Are you awake? Can’t sleep? Read the book of Leviticus that should put you right to sleep! And you’ll learn something too! Jokes apart, The Book of Leviticus is a very serious book and a lot to digest. All I can say is: I am thankful for Jesus Christ and the Grace of God.
Sleep is a gift from God to replenish our body and to communicate with our spirit. Sleep is essential to our performance and effectiveness in daily living.
I don’t have any problem falling asleep at all. But I’ve fallen asleep many times trying to read the book of Leviticus. Whenever my children use the old excuse “mom, I can’t fall asleep!” I tell them to read the book of Leviticus. And reply back “It’s boring!”. Lol. That does it. Every time!
Reading is very relaxing, and what better way to fall asleep? Beats falling asleep in front of the T.V. and having all that junk in your spirit.
