Forty seven percent of Canadians have trouble falling asleep and 38% have trouble staying asleep. 66% believe that stress lies at the bottom of these sleep issues. We all realize that sleeplessness can have physical causes, but there is no doubt that our frantic lifestyle also contributes to the problem. King David, the Psalmist once lamented, “They have increased who trouble me…there is no help.” But then after some reflections, David was inspired to write, “I cried to the Lord with my voice and He heard me and I lay down and slept. I awoke for the Lord sustained me.” Later he added, “ I will both lie down in peace and sleep for You alone, O Lord make me dwell in safety.” While our troubles may be real, and we can see no way out, remember please, that as David learned, God is greater than all our problems. And He is ready to help us when we acknowledge our spiritual bankruptcy and turn to Him.
