True Woman Blog: The Spiritual Side of Sleep
When we face difficult circumstances, when we feel like the whole world is against us, or when we've lost the desire to go on, sometimes the most spiritual thing we can do is get some sleep.

Sweet sleep - a Christian perspective
Those who trust in God can rest easy, knowing that God is in control and that nothing will cause God to abandon them. The age-old fears that keep us up at night--fear of death, of rejection, of loss--no longer have a grip on our minds.

Slumber - a Christian perspective
The psalmist writes in Psalm 121 that God does not slumber while he watches us. We don't need to worry that God will drift off or fall asleep while tending to us.

Awaken in the Bible - a Christian perspective
The experience of being saved by Christ is compared to waking up from a deep sleep. While we're asleep, we can't truly experience or control our lives. But when we awaken into Christ's kingdom, we are free to live life to its fullest.

Sleep in the Bible: Psalm 4:8
God is often referred to as a shepherd, and here the imagery continues--we can rest without fear when God is watching out for us.
