Have you ever had that middle of the night insomnia-attack where a seemingly small issue transforms into an insurmountable crisis?  At 3:00 AM, everything seems to take on a heavier weight than it likely deserves.

In this video, Seth Dahl recounts one of those nights. A wake-boarding accident earlier that day left Seth with pain shooting throughout his entire body. Not knowing how long this pain would last, Seth’s mind carried him to the worst-case scenario.

His mind raced, wondering, “What if I wake up tomorrow and my ankle’s broken? What if I can’t go to work? What if I need to get a cast?”

When the “what if’s” start to spiral out of control, it’s a great time to check in with God to hear if He has something to say. In Seth’s case, this late-night moment of panic proved to be a perfect opportunity for God to instill within Seth a message of hope.

God asked Seth to change his “what if’s” from negatives into positives, shifting from worse-case scenarios to best-case scenarios.

“What if I wake up tomorrow and I’m fine? What if I don’t need a cast? What if I can go to work?” Seth considered.

What happened next for Seth in his recovery? Check out this video to find out!
