Once again it has hit me. It's 2:18am and I'm awake. I lie in bed closing my eyes but I can't sleep. In high school I didn't mind it, in college it annoyed me, and when I worked I thought it was going away. And it did for some time. But now that I'm a stay at home mom with two toddlers, it scares me.

I know my lack of sleep affects how I treat my kids the next day. And lately since I've been having insomnia I find myself praying...begging for grace to love my family because I could be very short tempered. It's very humbling though because I know I'm so dependent on His grace to help me love and serve my family. So I guess insomnia is not too. As when I think about it that way. Because when at the end of the day I look back and see how I was able to serve and truly love them the way Christ calls me too...then I know all glory goes to Him because it wasn't me at all that enabled me to do that.

We must hate sin as much as God hates sin (killing His own Son).  So we must make those radical decisions to kill sin!!
