Viva la Insomnia

I can't sleep. I have Coldplay's Viva la Vida stuck in my head. I don't know why except maybe that it is serving as a soundtrack to the ka-jillion things swirling in my mind and weighing heavy on my heart. I started to list them out because sometimes blogging helps me make sense of things, but then it occurred to me that my sleeplessness would be better spent praying than blogging; waiting on the Lord instead of searching for clever or wise words; and listening for His voice rather than making my own voice heard.

That was me a few weeks ago-I just remember it is all in God's hands-the good and the bad!
Just praying and asking others to pray made a world of difference for my peace of mind.
Nothing has changed-the stress of my husbands automotive (self-employed) job is still there-but we are trusting that God will either teach us something great, develop us as better people or deliver us from this stress...
Blessings to you today!

Nights like that are hard. Good choice with praying - I pray your burdens are lighter today!

I hate insomnia and that "can't turn my brain off feeling." Prayer is the best medicine of all for that. Hope you are feeling better today.
