Exhaustion and Psalms

Sleep- sometimes when I see our children asleep it reminds me so much of Psalms 23. I think mainly because in a few of these instances. They do not intend to be asleep they are merely out due to exhaustion. God grants them deep rest during these time. I think often we try to cram so much into our days and it leads to this sense of exhaustion. I know sometimes I am in weeks of walking exhaustion like now where I just can't get a good nights sleep and feel refreshed so I am praying that the Lord walk me by some still waters and restore my soul tonight so that I may feel renewed in Him.

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
