Some reasons to get out of bed today

If you are like me you are running on empty most days, and your to-do list just keeps growing and growing.  Most days are overwhelming with a cumulative list of tasks.

Ever get to the point of thinking twice about getting out of bed?  The doorway to depression is often calling your name, beckoning your heart to just succumb to the pressure of giving up.   

Do you see the usher of self-pity waving you in?  

At this point, it's tempting to just pull the covers over your head, and escape to sweet sleep.  That's really all you need is more rest, right?  More restful sleep?  More escape from your problems, more vacations from your thoughts?  More peace in your life?

I have found a good reason to pull back the covers of your heart, and let your feet hit the floor.  There are some good reasons to get out of bed today.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15  "For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and there for all died.  And he died for all, that those who live should no longer love for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."

Are you a Christian and reading this right now?  Have you accepted Christ's love into your heart and know you are going to Heaven when you say goodbye?  Then YOU have every reason to get out of bed today.

Let your feet hit the floor shod with God's love.

Christ's love compels, controls.
Christ's love reconciles.
Christ's love forgives, tolerates.
Christ's love convinces and changes.
Christ's love moves and acts, infiltrates and penetrates.

His love draws us in and revives, brings.
His love makes right our hearts and sets us apart.
His love sanctifies and makes us clean.
His love gives and receives, remakes.
His love claims and keeps.

Christ's love secures and seals our hearts for eternity.
Christ's love grips and holds.
His love fastens and locks.
His love heals and abides.
His love convinces and argues.

Christ's love settles and summarizes.
Christ's love victors and champions.
His love has overcome my sin, and those battles that wage war within.
His love completes and finishes.
His love is unconditional and eternal.

His love is endless and measureless.
It's greater and most significant.
It's compelling and controlling.
His love moves my feet, moves my heart.
His love is all.

When I list Christ's love...so completely (and I just barely covered the surface) it gives me purpose.  It gives me a reason to get out of bed.

Don't you want to share this?  The One and Only True Love?   Christ died for you.  Christ died for your sharing.  Christ's love is worth sharing.

Let me tell you...you have to get out of bed to share it.  Love doesn't speak well all covered up.
