Let me get something straight: I always fall asleep right away. So when I stay awake for hours at night, unable to get to sleep...actually, that doesn't ever happen.
But on the night I'd confessed my spiritual OCD to my friends, I couldn't get to sleep. 3:00 a.m. came, and there I was, lying awake!
Finally, it got through my thick skull that perhaps God was trying to tell me something. After all, I never took this long to get to sleep. Maybe God was keeping me awake for a purpose...
So I got out of bed and went into a room where I would be alone. I got out my Bible. If God was trying to listen to me, then by all means, I was all ears. I had no idea what was coming next.
