Just can’t sleep | Randomness

Just can’t get to sleep. Not quite used to this and no matter how hard I try I can’t keep my eyes shut. I am usually the type who is out before my head reaches the pillow. I used to be the type who could drink half a pot of coffee and go right to sleep without any sleepless side-affects! But 6ish months ago I stopped drinking my daily 6 cups of joe…. So, tonight I had a cup and I feel like I could run a marathon! :) Great feeling but not at 2am….

Anywho, I ran across this verse yesterday and was so encouraged by it I just had to share with you all!

“You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.”

James 5:8

Beautiful isn’t it?!! The Lord’s coming is very near and I am extremely excited but until He returns(or I go, whichever comes first) I must be patient(not always the easiest thing) and stand firm. And it is my desire and prayer that I finish this race serving God acceptably with reverence and godly fear(Hebrews 12:28-29)! How about you? =)

Be encouraged because God is good!

P.S. One of my favorite flowers have made it’s first appearance in my back yard!! :)

“Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:  For our God is a consuming fire.”
Hebrews 12:28-29

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. I know what you mean about the 2 AM feeling. Just getting over a couple of weeks of being up for the hours of 2-4. I should have gotten up and done something instead of tossing around and punching pillows. But I always HOPED I’d fall asleep. Oh well. Love the pics of the Queen Anne’s Lace. It’s blooming like crazy along the roadside here. I’ll be posting pics soon.

    1. The only problem with getting out of bed is there isn’t much to do that late/early! :) . I look forward to seeing your Queen Ann’s Lace pictures!

Leave a comment and make my day! ;)
