Do you or someone you know struggle with insomnia? There is help for our restless bodies and souls.
As abuse survivors, we know what it's like to struggle with sleeplessness.
From difficulty falling asleep to being rudely awakened by terrible nightmares and night sweats, we know how a lack of sleep can impact our lives.
That's why we wanted to share some tips that have helped us get better sleep.
It may sound too simplistic, but honestly, we've found that praying right before bedtime, helps to calm our mind and fall asleep.
And, if we wake up in the middle of the night, prayer often helps us fall back asleep. Even if it's several minutes later.
Spending time with God through prayer during dark midnight hours has added peace in the midst of insomnia.
#2- Listening to God's Word
From listening to a sermon from our pastor, a Christian podcast, or listening to the Word via a Bible APP, the Bible helps to ease anxiousness, worry, or fearful thoughts and helps us to fall back asleep.
#3- Reading God's Word
A Christian blog, book, or the Bible, we've realized that intentionally focusing our heart and mind on God's Word often helps us fall asleep.
Also, there are natural, non-addictive sleep aides that we use from time to time.
And other nighttime routines we have to help give our bodies the best chance to experience sound sleep.
Yet, we've learned that often what robs us of sleep are weary souls.
We are so grateful for the Lord's comfort during our time of restlessness and afflictions in life.
For He has truly demonstrated His compassion and care toward us.
And it's this experience of God's comfort that fuels our desire to comfort others with the same comfort that we have received.
