All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes
Needless to say The Reckoning has been dominating my car rides lately. Let me just say, the car is my jammin' out place. It's where I pretend I'm on stage and sing my lungs out. Music really speaks to me and whenever I hear a new song or new album I really try to listen to the lyrics and try to get the meaning out of the words. Well I was listening to Slumber today on NeedtoBreathe's new album today and I've heard it several times already, but when I was really listening today the lyrics above got me thinking.
We are all these victims. We stand in line to accept only the crumbs that fall from the table. We are only looking for enough to get by, but is this what Christ wants for us. I think not. We can get so blinded by our need to survive and forget how much more God wants for our lives. We continuously settle for the bare minimum in life and forget that the greatest invitation is waiting on us each day. We don't have to settle for the crumbs because Christ has an entire feast waiting on us, we just need to wake up and open up our eyes.
It's amazing how a few lines of a song can really speak to a much greater picture. It triggers things that you may forget in the daily drum of life. This is something I want to work on. I want to continuously seek out God's will for my life and to never settle for a ho-hum world. I want to wake up to the excellence I know is waiting on me.
