In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.Psalm 4:8 (NLT)
I’ve never been a great one when it comes to sleep. Since I was a child I would lie awake for hours staring at the ceiling, making up stories, quietly playing with my toys. Then as I got older, I would fill the sleep (less) hours with cleaning, books, and movies.
My mind never stops… it’s constant. There’s always something floating, running, jumping around in there. And it’s the constant processing, my thoughts running down rabbit holes, that steal my slumber the most.
