I am hearing of more and more people who are battling insomnia. They just can’t sleep through the night. I go through seasons of insomnia, when I am taking a round of steroids, and during the weeks that I am weaning off of them.
I have learned to accept those hours in the middle of the night and I use that time to write, or I read. I stay away from the TV or computer because it wakes me up even more. God knows we will all have those times of sleeplessness, but He promises to send us a song in the night.
Isaiah 30:29, “You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept, and gladness of heart as when one marches in procession with a flute to go to the temple on the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.”
No matter what wakes us up, what worries us, or what we are dreading, God will send a song that feels like: Christmas dinner or a July 4th parade. We need to turn to Him and rest in Him, because our strength will be found in quietness, in trusting, and putting our confidence in Him, (Isaiah 30:15).
