God created you to rest. He wired you to sleep each night. He encourages you not to worry. He even set aside a whole day for rest.
To live in obedience to God we must strive to manage the body He gave us. Convenient stores are stocked with energy drinks. Coffee shops are often opened a block away from another coffee shop. This is evidence that people are tired.
Tonight I need to be in bed by 9:00 because Fridays I need to be up at 6:00. My goal is a minimum of 9 hours a night.
What is your new bed time?
Last night I was in bed practicing the Education part of R.E.N.E.W. program by reading my Bible.
My education plan for the 40 days is to re-read the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke & John as well as the book of Proverbs.
This is a perfect way to calm yourself down and prepare for sleep.
Why read and educate yourself with God's Word?
Proverbs 1:3 Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just, and fair.
Discipline yourself to get to bed early. Renew your mind.
You are going to love the way you feel tomorrow.
Love, Pastor Max
