Sleep Can Be Your Friend

I have been on a crazy schedule since Daylight Savings Time changed. I am still functioning based on the old time. I go to bed after 1am and get up around 8:30am and just can’t seem to get adjusted. I know I need to get on a better routine, but it’s tough since I seem to be most productive getting work done after the kids go to bed. I think it goes back to the fact that for the past 12 years I was in effect a bi-vocational minister. The only time I had to spend preparing lessons and sermons was late at night. It’s tough to break old habits.

The last few days have been especially tough, I’ve had a lot on my mind and have gotten much less sleep than normal. But at least it’s time well spent, since I am usually reading or studying my Bible. Enough rambling for now, I just wish we could stick with a time and not change back and forth. About the time I get adjusted, we’ll be switching back.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
