A Song for the Awakening

This is one of my favorite new songs I have written. I was in Sturgeon Bay and had some time between concerts and so I stopped in at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. They have this amazing foyer that they have opened up during the week as a coffee shop. They provide cookies and muffins and coffee and you donate what you’d like or want… if you can. They play Christian music and it is really quite nice! (Great idea for your church too!)

Anyways as I was driving there I sensed that I was going to write a song. It was meant to be and somehow I knew it. And then, wow, it turned out so well, I couldn’t be more pleased!


LYRICS & Chords:

You Make All Things New

You make all things new, You make all things new
Like the dawn breaking after the night
You make all things new, You make all things new
We are drawn to your beauty and light

We are made a new creation, as we receive your salvation
You’ve come down, and live now in us
Now One with our Creator, partakers of your Nature
You conform us to your Son
With your love, ohh, ohh…
In your love, ohh, ohh…

Chords: Bbadd11 Abadd9 Cm7 Eb/G Fm11
Just like the wildflowers springing from the desert
When the autumn (latter) rains fall to the earth
Your sons and your daughters will rise with love’s power
When your presence drenches your church
With your love, ohh, ohh…
With your love, ohh, ohh…

We are made a new creation…

You make all things new, You make all things new
Hopeless souls by your blood are reborn
You make all things new, You make all things new
Broken lives in your love are restored
In your love, ohh, ohh…
In your love, ohh, ohh…

More About the Next Great Awakening!

What can I say? I can’t pretend to know anything more than you do about the mysterious ways of God. The Awakening (I suppose it’s something of a spiritual Enlightenment) and/or a lack thereof is, I suppose, the ebb and flow of God’s Holy Spirit. He knows the perfect time to release more of the awareness of His Presence and when to refrain and blind our minds (because we aren’t ready, and it’s usually for our own good). There is a “time for everything” as Ecclesiastes says.

Well I believe the time is Now! At least I hope it is.

An Awakening can be a messy and confusing time. Ever read church history books about the Awakenings of the past? Whenever there is a move of God’s Holy Spirit I guarantee there will also be the witch hunters, the skeptics, the antagonists. Manifestations of God’s Spirit and our egos (or demonic) reactions to God’s Spirit are often misunderstood and even condemned by the most “respected theologians” among us.

I have also become aware that there is a HUGE “Truth” movement in what you might call the New Age world that many are calling an “Awakening” as well, but my question is, can you have an Awakening without Yeshua – who is the Way the Truth and the Life? How can you have a truth movement without Mr. Truth Himself?

Well, there is so much about this subject that could bury our minds in confusion – which is exactly what the enemy wants. What the enemy doesn’t want is for any of us to get alone like I am about to do and seek God.

“Seek the Lord while you can find him.
Call on him now while he is near.
Let the wicked change their ways
and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.
Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.”
~ Isaiah 55:6-7
