Do Not Go to Sleep Angry

Several years ago, there were times I went to bed angry. I noticed sleep did not come easy when I was upset. I’d lay in bed turning, struggling, and trying to sleep for hours. My mind having full conversations with the one I was upset with. I allowed the situation to take control of my mind instead of remaining firm with what I knew. The angrier I got, the more hours I laid awake. Through the years, I have learned a much better way to handle it. To “let go and let God.” When you choose to forgive, you sleep much better. Here is a tip to help you do this.

Sleepless Nights

“And “don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.” ”

— Ephesians 4:26

The devil came to steal, rob and destroy. When you go to bed angry you allow the offense to take root in your heart and a seed of discontentment starts to develop. The longer you hold on the harder it is to let go of your pain. Trust God and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you. As hard as it is, pray blessings for the one that hurts you and your anger starts to soften.

“See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people. Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

— 1 Thesalonians 5:15-18

Take a few minutes and reflect on the blessings you have received, this creates contentment. Thank Jesus for all that He has done for you. Pray every day and start with thanking God, this softens your heart and opens up your mind.

Thank you Lord for…
