Lagging Behind  

Posted by Tiffany

Way behind. It's been like a month since my last post?? *shakes head* Way too long for me to be away from my writing...I do have quite a few ideas for posts floating around in my head, but it's been crazy finding the time to write them! SO...instead of working on those posts, I'm going to post on something random...

Staying up bad for you. And why? Because it's not normal, is why. The majority of the population goes to bed at some insane hour of 8-9 o'clock at night, and then gets up at 6 in the morning?!? Well, just because most people do it, doesn't mean I should and it doesn't make it right either. Ok, on to the next argument...the Bible has so much to say on getting up early and how good it is for you. Let's take a look at some of them, shall we?

Psalm 127:2
It is vain for you to rise up early...

Proverbs 1:28
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

Isaiah 5:11
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning...

Isaiah 37:36
Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

Zephaniah 3:7
I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.

As you can see, waking up early can be detrimental to our health...and can also corrupt us. No wonder this nation is in shambles; people just aren't seeing the light (no pun intended). There are such things as nocturnal animals, why not people? And who says that getting up at 2 in the afternoon is late? For those of you who may not know, that is early in the night owl's dictionary. You just have different definitions for your "early." So for all those people out there who are night owls, kudos, for going against the flow and being unique.

P.S. Yes, it really is 3:37am...
