valley of dry bones

when you feel dead on the inside
you speak –
speak to the lifelessness
to come alive
no matter how you’re feeling,
no matter what you’re thinking,
stir up your spirit man –
because it isn’t dead;

Then He said to me,
‘Prophesy to these bones and say to them,
“Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!
This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones,
I will make breath into you,
And you will come to life.”‘

So I prophesied as I was commanded.
As I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound,
And the bones came together, bone to bone.
And I looked, and tendons and the flesh appeared on them,
And skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

Then He said to me,
Prophesy to the breath,
Prophesy, son of man, and say to it,
“Come from four winds, 
and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”‘
So I prophesied as He commanded me
and breath came into them, and they lived, 
and stood upon their feet, 
an exceedingly great army.

because it is only sleeping,
and it’s time,
it’s time to wake up.
