Thanks for all your prayers and encouragements. Lord willing the ability to sleep will continue, but if not pray that I will praise Him just the same.

God is good, even when I don't get any sleep, but I feel so blessed this morning after crashing at midnight last night and sleeping until my alarm went off. I pray that I praise God whatever sleep I get or don't get and that I continue to learn the lesson of trust. I am thankful that He's put me in this situation where I don't have parents or roommates to rely on and I have to cling to Him. It's very difficult sometimes, but if insomnia is my biggest struggle then I think God's being pretty easy on me. I look back on Paul's struggles and kind of feel like a wimp! He was beaten, ship wrecked, thrown in jail, and insulted and through all of this God used him in a mighty way to advance His kingdom. I can only pray that God will use me in such a way, even if that means that I have to face more sever trials in order to do so.
