would you?

      It’s easy to get in the habit of walking around half-asleep. Most people do. If someone invited you to wake up today, would you?       

“’[The child] has died. . . .’ Taking the child by the hand, [Jesus] said to her . . . ‘Little girl, arise from your sleep.’ And immediately the girl got up. . . .” Mark 35, 41

Father, rouse me from my sleep. Make me fully alive.
