We wanted to include an addendum to yesterday’s post sharing Shawna Edwards’ new Easter song, “The Miracle”. (We were so anxious to share it that we didn’t get all of the information we would have wanted to share with it.)
First, we wanted to share some of Shawna’s thoughts as she wrote “The Miracle.”
We often talk about the wondrous miracles of Jesus Christ — walking on the water, healing the blind, raising the dead. I started out to write this song about those miracles. But as I began crafting the lyrics and the message, I realized — His greatest miracle by far is the one He did for us, for me. “The miracle that rescues me.” I wanted to make it clear how personal the Atonement is to me, how uniquely suited for my needs, my inadequacies, and my struggles, as it is for yours. My name was graven on His hands. And yours was, too.
You can read more about how this song came to be at the Shawna Edwards website.
Secondly, Shawna has often been asked for sheet music of her songs. She is offering a free copy of the sheet music or an MP3 of the recording; she simply asks people to share a thought or two about the Savior and His sacrifice for us. How is Jesus a God of miracles in your own life? What does His sacrifice, His Atonement, His resurrection mean personally to you?
You can share your thoughts as a comment on Shawna’s website (for her Easter song, share at “The Miracle” forum or at the link shown above) or you can share via a post on your own blog/website. If you do the latter, we hope you’ll also embed the video of her song so others can enjoy it…and then be sure to leave a comment letting her know you have posted your thoughts (with a link so she can read them!) She has expressed how her life has been blessed as others from many faiths have shared their faith in Jesus Christ. (p.s. If you haven’t yet heard it, you might also enjoy “Do You Have Room?”)
Be sure when you comment that you leave a valid email address and specify in your comment which form of the music you prefer.
**Please respect copyright laws and Shawna’s generosity by refraining from making extra copies of the sheet music or MP3.**
