right out, no sleeping for this girl last night

I can make things up in my head.

Oh you should have heard my head last night. Round and round it went, this, that, and the other thing! I had scenarios dancing in this head you would not even believe it if I voiced it.

 Last night this girl was up almost the whole night thinking and worrying, praying about what????Nothing I could do about at two in the morning or ever for that matter, I’ll tell you that!

 I went back to bed about four and fell asleep pretty sound until my internal clock chimed at ten to five and I got up and read the word.

 I felt like the Lord said to me, ” Ok, you can do this alone or you can do this with Me. More sleepless nights and have no outcome (but lack of sleep) or you can relinquish your ‘control’ and trust that what you have entrusted to Me I can take care of better than you. So, take my hand and we will do this together!” I love how He solves things, it shut my head right down

  After reading Jesus Calling today it confirmed that what He was speaking to my heart…

‘you must change your grasping controlling stance to one of openness and trust….the most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust Me no matter what. I am an ever- present help in trouble.

and Oh Yes!

mountain mama - amen…

just today i told the kids, “we turned it over to the Lord…it does not do a bit of good to worry…so let’s not, okay?”

easier said than done sometimes though 🙂

Shauna - What’s the trouble Sis? I hate those kind of nights… I really do. I think we need to get a right view of God in those moments.

Jenay - There’s a verse that I just read that I don’t like but it hit me that as a Christian I won’t sleep like others…1 Thessalonians 5:6…I know this is probably not theologically correct…but for me it spoke to me…everything else I do is effected by my dying to myself to become a follower of Jesus so why wouldn’t He also want my sleep time to talk to Him and pray. I think He wants it ALL and He will have to sustain us in our sleep deprivation. 😉
