The second poem in the book, this title relates to both our first creation and new creation, using the “mud” reference to point back to Adam’s first rising from the earth and acknowledge that we still struggle in the morning, to find our mind, our heart, strength, identity, and purpose, even as a new creation in Christ. It also speaks possibly, more so in some ways, for people like myself who are not “morning people” or who struggle with rising in the morning and getting started, emotionally, mentally, spiritually. Every day is a new birth up out of the earth because sleeping is like the shadow of death, and waking is like rising again out of the earthen grave. It is the voice of the Lord Jesus, that we respond to wake us from our earthly slumber, just as it is written, “all who are in the graves will hear His voice ” – John 5:28
