We are surrounded by electronic devices like TVs, computers, and iPads, and it would be hard to learn to live without technology. However, it is important that we learn to handle our exposure to technology so we won’t block good health.
Bright white, green, and blue light emitted from our devices can cause our brains to think it is still daytime and keep our bodies from releasing the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. Melatonin also aids our immune systems to fight off sickness and even cancer.
So, as the evening hours approach, keep exposure to blue light to a minimum, stopping exposure preferably one to two hours before bedtime. Dim white lights in the evening as well. Switching to another wavelength like yellow, red, or amber hues like those found in salt lamps can aid the body to transition to beneficial rest. Also, wearing blue-blocking glasses, especially as night time arrives, can block any form of disrupting light. Failure to withdraw from sleep disrupting light can contribute to an extra hour and a half of restless tossing and turning.
All this harmful light exposure has disrupted our circadian clock. It’s time to hit the reset button! An important step to resetting the body’s biological clock and help the body to naturally increase its own melatonin production is to receive natural sunlight during the day. If possible, glean natural rays first thing in the morning. This will send a signal to the brain that daytime has arrived, helping to jumpstart the day. Also, make it a priority to receive safe sunshine later on in the day.

TRAVEL THE HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN:
GOD’S WORD from the book of ROMANS tells you the way. GOD has GREAT NEWS for you. You can go to HEAVEN when you die.
GOD TELLS YOU HE LOVES YOU
Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
GOD TELLS YOU THAT NO ONE IS GOOD
Romans 3:10, “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.”
Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
GOD TELLS YOU HOW SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD WHEN ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN
Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”
GOD TELLS YOU THE PENALTY FOR SIN
Romans 6:23a, “For the wages of sin is DEATH.” This means eternal separation from God in a place called HELL.
GOD TELLS YOU HIS WAY OF SALVATION
Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
If you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and that God raised him from the dead and will tell this to God, He will save you.
Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Jesus, who is God the Son, never sinned. He paid the sin debt for you by dying on the cross so that you could have salvation.
Romans 6:23b, “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Right now, repent of your sins; call to God in faith believing He can save you and tell Him:
God, be merciful to me a sinner. I believe that Jesus died for me, he was buried, and you raised Him from the dead. Save me, I ask in Jesus name. Amen.
Three things you need to do after being saved to help you grow:
- PRAY. This is how YOU TALK TO GOD to praise Him and tell Him your needs.
- READ THE BIBLE. This is the way GOD TALKS TO YOU and tells you what he wants you to know.
- JOIN A BIBLE-BELIEVING CHURCH for encouragement in your Christian life.
- TELL OTHERS. This is the way YOU TALK FOR GOD.
