A Daily Do-Over

He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake. Psalm 23:2-3

Have you ever gone much too long without sleep? You begin seeing things that aren’t there and saying thing you wish you wouldn’t say. For whatever reason you push and push yourself until you have to get rest.

Proper rest does the two things mentioned in these verses: restores the body and refreshes the soul. Our soul, much like our body, can become weary and troubled, tired of all that life has thrown at us. It’s the very reason we need a reset every day.

Ask God for a refreshing of the soul every night, and watch God bless.
