Christian Meditation – God & # 39; s gift of a healthy sleep

Sleep. Safe, quiet and nutritious. Restoration and healing of mind and body.

Insomnia. Restless mind and restless body, burning eyes, and the desire for peace, comfort and relaxation.

The Psalmist knew what it was like to have trouble sleeping. His words hit home, because we all know how it feels.

I'm tired of sighing. Every night my bed swim … my eyes have become wasted with grief. Ps 6: 7-8 the night my hand stretched out without weariness; My soul refused to be comforted … He kept his eyelids open … Ps 77: 2; 4

Insomnia hurts the body and the mind, a problem caused by diabetes or heart disease, leading to accidents and poor job performance, and so we have a witty, irritable and moody.

We all want a relaxing sleep, a healthy body and joyful energy. The question for many is how? Most people experience occasional sleeplessness, but for many, lack of sleep has become a painful life.

You & # 39; ve probably read the tips: Exercise more, drink less alcohol, use white noise to a hot bath, sleep in a cool room, drink warm milk (OK, I know it really helps, but it & # 39; d rather just stay! )

All of these things must be true. And even if they do not, why not?

I do not sleep well, if you do not exercise regularly can expect to see. Alcohol make you sleepy, but it will also shatter the structure of sleep, which woke up again and again, superficial, poor quality of sleep in between meals. A warm bath, the hum of a fan in a cool, dark room … all good ideas, the importance of good quality sleep.

But what if you & # 39; ve all these things and still have problems sleeping?

David knew what brought him healthy sleep and she spends much of her time of joy and pleasure. We & # 39, David's different when you sleep?

You did joy in my heart … I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me to dwell do you. Ps 5: 7-8 I went to bed and slept, woke up, for the Lord has kept me. No need to fear the tens of thousands of people who set me in front of him. Ps 4: 5-6

Sleep comes when we know that & # 39; and safe. And that certainty comes trust in the Lord. The comfort knowing you & # 39; safely in his hand.

There will be trouble and when & # 39; s true that most of the things I worry about never happen, you know, some you can! Worries are growing concerns about the real and reflect your love for others is the hope for the future it is. They may be battling heartbreak and loss, and very well need to confront the real problem in the morning.

But the problem does not help, no matter how real concern. And in your heart you know that … and so the fears and concerns begin again.

At times, indeed, it seems, is scheduled for tens of thousands of them against us! We want that the fears and concerns of the & # 39; head chatter & # 39; for her, but how? How to peace and restful sleep, which they hope that could be safely fixed, no matter what?

Meditate on your heart, after the bed and still. Ps 4: 4 I will remember my song in the night; I'm thinking of my heart … Ps 77: 6

In meditation, God speaks to our hearts, to our minds and our bodies. He gives us peace … the deepest level, and we can relax and sleep in the peace of his safety. In meditation, stuffing our hearts the warmth of His love. He is to wash the body with soothing cascade of biochemical, giving us everything you need to sleep deeply and richly.

And the more you meditate, the more sleep!

So if you & # 39; fights of the night, remember David & # 39; and the words and let God & # 39; s gift of peaceful meditation fills your soul with comfort and rest of the body.
