Are you getting enough rest? With all of the chaos going on in the world right now, the answer to this question is most likely, “No.” Although I understand the reason why, nonetheless, this is an issue. Rest plays an essential role in our lives. A lack of rest creates havoc in our bodies that lead to diseases and other problems. Satan attacks us when we are weary and tired (Lk 4: 1-13).
It is during this period of time when Satan inflicts us with his negative traits such as anger, fear, frustration, depression, etc. What many fail to realize is that our mental health issues stem from a lack of spiritual as well as physical rest.
Whenever you feel like life’s negative circumstances are starting to gang up on you, take time out to pray, meditate, and go to sleep. Will your problems magically disappear? Most likely no. However, the combination of prayer and sleep will renew your spirit in such a way that positions you to see life from a new perspective as well as offer you a solution to your problems.
Make “me” time essential so you can start creating your own opportunity to live an extraordinary life.
