Sweet Sleep

If you struggle with insomnia, why not try praying?

Do you battle with sleeplessness? You’re not alone! 

I’m amazed at the number of people who struggle with insomnia.  I don’t deal with it on an ongoing basis, but I’ve had nights where I was too consumed by my anxious thoughts. 

When my body’s still and all distractions are put aside, anxiety can invade the crevices of my thought life; particularly if I’ve had an extremely difficult or busy day. Life’s troubles and worries replay themselves in my mind, robbing me of precious physical rest I need.

If you struggle with this, let me encourage you to try praying. You’re awake anyway, right? The Bible says we can give our worries to God by talking to Him in prayer.  Talk to Him about your mounting to do list, your relationship issues, or whatever is troubling you. He responds by offering to exchange them for His peace and, who knows, maybe you’ll get a little shut-eye as well!
