True Revival

Video

I always thought “revival” involved tents, snakes, and a miraculous healer. Awhile ago our church hosted a revival. They brought in an old dude to speak and give several seminars over the course of a week. It was as far opposite of my idea of “revival” as possible.  It was really cool!!!  My definition and understanding of “revival” no longer included howling in tongues and chanting “Hallelujahs!” That worship speaks to some, not so much to me.  This song captures the essence of true revival. It starts as one tiny internal flame – Jesus.  Revival is about throwing some tinder on that spark of Christ. The lyrics also remind me that when I really feel at my fullest, it is when I am pursuing the Lord in my life, my mind, and my heart. I especially like the part that says, “Revive me, that I may seek your Word.”  Wow.  I pray for continued wisdom and internal revival that overflows into the rest of my life. I want to get excited about serving and seeking you, Lord. Gives me tingles in my tummy!
