I have never been one to struggle with sleep. In fact it’s always been a swift journey through the 5 stages with me almost entirely wedged in the sweet spot of deep sleep and REM.
But it’s been a game of hide and seek lately and I find myself starring into the dark counting backwards from 100 to 1. Now I know there are folks that swear by the count system, but not once has it worked for me. After attempting multiple hacks, I have found that the least disruptive, and most helpful option for me is to plug in my earphones and flood my senses with worship.
I also came across a gem on Spotify recently, and it has been very helpful. You may have heard of it before. It’s called Abide Bible & Sleep Meditation. I imagine that there are many Sleep Meditation apps out there. However, as one who is particular about what I ingest, I gravitate toward scripturally pillared content. So far, the voices have been soothing. I also enjoy the pitta-patta sound of rainfall in the background, as well as the heavy dose of God’s word.
Last night I listened to Tyler talk about ‘His Glory’. It must have been lights out fairly quickly because I woke up this morning trying to piece things together.
Anyways I thought I would share in case someone out there is searching for options.
