In the midst of being tired and wanting to go to sleep, I choose to Praise God.
I sing verse 1 and 2 of Psalm 121, I will lift up my eyes to the hills from which cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord. As I begin to worship and sing to the Lord, my strength is renewed. As I continue to worship, I feel the tiredness lift, until it is gone. My mind and body is renewed. I am refreshed!
Psalm 121 King James Version (KJV)
121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. 8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
When you are feeling tired and need to be renewed, trying worshipping the Lord and say no to the candy, soda, chips, popcorn, cake, coffee and tea. 🙂
