Awake My Soul

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ALW1AwdKEnM I’m sorry, I don’t know how to embed the video.

It has been a hard month.  At times, I felt my whole being was under siege.  Then Spring began to happen in our part of the South.  Flowers began to bloom.  At one shopping area, I saw a whole line of pink cherry trees in full bloom.  I began to remember how my God would never forsake me, how He loves and holds me close always.   This dry soul began to bloom again as His Spirit began to breathe new hope into me.

Ezekiel  37: 1-14  I hope you all can follow the link to this very different song.  It is not just about God telling Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones of the valley; how the bones became flesh and breathe.  It is also about God breathing into our dry souls and bringing new life to us; how He alone can awake our souls.

This song by Chris Tomlin is not your tame bit of Christian music – it is a full rocker.  Bless you all during this season leading up to the resurrection of our Lord.

Breathe on me, breath of God, breathe on me
Breathe on me, breath of God, breathe on me
I come alive, I’m alive when you breathe on me
I come alive, I’m alive when you breathe on me

Chorus:
Awake, awake, awake my soul,
God resurrect these bones
From death to life, for you alone
Awake my soul

Speak to me, word of God, speak to me
Speak to me, word of God, speak to me
I come alive, I’m alive when you speak to me
I come alive, I’m alive when you speak to me

Chorus:
Awake, awake, awake my soul,
God resurrect these bones
From death to life, for you alone
Awake my soul

Lecrae:
Then He said to me,
Prophesy to these bones and say to them,
Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!
This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones,
I will make breath into you,
And you will come to life.”
So I prophesied as I was commanded.
As I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound,
And the bones came together, bone to bone.
And I looked, and tendons and the flesh appeared on them,
And skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
Then He said to me,
Prophesy to the breath,
Prophesy, son of man, and say to it,
Come from four winds, oh breath, and breathe.

Chorus:
Awake, awake, awake my soul,
God resurrect these bones
From death to life, for you alone
Awake my soul

Awake, awake, awake my soul,
God resurrect these bones
From death to life, for you alone
Awake my soul

Lecrae:
Yeah, I’m not alone, I realize
I breathe out, I come alive
Your word gives life to my dry bones
Your breath tells death it can ride on
Awake me, make me a living stone,
A testament to your throne, I
I’m nothing without you, I’m on my own
The only one who satisfies my soul
