I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
I woke up this morning and the first thing that ran through my mind was —
“I wish I could just take a sleep day! Take the whole day and just SLEEP!”
I don’t think I ever wake up any morning bright eyed and bushy tailed! AT ALL. I always want to sleep. I love sleep. My mom told me that when I was a baby she had to WAKE me up to eat because I just wanted to sleep all the time.
I am so so so so tired and I don’t know why. Get me a blanket, a pillow and I am in the best cuddle mode. Like this is me every time, every morning and I can’t wait to get back home so that I can either take a nap or go back to bed! I have the BEST blankets, the most comfortable bed ever and I just want to wrap myself up and continue in dreamy dream land.
Am I the only one like this? I could use some feedback and/or comments!
What it is like for you when you wake? What are the first things that run through your mind? How is your sleep? Are you sleeping well?
I think about the call to prayer –jump on when I can. Try to be as revived as I can, but even the whole time I am still so sleepy all over. It is such a struggle for me. Not really so much of a morning person. I am always hoping that I will be better at this one day–but then here we are 44 years later and I still feel like I LOVE to sleep.
God help me! Sustain me! Give me the strength to keep on. Revive every bone in my body so that I can take on the day as productive as I can be. I don’t want to feel this way and I don’t want to feel like I never get enough rest. Let that not be the first thing that runs through my mind, except how happy that I am to be in Your presence.
In His Name.
