Soemtimes life cathces us and forces us to take a step back. During that time of reflection, we need to seek God more diligently. We need to listen to Him and understand that He has a plan for us. God does not want us to suffer. He wants us to live in abundance. When life happens we must not get down and stay there. Pain exists for us all, but we must know how to deal with it and how to move through it. We cannot ask God to be our co-pilot so that we can fall asleep at the wheel.
When we allow the struggles of life to put us to sleep, we have to redirect that energy. Instead of falling into a slumber, we should take a power nap. We should accept the sleep as rest so that we can be alert and ready to meet with God. We must be ready to meet with Him, hear from Him, and listen to what He wants us to do. We have to be ready to move and not allow ourselves to become stuck in our situation. God is always trying to improve our circumstance. That can only happen when we do what we can and let Him do everything else.
Sleep is important. We need it to replenish and to be refreshed. Sleep is a good thing. Many of us have already learned that too much of a good thing can be bad for us. Simply stated…we have to know when it is time to go to sleep and when it is time to wake up!
