It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late,
to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
The economy is in extreme trouble
Wars and rumors of wars are all around us
401 k's are at risk
bird flu epidemic hovers
Depression on the rise and those on drugs to manage it depressed more than ever
Americas work force is tired and addicted to caffine or worse
Up early to beat the rat race
up late to watch the Late Night Show
(add your own personal fear or worry here)
Vanity, vanity all is vanity!
You can rise early all you want to try to beat the rat race, and stay up late to get in on the latest worldy gossip or try to veg before you lie in bed tossing and turning trying to sleep after a long day at the office. Counting sheep doesn't work, it only annoys you as they baaaaa.
You are tired, annoyed, exhasuted and grumpy to say the least.
Plumeting investments bring fear to your thoughts of retiring early in the Bahamas.
Worry to your hearts content, but it won't change one bit, it won't change your heigth either:)
you could just read your Bible when you get up,
read it when you go to bed (that is a sure fire way to fall asleep)
Just trust in God, He is in control anyway whether you believe it or not.
Just stop drop and roll into the arms of Jesus and experience the peace that passes all understanding!
Sleep like rain falls from God in heaven. It is by His decree that His children sleep.
The head hits the pillow after walking in the ways of our God, and we are asking for mercy and strength to continue another day should the Lord tarry his return.
Beloved...those that belong to God through Jesus..
Beloved, your rest is in Jesus.
For so He giveth His beloved sleep...
and in the original language that means...sleep.
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
The Angels watch me through the night
and keep me in His blessed sight
May you sleep well in Jesus.
