I want to be awake. To walk around with eyes wide open, expectant of what God has for me today. Not groggy, dripping with anxious thoughts and condemning reminders, but free to be hopeful of what God can do through me.
Most days, in my own strength, I’m the opposite of awake. Asleep. If I am asleep I miss out on the blessings of the day. God wants to bless me! He waits, like a parent watching His child take her first steps. What does choosing to walk through the day, wide awake like?
Light beaming on the soul.
Obedience motivated by love.
And so, today… I choose to walk this day, eyes – wide – open. Why? Because asleep, I simply miss out on HIM!
Sarah Reeve’s Awaken lyrics say,
“God of life You do not sleep
You live and move and breathe with us
Let us see Your love
Brilliant as the risen sun
Lord rescue every one of us
Let Your kingdom come
For only You will break the darkness.”
