For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.
Do you remember the moment when everything changed? It is surely impossible to put perfect language around the human heart bursting to life for the first time. But, do you remember? When all of a sudden, the voice of God sounded like singing. All anxiety was overtaken by destiny, and fear was overrun by faith. Purpose replaced aimlessness, and pride was no match for surrender. You were a nomad given a home. You were a peasant made royal. You were once in darkness, prone to wander in the shadows, but now you are light. You have been crowned with a new name; “child of light.”
Or is it possible that you are lost today? Still struggling to find some way through the darkness. Don’t try to carry this life alone. You were never meant to. Come trade your ashes for beauty, your mourning for dancing, and your sorrow for joy. This whisper of the Father never stops. Can you hear it today?
out of the shadows / it’s time to let go / let freedom take hold / come alive / come taste the morning / the fathers calling / don’t waste a minute / step into the light
