The words “Awake my soul” were originally penned by a young man named David. Although they sound encouraging, they came from a most desolate place. David had been anointed the future king, given the promise of leading a people. But the current king was power-hungry and refused to surrender his throne.
A young man in his twenties, David was on the run, fearing for his life. His only solitude was a small, secluded cave where he could hide from his enemies.
It is in that cave where David proclaimed these words:
“Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge…
I cry out to God Most High He sends from heaven and saves me…
My heart is steadfast, I will sing
Awake, my soul!” – Psalm 57
What Wakes Your Soul?
Caves are no place to live, yet I find that many of us take shelter in them from time to time.
Fear is deceptive and it tells us to hide. Just like our brother Adam in the garden, we run from God.
We invest in things, hoping an awakened soul would be the outcome. In short, we are all seeking some form of richness. Yet, all too often, this pursuit leads us back into our proverbial cave. Seemingly, the awakened soul eludes us.
In my book, Redefine Rich, we take a journey of uncovering true riches. And, in the process, we find an awakened soul.
Maybe you’ve been searching, but is it possible that you need a fresh perspective?
Join the thousands of readers who are breaking free from their proverbial caves and uncovering a new perspective on the Good Life.
