We’re just a group of young people with simple words and simple hearts. We love the Lord.
He is our Everything.
At our start, we were ten girls with ten simple stories. Similar stories, mind you. Each of us, born a sinner. Each of us, held captive to the flesh. And all the while the Lord pursued us. Somewhere along the way, we returned to Him. His mercy saved us from destruction, His grace offered us life eternal, His love saved us from ourselves. Ten simple girls with simple words and simple hearts.
Different ages, different personalities, different walks of life. And yet there’s one thing that binds us all together: we were all bought with the precious blood of Christ. For that we are eternally grateful.
We came together in December 2012 in an effort to minister to the young girls of our churches. It was laid upon our hearts to serve the youth and encourage them in the Lord.
Thus, Come Awake was born.
Since launching in February 2013, we have added several new members: Vinay, Joel, Garrett, Sarah, and Shannon. We’re thankful to have them on board with us as we serve the Lord in this way. With the addition of our four male contributors, we hope to reach out to the young men of our generation and offer them encouragement in the Lord.
Our purpose here is to encourage and edify this young generation of Christians. We aim to break down the walls of solitude and bridge the gaps separating us. Through this blog, we hope to hold each other accountable and build each other up according to the ways of the Lord.
Come Awake is our effort to reach out to those in need of Love and Hope. This is our effort to minister to broken hearts, crushed spirits, lost souls. This is our effort to cast a light upon the Hope and Joy we know, the Unconditional Love we experience. This is our effort to awaken those still slumbering for something far greater than what their wildest dreams consist of…
