People aren't sleeping because they're worried.
I was perusing through Instagram trying to distract myself from my issues when I found this post
And boy did it hit me. Helped a few other people too! And I think it's because so many of us are worried and struggling and using precious resting time to figure it out when it was never our job to in the first place!
1 Peter 5:7 Casting the whole of your care, all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
You know he never sleeps? He watches you all night.
Psalm 121:3-4 He won’t let you stumble,your Guardian God won’t fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep.

Let go of all the worries and issues and struggles. He's got it under control. Now, think about good things. Read this fantastic assurance we're given in Philippians (I know it's long but it's sooo good!
Philippians 4:6, 8 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
Let God's assurance give you some beauty rest as you become more beautifully and brightly barefaced
