Go to him; depend on him. He will never fail you. He will make you sleep soundly at night.
Take note that sound sleep does not just come. You sleep soundly only when you make it possible for you to sleep soundly. Remember these 10 points:
- Living a responsible life.
- Being disciplined and organised;
- Not letting problems take control of your life;
- Putting God at the center of your life.
- Making sleeping time an important time.
- Thank God for your day;
- Thank God when you get up in the morning.
- Do not go to bed with a grudge against a fellow human.
- Always forgive those who wrong you.
- Don’t take anger or worries to bed.
Many wishes to you for sound sleep when you go to bed. You will get up resfreshed and ready to face another day. Blessings!
