My wife often tells me that I am asleep before my head hits the pillow at night. I jokingly tell her that I have a clear conscience so I can fall asleep quickly. There are also nights when I have things on my mind that keep me awake with a troubled mind. The truth is the world is full of people who can not rest at night. They toss and turn all night thinking about things that have happened or things that may happen in their lives. Nothing irritates our spirit and disturbs our sleep more than having differences with one another. How often have you laid awake all night thinking of an event, words you said, or things you have done? One of the best sleep aids for all of us was prescribed by God in the scripture. There is nothing that compares to being at peace with others. (Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.) Our emotions are a very strong force. When we allow them to run wild, we allow them to control us instead of us controlling them. When you settle those issues that disturb you, and take control of your emotions, you can live in peace. I realize that you walk and have walked through things in your life that I have never faced, but I know that God will do for you what He has done for a million others. God will strengthen you when you choose to live at peace with others. You may never be able to change the other person or persons, but if you will change, you will benefit more than you can imagine. Live in peace. Settle those issues. Let God give you one of “HIS PILLOWS.” Pastor Don
