Lyrics:

Nothing holds a candle
To the beauty of Your ways
Standing here in wonder
In the aftermath of grace
Everything is new again
Colors coming out
Of black and white
Everything within me
Is coming alive

(Chorus)
You Awaken My Soul
You Awaken My Soul
Oh I'm in love
Yeah, I'm in deep
My heart is Yours
It's Yours to keep
Words just can't explain it
All I know is
You awaken my soul

Breathing in the healing
Your Spirit inside us
Bringing songs of freedom
We're dancing in this love
Everything is new again
Colors coming out
Of black and white
Everything within me
Is coming alive

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Cause I'm wide awake,
wide awake
Whoa, I see You
Wide awake, wide awake
Whoa, I see You

Cause I'm wide awake,
wide awake
Whoa, I see You
Wide awake, wide awake
Whoa, I see You

(Chorus)

Ephesians 5:14

“AWAKE you who sleep, arise from the dead and Christ will give you light.”

 

Proverbs 8:35

“…Whoever find Me finds LIFE.”

One of the most important things we can do in this super high-speed day and age is SLOW DOWN and STOP.  It’s critical that we logically look at our culture and the influences it’s having on us so we can decide who we are meant to be in the midst of it.  If we don’t slow down long enough to evaluate and question the world around us the chances of us getting lulled into a “hazy, sleepy, half-life” are super high.

We face a deluge of information, messages, texts, posts, notifications, blah blah blah…it’s a bombardment that our brains were never designed to handle and if we’re not careful, our “selfie-centered”, “social media-fied” world view can quickly become no further than six inches from our own nose as we find ourselves becoming a generation who ‘see’s’ the world via screens and ‘feels’ life through our fingertips rather than our five senses. 

Because of all of this ‘super stimulus’, rather than getting more intelligent, we are actually becoming more overwhelmed, depressed, addicted and medicated than ever.  Our real relationships are growing more disconnected, distant and damaged than ever before.  We measure our self worth (and the self worth of others) by how many “likes” we have and how many “friends” we’ve collected. Our brains are becoming dulled and calloused to REAL interaction, REAL communication, REAL people, REAL needs, and REAL life.  The scary thing is we are shutting down and closing ourselves off without even realizing it.

This is “life” as we know it, but are we truly “Alive”?

ONLY YOU CAN AWAKEN OUR SOULS!

Here’s the deal.  The ONE VOICE we need to hear in these crazy days is the voice of our Heavenly Father.  He made us and He desperately loves us.  He has good things for us, He wants to satisfy us, and bring us the peace only He can bring.  He wants to heal our hearts, lead us through every season, heartache and challenge we will face.  HE WANTS TO RENEW OUR MINDS and make us wise and give us exciting strategies to navigate the world we’re living in.  He wants nothing more than to WAKE US UP and BRING US LIFE! 

As we say YES to God, knowing Him, walking closely with Him everyday, EVERTHING becomes NEW AGAIN – COLORS COME OUT OF BLACK AND WHITE.  As we grow in our relationship with Him the logical, natural outcome is that EVERYTHING WITHIN US WILL BEGIN COMING ALIVE! Thank You Lord for this beautiful promise!
