In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat for he grants sleep tot those he loves.
Relax. Rest. Sleep.
We burn the candle at both ends when we think it all depends on us. We lie awake at night worrying when we are not resting in him.
We can't rest if we want to control everything around us. We are not in control, whatever we do; but He is, so we can sleep
We can't rest if we are desperate to have just a bit more stuff which, ironically, we think will allow us to rest. Chasing things is a treadmill. We have everything we need in Him, so we can sleep.
We can't rest if we need to be approved by everyone around us, it's exhausting to maintain. He sees us as we really are, but still loves us enough to go to the cross, so we can sleep.
It is impossible to rest in ourselves. Rest in Him
