Let’s count to three at bedtime: “One, two, three.” After finish counting, a fortunate group of people would have fallen asleep right away. As for many insomniacs, they have just commenced their long and painful trip of counting sheep.
Although I am not an insomnia sufferer, I have surely experienced the agony of sleepless nights before. Restless nights are terrible and painful! After tossing and turning for an hour or so, I would usually quietly sneak out of bed, hoping I wouldn’t wake up my wife. Then I would spend time reading or doing my devotion, hoping the additional reading and praying would wear me down, and eventually put my sleepless night to an end!
As adults, we are burdened with many problems and difficulties that could stealthily harm our emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing. If we haven’t dealt with it properly, we would end up with many sleepless nights!
Jesus Christ reminds His followers in saying, 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. (Matthew 6:34 NLT) After following Jesus for many years, Peter has realized a spiritual truth – 7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (1 Peter 5:7 NLT) Without the baggage of worries and cares, I think we wouldn’t have sleepless nights anymore. Before you go to bed tonight, I wish you a good sleep. Goodnight!
