Who else has nights where you lay in bed wide awake? Morning is quickly approaching and the upcoming responsibilities are definitely not going away. Toss, turn, flip and flop; nothing is helping you sleep, so stop. Be still, don’t move, sleep is near, well not really; each and every sound magnifies in you ears. There is a solution that works for me, and adds some impact, as you will see.
There are two things I do when I can’t sleep. It usually ends with a few zzzz’s, but if not, i either grow spiritually from listening to the Lord or cover everyone and anyone that the Lord puts in my mind. I figure if it’s that spiritual war keeping me awake, what would be better than jumping in and joining the winning side!
1. The first thing you can do: Pop in your headphones and listen to the audio Bible
My favorite app is the Bible app. It offers a variety of different audio versions and languages too. It’s a free app full of devotions for all ages. If you’re not sure where to start, just go to the beginning. I know you will not be disappointed! Falling asleep listening to the Lord’s words- there is no better way to be put to sleep!
2. The second thing: Pray! Pray for everyone that comes to mind! Once you realize that sleep is far away, start by asking the Lord who needs prayer cover. Some nights specific people will boldly come to mind and You will know, without a doubt, they need to be lifted up. If there isn’t a specific person you are thinking about, start with family and friends. You will be amazed who comes to mind when you start to pray.
