How are you being called to share God’s love?

Psalm 57:9-10

Awake, my soul; awake, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn. I will praise you among the peoples, Lord; I will chant your praise among the nations.

For me these verses took on a literal meaning.

It wasn’t until my soul was awakened that I started writing and singing songs of praise to God.

My soul was awakened when my misery rose to such a level that my ego was forced to surrender. It could no longer prop up the false self it had created.

My true self was hidden under layers of masks. My “soul pain” had finally overwhelmed my ego’s resistance.

Is your soul awake

Are you being your true self?

This requires listening to the gentle nudges of God in your heart. To do so…you will need to practice being present to the Divine Presence. Otherwise…the noise of the world and your mind’s non-stop commentaries will enslave you.

I once heard this piece of advice from spiritual writer and speaker Dr. Wayne Dyer: “Don’t die with your music still inside you.”

What is your “music” that is meant to be shared with others?

What unique gifts do you have to offer the world from your awakened soul?

Go forth glorifying God with your life!
