I’ve been up since 3am. It’s now 5:30am. This prednisone induced insomnia is terrible! I guess the positive of it, is that I use the time to reflect, meditate, and pray! I also read my Daily Bread devotional.
Today’s devotional was all about prayer which was a great reminder to give it “all” to God! It’s something that I’ve started to do back in the beginning of April. Once I started feeling sick, I knew I couldn’t do this alone. I needed a strength that only God can provide. After years of living life my way, it’s been encouraging to have God back on my radar. I tried living life without Him and it was empty. I’m thankful for the spiritual energy He has given me to get through this year because I’ve needed it. I needed to cast all my cares on Him as the stress of life is often too much for me to handle. And I know that all my stress goes right to my gut. Trying my best to give it to Him but old habits are hard to break sometimes.
The insomnia is also my time that I pray for others! My heart cries out to my sister in-law who’s been very ill for too long. Her show of strength, character, and determination really is hard for me to put into words. Her faith has never wavered and she’s never blamed God. Thank you Jenna for being a spiritual blessing to me through your health trials. Your journey (and my health journey too) has brought me closer to God and has made me to depend on Him. I pray for you daily and know that God will give you the strength to fight this! Love you lots.
