Slumber – Need to Breathe

This song has really affected me on my runs.  It reminds me that God’s glory is waiting if we will just get up and move.  I realized that I too often wait for something to happen instead of making it happen.

Don’t get me wrong.  A difference exists between waiting for the key moment and just waiting for no reason.  This song reminds us that patterns begin in our life.  Lazy days multiple when glory is waiting just outside our door.

I choose to move and I choose glory over being lazy.    That’s why this song made it into my playlist.

Days they force you
Back under those covers
Lazy mornings they multiply
But glory’s waiting
Outside your window
So wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

Tongues are violent
Personal and focused
Tough to beat with
Your steady mind
But hearts are stronger after broken
So wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Your invitation
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes

Take from vandals
All you want now
But please don’t trade it in for life
Replace the feeble
With the fable
Wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Your invitation
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes

Sing like we used to
Dance when you want to
Taste of the breakthrough
And open wide

All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Your invitation
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes

Sing like we used to
And dance like you want to
Open up your eyes
