I Haven't Been Sleeping Very Well Recently

I haven't been sleeping very well recently. I've suffered from insomina for, well my whole life. When I was little my mom and dad were so desperate to sleep through the night that they gave me "nigh nigh medicine" when I was two. I used to judge them for this, and then I had children. I totally get it now! In the past I didn't know why I wasn't sleeping, but I'm more than aware of why I'm not sleeping lately.

I heard a sermon once that said you're either in the begining of a storm, in the middle of a storm, or coming out of a storm. That was four years ago and it has stayed with me because really it is very true. Well right now I'm in the middle of a storm. Some days it feels like a hurricane and others a sprinkle, but it's a storm all the same.

The only good thing that is coming from this storm and insomnia is that I've been spending a lot of time talking to God and spending time in his word. It's keeping me from being defeated and throwing in the towel. I keep reminding myself that this too shall pass. I'm trying to count my blessings and not dwell on this storm. Easier said than done right?

 



My little blessings!

And my biggest blessing.

  1. Prayers for you in your storm - pray that God comforts you and brings you peace through His word and that you draw closer to Him. Praying for sleep too! That's important when we are in storms : )

  2. Nothing keeps me sane through a storm like taking time for HIM. I hope you continue to weather the storm and find peace through it all.

    1. I read a daily devotional book and today's spoke right into what I'm going through. It reminded me that I'm not alone.
