I’m finishing my 6th round of Prednisone. I have to take Benadryl to go to sleep. I wake up between 2:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. I force myself to stay in bed until 4:00 a.m.
Yeah, I’m a little sleep-deprived.
Monday, I started the lowest dose. I kept nodding off. All. Day. Long. I fell asleep over and over during the evening.
It’s sunny and gorgeous outside today. I still feel sleepy. I realized I need the rest only God can give.
Psalms 95:11, “So in anger I swore: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.'” Common English Bible
After I read this verse, I took a nap. That half-hour refreshed me. I cut back to 2 cups of coffee and went to bed an hour early.
Over and over, I hear people say they are so tired and so busy. I’m sure they asked God to help them.
The silver lining in the COVID-19 Pandemic is many are working from home. They are not as busy and can enter God’s place of rest.
March 17, 2020: Psalms 95, 97-100, 132; II Chronicles 7; I Kings 9.
