It's 3:00 AM and you can't sleep? Read this!

3AM is an uplifting song for anyone clinging to faith in their darkest moment and trying to ignore the negative thoughts or worry that keeps you up at night. When I was writing this song, all I could think about was a dark period in my life where I couldn't see the light of day. I was so broken and battered inside, even contemplating suicide. It's one thing to lose sight of what's good but to completely shut down and almost give up on life is an awful predicament to be in. I couldn't hold on to faith that I felt was shaken. I was feeling alone, miserable and bitter about all that happened and what could've happened but didn't happen in my life. I was worrying as if I had missed the chance to get it right but I was so wrong about that. God's timing is everything! It took prayer, counseling and God's strength to provide a ray of hope that could only be considered a divine intervention. God stepped in and saved me! God wanted me to realize that my life was just beginning and far from over. But I'm human! I'm not made of steel and life is tough on us all. We all experience circumstances that can lead to turmoil and despair. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) And God wants us to bring our burdens to Him because He cares so much for us. The devil is a liar and the negative thoughts you have about yourself are false! You are amazing, loved, oh so special and never alone. I know that low feeling but it doesn't mean that life is over. God hears your cries and fervent prayers no matter what time of day or night. So call on Jesus! He answers prayer and is our ultimate help who will never leave us nor forsake us...ever! (Deuteronomy 31:6) 3AM is a reminder that God is always with us even when we doubt, worry and are afraid. 
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." 
~ Isaiah 41:10
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11
