Waking up at 2:30 in the morning and not being able to go back to sleep easily, is frustrating. Every problem that I have came to mind and was rehashed over and over again. I prayed every prayer I could think of, quoted scripture, and begged God to help me go back to sleep. Eventually, I did, but morning came all too quickly and the lack of sleep made me sluggish and tired. We need our rest to function properly, but sleeping in the sense that you are not giving respect and honor to the Lord by being watchful, will not serve you well. Our time here on earth is short and we need to be vigilant and stay awake and aware. Seeing what is going on all over the world, we can be sure our Savior will be returning soon to gather the crops. Weeds are growing rapidly and the separation of the wheat from the tares seems imminent. Be on your guard, hold on to what you have, He is coming soon.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
