Just as a married couple must spend quality time with each other to keep their relationship alive, we must also have quiet time with God in order to continue growing in Him. I can’t think of any better way to wind down, get ready for bed, and prepare for the next day than spending time with Him.
Turn on some worship music and bathe in God’s presence, trusting that He is in control. If you’ve messed up that day, keep in mind that His mercies are new every morning. Give all your burdens to Him, knowing that nothing in your life is too big for God to handle. There is no form of yoga that can completely still your fear the way God can. And guess what? You don’t even have to wait until the end of the day to receive His peace. It’s available to you seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
That’s much better than a bubble bath, don’t you think?
