Down days

I’m struggling again with insomnia lately…in the middle of the night, when I should be in deep, restful slumber, I am instead full of restless energy, wide awake, mind racing, trying to remember the verses and prayers I had memorized for these times, but to no avail.  Finally, dozing off in the middle of my Hail Mary, only to wake again twenty minutes later and start all over again.

As a result, I have zero energy for the things I really wanted to get done today.  A mid-morning nap only made me more tired, and I have developed a brain fog that is not conducive to anything requiring thought processes more than surface deep.

I will offer this to God, little and worthless as it seems to be by my own standards, since it’s all I have, I pray He will be pleased with the offering, and use it in the ways only He can, hopefully multiplying it and feeding others with it.

When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

  1. so sorry to hear about your troubles sleeping. That can be so discouraging. I know all about it, unfortunately. It will pass . . . keep on praying and I will join my prayers with yours tonight for a restful night.
