It has been a long week already, but full of small blessings and reminders of God's provision.
We are a month into the new year and this year has definitely not been anything like I expected yet. The last month has been crazy. And stressful in a lot of ways. I feel like I've been going full-speed with no end in sight.
And to make things even crazier, my sleep schedule has been ridiculous the past few weeks. I have always had difficulty sleeping. Even when I was little I would have trouble falling asleep. Now I don't have trouble falling asleep, but I do have a hard time falling back to sleep when I wake up. And I cannot sleep in past about 7:00.
At the beginning of January my internal alarm moved itself up to 5:45 every morning for a week and then 4:45. And I thought that was bad.
Until every night for the last 2 weeks I have woken up at 2:30 wide awake. And every night but 1 I have laid awake for at least a couple hours. Usually I fall back asleep about an hour before my alarm goes off. So I definitely did not take it for granted that I slept from the time I went to bed last night until my alarm went off this morning.
I am grateful for the Lord's provision in rest and reminders that He is in control even when I feel completely out of control.
