Redeemed from Sleepless Nights

For the past 2 months, I suffered from insomnia. I would wake up in the middle of the night at 3.30am and could not go back to sleep.

It was especially stressful for me as I was looking after my daughter. My husband had to work in the office so I was left on my own to take care of my daughter and the house.

I had to take pills in order to fall asleep and was fearful that once I stopped taking them, the insomnia would return. One night, I felt led to stop taking the pills, and had peace as I did so.

I read Pastor Prince’s Eat Your Way to Life and Health and partook of the holy Communion before I went to sleep, declaring that sleep is a gift from God, and I am redeemed from insomnia. I kept meditating on Psalm 127:2, where it says that the Lord gives His beloved sleep.

After doing this for a few nights, I woke up one morning pleasantly surprised. I slept more hours and the quality of sleep was good, even without the sleeping pills! Subsequently, I had more good quality sleep. Thank you, Jesus, for redeeming me from sleepless nights!
