I drank a diet coke an hour ago and now I can't sleep! I know. You would think I would be smart enough to not load my body with caffeine right before bedtime. Sometimes I'm not too smart!

It isn't that I don't know caffeine may keep me awake. I've not only been told that but have experienced it. So, why did I do it? I guess because I wanted a diet coke. Foolish, huh?  I just didn't make a wise decision and I'm now suffering the consequences.

Do you know there are consequences for making decisions to do things that are contrary to what God tells us? Oh, it's not like God is looking down waiting to zap us when we do something we know we shouldn't do. He doesn't have to. Sin has built in consequences, kind of like drinking a coke before bedtime. 

Hoping next time I have better sense about doing things I know I should not do ( both physically and spiritually,) Gloria

I had the same problem last night, but not from diet coke. I think mine was from eating too much chocolate! Thanks for another good analogy.

Tina, if I'm going to miss sleep, I'd rather it be because I had chocolate!!! :D
