Sabbath Moments - Blessed Insomniac
Sabbath Moments is a weekly meme hosted by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace. These are moments that we spend resting in God, just being rather than doing. I haven't posted much this week because I haven't gotten any sleep. I decided to take it easy rather than try to write something that would just come out all garbled anyway. My fellow insomniacs can probably relate :) Still, as miserable as insomnia can make one feel it can also be a blessing in disguise, as it was for me this week. After four days in a row with minimal sleep I was pretty much a wreck. Until last night, that is. Last night I had one of the most amazing spiritual experiences of my life. I cannot even put it into words, yet. If I had been asleep it probably wouldn't have happened. This helped me put the insomnia into perspective. God showed me what we truly are and other things about humanity too. What I see and what God sees are totally different. I understood the dignity of a human soul intellectually before this but I hadn't experienced [at least not to this degree] this great dignity bestowed on us by a loving God. Sure, I knew we were children of God but nothing like He showed me! I hope to be able to find words this week to better describe these loving insights given to me by a gracious God.
God is good.
