Stress keeping you awake at night? Pray!
There was a certain point in my life where I was extremely stressed. The stressful event lasted nearly a year before it was resolved, but the result of that stress was that I was not sleeping well at night at all! I would toss and turn and what little rest I got, I would wake up in the morning feeling exhausted.
I wrote this verse (Psalm 4:8) and taped it to my wall right by my headboard. I made sure I saw it right before I went to sleep at night. No, this verse was not some lucky charm to ward off the sleep stealing demons, but it was a reminder to give my problems to God who is willing and able to help. Praying about this and turning my problems of the day over to God helped me immensely.
So, what helps you fight off stress? What verses comfort you most?
