Last night I was brooding over a situation involving my child and some of her friends. It is a difficult situation, that handled wrong could cause hurt feelings or embarrassment. I had determined last night that I was going to have to get involved and "do" something. But then I slept, hard, for 10.5 hours. And this morning I have decided that I should pray about the situation, and then stand back...with my MOUTH CLOSED....and watch God work. My heart is more at peace with this decision, and ,for now, my anxiety and turmoil are gone.
I am reminded that sleep is not a luxury, but a necessity. As such, it should be given priority over some things....computer time for one. When we are tired, we are ruled more by emotion than reason. That is dangerous. Emotion should influence. Never, ever should it rule.
So, anyone up for a nap? ;)
