In reference to "slumbering through life" , there was a time when that was reality for me. I had so many walls, defenses and pain. Staying numb and " asleep " in my area of desire was easier than feeling pain and getting in touch with my true desires.
I have since decided to pursue healing and a deeper relationship with God. This involves waking up to life and what He has to offer. It also involves loving again and being willing to embrace pain in order to come alive. I'm finding that being alive and embracing pain is way better than being asleep and going through life in a daze.
Slumbering No More,
