The title Awaken Me was birthed on September 30, 2012!

In the fall of 2012, my husband and I were in Lubbock, Texas for the weekend visiting our daughter and her family. At the time, I was in the midst of writing a devotional prayer journal that I had yet to have a title for. I was in the process of praying and searching for the “perfect” title.

While in Lubbock, we went with our daughter and son-in-law to their church – Experience Life in downtown Lubbock. During worship that morning, the worship team was singing a song. As they were worshipping, I was deep in prayer asking the Lord to show me a title for the book. At one point in the prayer, I prayed, “Lord, please show me the right title for the book and please show me soon.” God spoke through His Holy Spirit, and said, “Patti, how many times do I have to tell you the title?” Right at that point, I realized that the song that was being sung had the lyrics “Awaken Me, Awaken Me,” being sung over and over and over again. It was at that moment the title became a reality. When I went back and counted the times the phrase Awaken Me was sung, it was around 14 times. God allowed those words to be sung and sung until I figured out He was speaking to me. From that moment, I never questioned what the title of this book would be.

After the book was published, I wrote to Experience Life to share my story with them, and to ask permission to put their beautiful song on my website.

I received an e-mail response back from Brandon Gwinn, the church worship leader. He shared with me how the song came about. He also gave permission to share the song with others. I hope you will take the time to prayerfully listen to the words of the song, and don’t give up because about mid-stream through the song, the “Awaken Me” starts. Brandon shared his story behind the song. He explains so much better than I could if I tried to relay it to you, so read Brandon's words from a recent e-mail.

"What an awesome story!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. The song was written by Mark, and Danielle, and myself at a songwriting retreat we took to Ruidoso, [New Mexico] last year. We decided to write a song that would fit well with our series called "Awakening", which was a baptism series about being spiritually awakened. So that's where we started with it, but it sort of took on a different direction as we started writing it. We wanted a song that conveyed the thought of living with the gospel in mind, not forgetting all that Christ did for us in laying down His life saying, "Keep me humble and aware of where I'd be without you, keep my heart from falling asleep." The Holy Spirit did the rest. We all really felt like this was truly a divine thing, He took over our session for sure. Definitely one of my favorite songs to date that we have written."

So, that is how the book received its’ title. Now, in case you are interested, the subtitle is a whole different story!!!
