AWAKE

A daily privilege so often taken for granted!

Ann, age 57, took a one hour nap. Ray tried to wake her at 1:30 PM. Ann never opened her eyes again. A brain aneurysm took her life. Awake, God’s gift was gone forever.

Brian, age 27. Suffered a heart attack in the middle of the night. Awake was no longer one of Brian’s gifts from God.

Today Josh Groban’s song with the African Christian children’s choir, You Raise Me Up, 

was a reminder of the privilege of being able to wake up and be awake today.

As you listen to Josh and this amazing African children’s choir saying watch for three things.

1.  Watch the beautiful faces of the children.

What is more beautiful and tender but a smile and eyes full of light on the child’s face?

2.  Be quick to listen. Read the words of this spiritual moving song.

When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up to more than I can be

3.  Let the soft sweet Spirit touch your soul.

Fred Crowell personal reflection: My life is living proof that this song about God is true to reality. Christ plus Fred C was, is, and forever will be a GAME CHANGER. 

Good news, every child is so special to our Abba Father that He will raise us up to walk on mountains, lift us up on His shoulders, and make us far more than we could ever be on our own.
