I can fall to sleep fairly quickly. For years once I was unsleep, you would have a hard time waking me up. But sometimes, in recent years, I have woke up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep. What to do? Paul Tripp writes,
We all struggle to sleep at night, and to be fair, life in a fallen world is harsh and unpredictable. There are many outside factors that make life difficult and provide reason for restless nights.
But I’m deeply persuaded that in the midst of trial, we often abandon our theology. We quit believing that the Bible has the answers for life and we try to take the reins. With the weight of the world now on our self-appointed shoulders, we struggle to get a good night of sleep.
I highly commend this article on Sleepless Nights which provides four practical actions steps that are part of the preaching the gospel to yourself on those sleepless nights.
