Causes of Insomnia|Take Advice from the Bible

Do you aim to compete with others for the sake of survival? Everyone can be under great chronic stress if people seek to be superior to others. People are anxious about their future. People fear losing their face and dignity. People fear losing someone or something valuable in life.

People hate regrets. The higher position you are, the greater responsibilities you take. The more desires you harbour, the more worries you bear. Our faith affects the path we take. Our faith decides our inner peace. Steadfast faith in God saves us from anxiety and fear.

 

Believe in God’s justice and God’s wrath 

“Those who have little faith in God, their hope will perish too” ((Job 8:13-15).

Bible Verses Elucidate the Causes of Insomnia

  • “Even at night his mind does not rest. This too is vanity”(Ecclesiastes 2:23).

  • “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or empty pride, but in humility consider others more important than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests but also to the interests of others” that “We who are strong ought to bear with the shortcomings of the weak and not to please ourselves” (Philippians 2:4; Romans 15:1).

 

  • “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things”(17. Colossians 3:2).

  • “Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today”(Matthew 6:34).

 

What Causes Insomnia? 

Innumerable persons are struggling with insomnia. Most people have a tight schedule all year round. They go to bed extremely late until sleep deprivation become a routine. People are being impatient that they seek early success or overnight success. People are being greedy for life. Instead of supporting each other, people seek wealth accumulation and personal ambitions and personal glories.  People are desperate to earn respect from the world. People want to be respected in social gatherings rather than being badly judged.

 

  • “Guard your heart for everything you do flows from it” (Proverbs 4:23).

  • “Keep no record of wrongs”  (1: Corinthians 13: 4-5).

Causes of Anxiety

Anxiety,  Fear & Vanity 

As you suffer from unshakable anxiety, pray and seek help from God. God will  guard your thoughts and emotions. If you do not receive help from God, check if you commit the 7 deadly sins on a daily basis and repent. Be aware of the seven deadly sins. God is waiting patiently for people to come to “repentance” (Psalm 103:8; 2 Peter 3:8-9). 

If you believe in luck, work hard to earn God’s approval and blessings.  God arranges everything and makes everything possible. Miracles are everywhere. I was the one who questioned about it. But, I witnessed it  from my life experiences and learned to believe that God will reward those who discipline themselves well. Again, be aware of the seven deadly sins and seven heavenly virtues.  Abide by the preachings in the Bible and stop worrying.  Be humble, tender and compassionate. 

 

Q: It is necessary to say amen at the end of the prayers?

Here’s an example of Jesus’s praying in the bible: John 17:9, 11b “I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.”Jesus did not say Amen at the end of his prayer.

 

Amen means ‘so be it.’  Jesus say amen around 50 times in the beginning of a sentence in the Bible. In the bible, Jesus uses the phrase, “Amen, I say to you…”

# Inspiration 1: According to the Bible’s instruction, “The tongue has the power of life and death” (Proverbs 18:21). By misjudging people, we’re doing them injustice. That’s partly why the Bible says “For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you” (Matthew 7:1-2). 

Malicious words potentially lead to violence, bullying and persecution. Thus, the Bible says those who do “not keep a tight rein on their tongues…their religion is worthless” for “whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit” (Proverbs 20:19, 1 Peter 3:10 ESV).

God expects us to “Strive for peace with everyone” and be  “impartial” (Hebrews 12:14; James 3:17-18). Pride is the capital sin among the seven deadly sins. [1] Generally, pride and social prejudice lead to conflicts, persecution, bullying, discrimination and violence in the world, which paves the way for countless tragedies on earth. The Bible stresses the fact that “Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Assuredly, he will not be unpunished” (Proverbs 16:5). [2]

# Inspiration 2.  “God promises to make something good out of the storm that brings devastation to your life” (Roman 8: 28).

 

According to the Bible, all that we know now “is partial and incomplete” but “we will see everything with perfect clarity” (1 Corinthians 13:12, NLT). God’s mighty power, “wisdom and knowledge” are unfathomable and “inscrutable,” which is incapable of being interpreted or analyzed (Romans 11:33). God sees things differently from us. 

God expects us to “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). Negative emotions blind our visions to see the blessings behind a traumatic event.  God expects us to “Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4).

 

The Bible says, “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:17-18).“Special Providence” refers to God’s mighty intervention in the life of people (Exodus 7:3; 9:12; 10:1, 20, 27; 11:10; 14:8). The Bible says, “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”( Romans 8:28). 

 

# Inspiration 3: God is waiting patiently for people to come to “repentance” (Psalm 103:8; 2 Peter 3:8-9). 

The seven deadly sins in the Bible are common weaknesses of human beings, including pride, anger, lust, laziness, love of money, binge eating and jealousy. The Bible says, “if you do wrong, be afraid” (Romans 13:4). It’s comforting to know that “love covers over a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).

 

# Inspiration 4:  As to luck, “this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). 

It is assured that “Every good gift and every perfect gift are from above,” such as inner peace (James 1:17; NLT, Jeremiah 29:11).  Inner peace from God “surpasses all understanding,” which “will guard your hearts” in the hard times (Philippians 4:7).

# Inspiration 5: The Bible says, “Keep no record of wrongs” and “leave room for God’s wrath(1 Peter 4:8, Romans 12:18-19).

Anger destroys compassion and love in a heartbeat and brings out the worst version of ourselves. Satan utilizes human weakness and Satan loves the smell of negative emotions. According to the Bible, we are living in a “dark world,” (Ephesians 6:12-16). Seek approval and rewards from God. Do not seek rewards from the world.

 

# Inspiration 6: The righteous will be “grieved by various trials,” because the “genuineness” of faith will be tested before the chosen ones receive the admission tickets to heaven (1 Peter 1:3-9).  As the righteous “persevere” at righteousness “under trial,”[1]  they will earn the approval from God and “receive the crown of life,” namely eternal life (James 1:12).[2]

 

That’s why the Bible says, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you” (I Peter 4:12). The Bible says, “we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope…Because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts” (Roman 5:3-5).

 

That fully explains why the Bible says, “You need to persevere” at God’s will in all circumstance and “when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised” (Hebrews 10:36). The Bible says, “by testing you may discern what is the will of God” (Romans 12:2).

 

# Inspiration 7: Be aware of little faith, namely wavering faith. Those who have little faith and trust in God, their hope will perish too (Job 8:13-15).[1]

 

Our every move demonstrates what we truly believe. How we utilize our time demonstrates what we truly believe. Faith is “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). 

 

Fear of the unknown usually leads to anxiety, pessimism or even loss of hope. People can’t stop worrying. People dread losing something or someone valuable. People dread of uncertainty.  Those who do not have faith in God are doomed to suffer from unshakable anxiety.

 

# Inspiration 8: According to the Bible, all that we know now “is partial and incomplete” but “we will see everything with perfect clarity” (1 Corinthians 13:12, NLT).

 

That’s why the Bible says, “do not rely on our “own understanding “and “Do not be wise in your own eyes” (Proverbs 3:5-6, Proverbs 3:7-8).

Proverbs 27:1
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.

James 4:13-17
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Ephesians 5:15-17
Be very careful, then, how you live.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people only witness unconditional love during hard times. Unconditional love is found in imperfections. Imperfections teach us to be humble and compassionate. If you believe in miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. Earn approval and luck from God. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” for “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we grow. There's a strong connection between unhealed trauma and dysfunctional immune system. If you rush yourself to become a better me, that might be a sign of unhealed trauma. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Negative emotions and chronic stress sabotage people's immune system. 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. People suffer from suppressed anger and pessimism. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Stop recording the faults of others and practice compassion mediation instead. 我喜歡文字,大概是因為我喜歡永恆的東西,而世上多數的東西都不是。潛意識24小時不睡覺,中醫主張生悶氣、恐懼、悲觀和過食是疾病的根源。 不是所有人都需要心靈雞湯,如果你絕對正向而強壯。自認不是勵志派,是寫實警世的定位,但我肯定有邏輯基礎的正向思考。很多人可能想不到很多老毛病是「肩頸僵硬」引起的,因為肩頸僵硬會「引發自律神經失調」,而自律神經失調會引發一大串的毛病,像是失眠.焦慮.消化不良和低體溫等等!久坐者即便沒有駝背也可能有「坐姿前傾」的問題。健康建議:天芢無糖抹茶+牛奶+ 無糖豆漿+鹼性飲食(可提高基礎體溫,就提高免疫力)+淋巴按摩+ 頭皮耳朵穴道按摩+甩手操或拍打功+低耗氧的運動。糖尿病可逆轉!「提高肌肉量」是控制血糖的的關鍵!國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者「全面禁糖」可望痊癒!如果遭受暴力(家暴)、性侵或性騷擾或任何身心虐待,撥打113保護專線,24小時全年無休。生活、學業、工作等等情緒困擾,撥打安心專線「1925」。佛教主張因果論,而 Bible主張人生必有難題(包括選民),主張磨練都是鍛鍊心智,但好好表現,災難的背後會有禮物(禍福相依,壞消息可能是跳板,好消息處理不當就變成頭痛點)。Bible主張人生只有一回,沒有前世今生。人生有很多上蒼的隨堂考,氣生災,如果你相信成功需要幸運,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣。Bible強調自律、謙卑、口舌之禍及傲慢之惡。佛教主張因果論,而 Bible主張人生必有難題(包括選民),主張磨練都是鍛鍊心智,但好好表現,災難的背後會有禮物(禍福相依,壞消息可能是跳板,好消息處理不當就變成頭痛點)。Bible強調自律、謙卑、口舌之禍及傲慢之惡。Bible主張人生只有一回,沒有前世今生。人生有很多上蒼的隨堂考,氣生災,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣。寫信給站長: jpsiawase@gmail.com
