Come, awake!

There is a song by David Crowder that the Lord brings to my mind at those times when my soul most needs to hear it.

It’s those times when I don’t realize that I am becoming drowsy.

Those times when I have grown weary.

It’s those times when the eyelids of my life are weighing heavy and I haven’t yet realized that there was once a better view,

…a greater perspective,

…a wider outlook.

Night is weighing heavy now

Be quiet and wait for the voice that will say

Come awake, from sleep, arise

You were dead, become alive…

In truth, this songs lyrics point to that crucial step of not knowing the Lord as your personal Savior to knowing His Salvation in a personal way.

In truth, this song has nothing to do with pulling the fog from your life and stepping out of it.

In truth, isn’t a humble reminder of what our Lord has done for us a lot like pulling the fog from your life and stepping out of it?

May the Lord de-fog your spiritual windshield today so that you can clearly see the beautiful things He is doing in your life.
