Lately I have been struggling with sleeping problems. I could hardly sleep at night, and most of the time I just could sleep on 4 or 5am in the morning. Not only the time of the sleep, but I woke up at around 3-4pm daily, which is not healthy at all. At my worst days, I could only wake up at 7 or 8pm in the night.
I don’t know what exactly caused this, but most probably it’s because the medicines I took for my mental health problem, which is getting better already. But this sleeping problem really pissed me off, and at times it caused a lot of stress for me. Especially last Sunday, when I only could wake up at 8pm and I couldn’t go to church.
I need a solution quickly, and I already listed some of the methods I am going to try, like going to the doctor and asking for a more suitable medicines, reducing my coffee consumption, and so on.
But I learnt something through this problem. It’s that these problems exist to make us stronger, especially stronger in our relationship with God. It’s because we have problem and we can’t handle it by ourselves that we remembered we need (and have) someone out there who’s always watching over us and ready to help us, which is God.
So in my stressed hours, when darkness is full inside me telling me to stop living because of this problem, I get down on my knees and pray for God to strengthen me. Because I believe He is the main solution to all our problems.
And to you, all of my friends. If you are facing some problems right now, remember that you are being upgraded by God. It is through fire that a steel is made better, and so do us. If you need someone to talk to or some help I can do to you, don’t bother to chat me.
