Night light

Can't sleep? Instead of just lying look for a light in the darkness.

For several years, while I was praying for healing of debilitating asthma, I found myself awake night after night. Seldom did I have a normal rest.

The night began to represent fear, loneliness, mental darkness, and general unease. At first, I spent those long restless hours trying to get comfortable, hoping I could have at least a little sleep before morning, when my young children would wake up.

Sometimes I thought I'd never have a normal night again. A return to health seemed completely out of reach.
