Breathing, yet no pulse of life
Existing, yet not living
Going through the motions—no passion or desire
Afraid to let go, while giving up on dreams—settling for less
Life of regret, no chances taken
Living in fear, yet no desire to change
Are you dead before dying?

Hollow, empty, bent, and broken
Superficial existence, stalled mid-dream
Love withered on the one-way road of advantage
Unmet expectations adrift in the sea of frustration
Hopes dashed on the crags of despair
Dead calm with no breeze, momentum, or progress
Are you dead before dying?

Wake up! Get up! Lift up your eyes to the hills from where your help comes!
The Creator of the Universe walks beside you, empowering you!
Be bold, be strong; the Lord is with you! (Joshua 1:9)
Come boldly into His presence! (Hebrews 4:16)
Be refreshed by the renewing of your mind! (Romans 12:2)
Let Him restore and rest your soul! (Psalm 23:3)
His yoke is easy and His burden is light! (Matthew 11:29-30)

Don’t give up or give in—live His abundant life! (John 10:10)
He stands at your heart’s door whispering
He lives! And wants to live with you!
He loves! And wants to share it with you
He revives! And wants to invigorate you!
He restores! And wants to infuse you with His power!
He rebuilds! And wants to create a masterpiece with you!
He renews! And wants to lead you through a new start!
He refreshes! And wants to lead you to His oasis!
And He offers it all to you!

Do not give up or give in—give it all to Him because He cares about you! (1 Peter 5:7)
He is waiting; all you have to lose is time.
No dying before your appointed time!
Live! Choose to live!
Live with, for, and before Him!
Are you ready?
