Do you ever get tired? There are several reasons people get tired, one is because often we work hard and just get exhausted. Just living in these bodies can be tiresome. Did you know that your heart beats 103,689 times every 24 hours. Your blood travels 168,000,000 miles every 24 hours. You breathe 23,040 times every 24 hours. You inhale 438 cubic feet of air every 24 hours. You eat about 3 1/2 pounds of food every 24 hours. You drink about 2.9 quarts of liquid every 24 hours. You lose about a pound of waste every 24 hours. You speak about 4,800 words every 24 hours. You move 750 muscles every 24 hours. Your nails grow .000046 inch every 24 hours. You exercise 7,000,000 brain cells every 24 hours; it is no wonder you feel tired!
There is another reason people get tired and that is because they don’t get enough rest. Sometimes we stay up to late watching our favorite show on TV, when we do go to bed we toss and turn because we have so much on or mind that we can’t stop thinking about things. As Christians we must learn to do what God tells us to do and then leave the results in His hands. We have been called to live by faith which means that we listen, obey, and then rest in the promises of our all-powerful God. Our salvation and serenity depend on our ability to trust God. Will you cast all your cares on Him today and for heaven’s sake get some rest.
