GET UP!!!!!!!!!!

Just like a log of wood, he lay still on his bed; not moving his body or even blinking an eye, it seemed as though the earth stood still under his roof. The phone rang, but NO-he wouldn’t pick up; the mail came in, but he didn’t bother to check what was inside. Except for the TV which played all through the night till the next day, his apartment was quiet like a graveyard. The voice of the newscasters from BBC echoed in his head as they read out the headlines over again. Hearing those words again were like torture to him as he reminisced on the times spent in Canary Wharf, blazing through Canada-Square for lunch at 2pm and the beautiful view of the fountain from the 22nd floor of his office. It was a bitter moment, he didn’t see it coming; he didn’t believe he was made redundant. There were bills to pay, the mortgage, electricity, gas, internet, water bills, car insurance, council tax, telephone bills, etc and the worst of all was that he just took an overdraft from his bank. Life seemed to have paused for Jide.
Does this sound like what you’re going through? Do you feel like your life has paused and you are locked up in a shell? Do you feel like you’re standing at the edge of a cliff? I have good news for you; you may not have seen it coming but God did and He has made an escape way for you. So don’t just lie/sit down there doing nothing, it’s time to get up. You won’t be able to look ahead if you’re sitting and pondering over the situation. People may have talked about the difficulty in the economy, the increase in tax and the speed with which the price of every commodity has increased. All of that doesn’t matter cos the economy doesn’t define your present situation. What people say does not count, what counts is what you say cos what you say is what you get. You’ve got to make a change and if you don’t make a move…nothing will change. Believe that there’s something better ahead of you and trust God completely cos when He takes you to a cliff, He either gives you wings to fly or He’ll make a safe landing for you. But first, you have to GET UP.


Verse 1.
Layin’ low, rest and pause,
Sleeping long, slow motion
Gonna do, shoulda, coulda
Woulda done, excuses
What are you afraid of?
Don’t you know what you’re made of?
One of God’s greatest creations
Take this invitation now
Get up, ’cause you can’t stop
Get up, got a lot to do
24 hours, almost gone
Get up, don’t sit back
Get up, if you wanna get there
Clocks don’t stop and time won’t wait
Verse 2
He said, she said, they said, what do you say?
It’s your dreams, your choice, our time, your life
So don’t you, don’t you miss it
What are you afraid of?
Don’t you know what you’re made of?
One of God’s greatest creations
Take this invitation now
Welcome to the rest of your life
From now on, just try
To live more, want more, work a little harder
Dance more, laugh more, be a little smarter
Hug a little longer, love a little stronger
You’ve been down but now it’s time to
