It's Your Time...

I woke up this morning to the sweetest email from my best friend.

She sent me the lyrics to this song that made her think of me every time she heard it. Here are the lyrics:

You've been faithful, you've been true
And you've done all that you can do
And for your faithfulness, it's your time
You applauded for the rest
Now it's your time to be blessed
And for your faithfulness, it's your time
You've waited for so long
But you held on, and you were strong
And for your faithfulness, it's your time
You encouraged everyone else
When you needed it for yourself
And for your faithfulness, it's your time
You encouraged everyone else
When you needed it for yourself
And for your faithfulness, it's your time

This song is dedicated to all of you who have been working in the vineyard for the Lord for what seems like a lifetime. You have dreamed and you've worked towards things that you've wanted to accomplish for yourself. But somehow your biggest goals always seem to be just out of your reach. But the Lord told me to tell you He knows who you are. Yes, He's seen your work and He's also seen your tears. And He wants you to know that you are not forgotten. He's here to reward you for all your faithfulness. For He said in His word if you will delight yourself in Him, He will give you the desires of your heart. In other words, not only will He give you what you need, but He promised to give you whatever you want. So don't get discouraged. So don't give up. Hang in there and prepare yourself for your blessing. It's your time now.

You have waited for so long.
But you held on, you were strong
And for your faithfulness
Because you hung in there when times got hard
And when it seemed like nobody cared
You kept right on working
You kept right on doing good things
And for your faithfulness
And for your faithfulness, it's your time

He told me to tell you, it's your time!


What an AWESOME way to start my day :)
