breaking up the fallow ground

These verses weighed heavily on my heart this morning {for myself}, and I just wanted to share them here too:
Hosea 10:12: Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.  
Romans 13:11: Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. 12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
Oh friend, what fallow ground needs to be broken up in your life? In what area of your life do you need to put on the Lord Jesus Christ and stop gratifying your flesh? {If you're like me, you have many!}

The hour has come for us to wake up from our sleep! Jesus is coming- let us not be found sleeping when He returns! May He find His bride ready and awaiting Him, wearing His robe of righteousness!
