Fully Awake...

"Wake up, my heart! Wake up, oh lyre and harp!

I will wake the dawn with my song." Psalm 57: 8 (New Living Translation)

When I came across this verse I felt the joy and life in it. Then I thought about how seldom I am actually living this way. I got to thinking about how I need to be fully awake so much more often than I currently am.

This past weekend I went to Heaven Fest, a Christian music festival here in Denver. One of the artists Matthew West talked about living with passion and fire in your soul, and walking away from whatever is "lukewarm" in your life. Such a simple message about living life to the fullest, and it's not a new idea. It is a good reminder though. An unexamined life is a wasted one. God wants us to give this life everything we've got.




(Listen to Matthew West's song "The Motions")
Today I hope that you will be present and live in the moment, live in the calling that Christ has for your life. God has designed you for a purpose. Be awakened to the love, life and peace that God wants you to have.

"Life is a celebration of awakenings, of new beginnings and wonderful surprises that enlighten the soul." -- Cielo

Grace & Peace,
