Arise!

It’s a Carpenters sort of morning here in the southeast, but we can’t let that stop us from having a great attitude.  Consider these words as you approach the day.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive-to breathe, to think, to enjoy to love” Marcus Aurelius

and while you are thinking about that, lets remember where our life comes from.  And maybe a trip to the valley of the dry bones will take us away from this rain and yuck and remind us why we are so privileged this morning to be alive.

This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:5

and I just love this a few verses later

 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live 37:14

How privileged are we to walk around today living with the Spirit of the creator in us.

To steal a simple prayer from Chris Tomlin’s new song Awake My Soul

Breathe on me, breath of God, breathe on me, I come alive, I’m alive when You breathe on me
