Several weeks ago I wrote that I would be taking time off from the blog as I would be seeking healing for my prolonged battle with insomnia which had reached a critical point.
I’ve been in Texas (where I grew up and where my parents still live) for the last three weeks with back-to-back medical appointments, Christian counseling sessions, moments of prayer, etc. During this time my insomnia has reached an even more extreme point, and in the past two-and-a-half weeks I’ve only been able to sleep 0-2 hours per night with my heart and head constantly racing and seemingly tormented. I am at the weakest point I’ve perhaps ever been.
During my time in Texas many faithful believers have received me in their home and fasted and prayed for my healing in Christ from these insomnia attacks which are intensifying, and I continue onward with great hope that that victory will be walked out in my life. I have been seeking the Lord daily — in my absolute weakness and even in emotional discouragement/confusion — in His Word and in prayer, and although I haven’t yet experienced any physical healing/improvement, I feel that the Lord is walking with me and taking me through many moments of hidden breakthrough and renewed faith as He’s teaching me things in my extremely weakened state that I might not have otherwise learned.
My flight home is scheduled to return to Honduras next Friday (September 22), so I humbly ask that you would pray that I might get some measure of sleep before I re-enter our daily life and service that involves much devotion, long days and dogged faith. Darwin and our faithful team of Honduran laborers have been holding down the fort and carrying on the mighty purpose God has entrusted us in my absence, and I very much look forward to returning to them soon. They have all been doing a phenomenal job.
Thank you to all of you who have been praying for me, and thank you to those I’ve seen in person and who have been so generous to receive me their home, pray for me, share meals, etc. God bless you.
To God be the glory. Amen!
