Winning the Battle for the Night by Faith Blatchford #Review
Win the Battle for Sleep: God's Plan for Rest, Rejuvenation, and Revelation
In our fast-paced world, we see sleep as "wasted time," or else we lie awake as anxiety, fear, or distractions run through our minds. That was never God's intent for the night. Without realizing it, we've handed this sacred time over to the enemy.
With warmth, compassion, and keen biblical insight, counselor and speaker Faith Blatchford reveals that it's during this precious time that God imparts everything necessary for us to be equipped for the day. Without peaceful sleep at night, we are robbed mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually of the resources we need.
God created the night and the dark--and he called it good. He dwells in it. The dark does not belong to the devil, so don't let the enemy steal it from you. Here are the tools you need to take back your night, to encounter the God of rest, and to sleep peacefully the whole night through.
Includes a chapter on how to help your children overcome nightmares and fear of the dark.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- The author clearly sees sleep in a way that most people are not sure of, but while reading this book I felt that if you open your mind, anything can be possible. The whole outcome of personal ranking for this book will depend on you as a reader and if you believe in topics of the faith based material, or if you choose to pass over it. I think that for me, I was interested and so I was able to read this book at a face pace and recommend it to older ages.
