Ok so first of all it is 6am and I am wide awake, not a good start considering yesterday has yet to end for me. In other words I have yet to go to bed. One of the worst things that I deal with on a nightly basis is insomnia. There is no feeling like the one that I get when I lay down tired and weary and then proceed to feel like my world is coming to an end. I have been dealing with nightly anxiety attacks and let me tell you that feeling like I am having a heart attack every night is no picnic. The feeling is terrifying. So how do I find a blessing out of this? Pretty simple tonight actually, see my fiance has been doing a lot of fussing at me because I need to read and study my bible more. Although he would assuredly argue with my timing on taking his advice I have done just that. So what did I find you ask? I found
1 Peter 5:7
cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you
cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall
come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls
Sounds simple enough right? But (yes I just started my sentence with but. My blog my rules ) what does that all entail? Can I really just give it to him and expect him to deal with it? The answer, yes you can. Need proof?
Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus
So there we have it folks! An easy enough formula no medication needed.
Bring Your Case To God
While Being Thankful
That is it. That my dear readers is all that is required. So with that knowledge pray with me.
I come before you to ask you to calm my heart and mind so that I might rest. Lord I ask that you touch my readers hearts and help me to show them the love that only you can offer. Lord you truly are the best medicine and with my trust in you I know that peace can be mine. Lord I want to change lives for you and I want those that are struggling to know that you are there and only a prayer away. Lord I thank you for this sleepless night because it has brought me to your word and to my knees to praise you and your splendor. Lord I ask that you guide my words and my heart and let me speak of your love through my fingers. I ask that you bless each and every person that this post reaches and help me to lead them to the greatest peace and the grandest prize you have to offer, Salvation and an Everlasting Life in you. You are the God of Wonders and the Prince of Peace and to you I owe all my praise,
In Jesus name I pray. Amen
I hope that this post finds you well rested and with a peaceful heart but if not please know that I am only a click away but even better Jesus is only a prayer away. All you have to do is let him in.
