Awaken My Soul. It's so easy in life to simply go through the motions, and this can be true, even in our spiritual life. We hear and know intellectually that we serve an amazing, powerful God who knows us intimately and yet loves us unconditionally. He is for us, His goodness overflows to us, He has provided a way for our salvation and victory over death and the grave. We can know this intellectually and yet our hearts can be dead to it, well, maybe not dead, more like, asleep. Awaken My Soul is a call to our spirits to embrace what we know to be true and to awaken from our spiritual slumber. An invitation to the Holy Spirit to move in us as He sees fit. An invitation for Him to blow through the caverns of our soul, to awaken our first love, to pour in us to overflow.
