Grace & Truth for When You Have Trouble Falling Asleep

Do you have trouble falling asleep at night?

Would you be surprised to learn that this is a common struggle among women? In 2002 the National Sleep Foundation did a survey that found 63% of women suffered from insomnia.

That’s a lot of tired ladies.

So why do you think that is?

What keeps us up at night?

I have my own theories.

My Sleepless Story

I used to have trouble sleeping. Like, a lot of trouble. But over the past couple of years, I have been able to overcome.

The main thing that kept me awake was replaying conversations from the day over and over again in my head. Beating myself up for things I thought I did wrong or said wrong. Areas where I failed.

When you have trouble falling asleep...

If I didn’t finish my to do list, I would stress over it.

Sometimes I would go back even further. Like that time in high school when I failed to share the gospel when one of my friends specifically asked me how to become a Christian. But I was in a hurry and didn’t take the time to stop and to lead Him to Jesus.

Other times I would stress about the future. Things that were yet to come. How were we going to afford that car repair? I needed to have a conversation I didn’t want to have.

Whatever it was it would eat me up and keep me awake.

Even just remembering makes my stomach churn.

    1. I’m so sorry, Jennifer. We are having some technical difficulties this week. We have contacted the link up server and they are aware of the problem and are working to fix it. In the meantime, You might try to link up from Aimee’s blog. For some reason, Maree and I were both able to add our links from her site when we couldn’t add them from our own.
