Another sleepless night results in reading Romans and taking about 5 bazillion notes. I tried reading this book and doing a study over it this past summer but I just couldn't get into it, I didn't understand half of what it was saying and truly I just wasn't ready. I haven't been able to sleep this past week and it has been miserable. I kept praying and asking God if there was something I needed to ask forgiveness of, something He wanted to tell me, anything. Tonight I laid down, praying sleep would come. I laid there for about 2 hours and finally said "ok Lord, please I need sleep. What is it?" He said "Romans! I've been putting Romans every where for you to get the hint and I guess I just have go say it outloud to you!" As I thought back, He has been telling me.. YouTube videos, devotionals, friends posts, all over Instagram.. I've just been missing the signs, of more avoiding them because I still didn't feel ready for Romans.
Well tonight I got it! I grabbed my bible, pen, paper, of course some washi tape and got to reading. I guess I am ready, because I have been sitting at this table for over an hour and I've only gotten through chapter 1! There is so much goodness packed into just one chapter. I have taken over 6 pages of notes. On to chapter 2... I don't think I'll be getting any sleep tonight but God is with me and if I get through this book maybe I can sleep again ❤
