Vaya Con Dios

The Eclectic Cowboy

Winfield Davenport

   While you were sleeping - while we're lieing in the dark there's a shout heard across the eastern sky. For the bridegroom has returned and has carried his bride away in the night.

   I was listening to this song randomly when it started speaking to me. (I'm a big fan of Casting Crowns.) As I heard this part to America that brought back memories of camp. In the bible it states that we are the brides of Christ, and yes that includes the guys. As that bride of Christ we are devoting ourselves to Christ. In the song it asks us if we will sleep through the night that he comes. In our world today we can be distracted by so many things. As we go through our life after we first claim Christ we can fall away. Soon we stop listening or talking to him. He tries to get our attention but we just ignore him. We can get so lost that we sleep through the time he comes for us. We will have missed our chance to be great for him. Let's try to stay awake so that we can see the ways that we can make a difference.

God Bless!!!
