Slumber


"And do this, understanding the present time:  The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed."
Romans 13:11

When life throws you lemons, make lemonade?  Right?!  When life has you down in the dumps and you don't even want to get out of bed, WAKE UP!  Wake up and see that God is always with you.  Wake up and see that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love him. (Romans 8:28)  Wake up and see that He is your salvation.

Lyrics of Slumber by Need to Breathe:

Days they force you
Back under those covers
Lazy mornings they multiply
But glory's waiting
Outside your window
So wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

Tongues are violent
Personal and focused
Tough to beat with
Your steady mind
But hearts are stronger after broken
So wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

The longer you wait to Wake Up, the harder it is to do...the "lazy mornings they multiply."  But God is waiting right "outside your window."  He will never abandon you, even in your slumber.  This world can be tough to negotiate, even when properly rooted and nourished by God.  Always remember that "hearts are stronger after broken."  (Romans 5:3-4)

"So wake on up from your slumber and open up your eyes!"
