Job 6: 2-3 ” Then Job replied: ‘If only my anguish could be weighted and all my misery be placed on the scales! It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas – no wonder my words have been impetuous.’ “

The words of desperation, grief, and discouragement are heavy…they weigh us down to the point we can hardly breathe.  This oppressiveness is only compounded by impulsive, frantic actions as we search for answers.  It doesn’t help either if we’re sleep deprived.  Sometimes the very best thing you can pray for is peace and rest.  When our minds and bodies are frenetic,  balance and reason can go out the window.  Asking the Lord for peace, hope, and sleep can bring us back into alignment.
