Awaken my heart...

Awaken, by Natalie Grant
Have you ever felt like a song, a hymn, a worship CD, has spoken the words that you have hidden in your heart?

I truly believe that there is a serious God connection within music and I love to praise, sing (I like to sing it, but most people don't like to hear it), and enjoy Christian Music. As I struggle with trying to make everything make sense there has been a release that has come to me through music, particularly this song, Awaken, by: Natalie Grant. If you haven't heard it...you have to check it out, google it, whatever...but listen to it.

The words have been ministering to me in some remarkable ways...over the next couple of days I am going to be blogging about your DREAMS. I want you to take the time right now to read the words to this song, and start preparing yourself to really dive deep to see where you have hidden the DREAMS that God has laid on your heart (some of you haven't thought about this in years!).

Let's unpack the baggage and really starting to DREAM BIG (God does!).

Have a Blessed Day...Awakened, Melissa

Sometimes I feel like I'm just existing
I'm not really living
I'm only watching the time slip away
I've forgotten who I am in you
I'm not who I'm meant to be, no
I'm drifting farther away from my destiny

CHORUS:
Awaken my heart, awaken my soul
Awaken your power and take control
Awaken the passion to live for you, Lord
Awaken me

My soul is longing, my heart is searching
I'm desperate for you to move
Give me a hunger, pull me closer
I'm crying out to you

CHORUS
Open my eyes so I can see your presence
Dwelling inside
Wake me up, 'cause I can't live another minute
If I'm not shining your light

Awaken my heart, Awaken my soul
Awaken the passion in me

Lord, awaken me to live my destiny
Lord, awaken me and shine your light through me
Lord, awaken me to live my destiny
Lord, awaken me and shine your light through me
Give me the passion Jesus, I wanna live for you.
