Animals sleep as a reward for labor; or they simply sleep because they want to.
God gave humans the gift of sleep as the same rest from labor, to heal and grow, to prepare for tomorrow, but far too often sleep is needed to give us a break from our egos. That being the case, you could wonder how some people ever wake up.
Evidence of an exaggerated ego? It appears for a person to say ‘there is no God,’ this is quite a stretch being that life is proof enough.
Ms Wisp observed when speaking of God in her post: https://violetwisp.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/the-emperors-new-clothes/
‘We can’t see him, hear him, touch him, smell him, measure him or detect him in any way. Christians are still convinced he’s there.’
Ah no, we can see him, we can hear Him, we can touch, smell, measure, and detect Him in EVERY way; we simply award the Oscar to ourselves, giving congratulatory speeches thanking ourselves while we hold our hands over our eyes, put our fingers in our ears, hold our noses, use the wrong standard for measurement, and have dead batteries in the heart for detection, all the while flattering ourselves with our alleged intellect which leaves God out from his own creation.
Wake up already.
Still not convinced and willing to cling tenaciously to the cold facts of a hard heart? Then use your eyes and look up, and look within; use your ears to hear the sounds of life, the babbling brook or a thunderstorm, the cry of a newborn wanting her mother, or the pure laughter of a boy with a toy truck; touch Him through compassion, mercy, truth, patience, joy, and by the hands and words of others; smell the lily of the valley or a fresh blanket of snow which points to the author of that scent; and measure the unfathomed boundaries of infinity if you can; and detection is easy:
There is this thing called the conscience which is pretty much all the proof one needs as the Great Detector.
Too much sleep is a bad thing…
By the way, WHO cares for you while you are dead to the world………….?
