"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers.
For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."
Romans 13:1

Tomorrow morning at 2:00 AM we switch to Daylight Savings Time. The power of men through congressional law control us to move our clocks ahead one hour.  We use the friendly  and positive term "spring forward"... (but in reality we lose an hour, but gain it back in the fall).   By advancing the clock one hour, the sun appears to set later in the evening. Of course, it also rises one hour later in the morning. The day of the big switch used to be the first Sunday of April, but in 2005, Congress revised the rule as an energy-saving measure. Bottomline line for me... I lose an hour of sleep.

Men feel powerful when they can control things. They become prideful. We might think we have power to control, like changing/altering the time...  but we don't control we only manipulate the things of God.
