Making the Shift from Songwriter to Movement Writer- A Word by Dean Mitchum
If you’ve been struggling with songwriters block it may be time to make a
shift from being a songwriter to becoming a movement writer.
You’re called to burn like a star but you feel more like a candle. The
fire of the current worship movement is slowly losing its heat and
you’re searching for something new.
Psalm 45:1 (NKJV)
My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
Maybe you need a new position to write from. Maybe you need a to
perspective to write from. Maybe God is calling you out like a star
because your flame needs a whole new source with a new kind of fuel.
The fuel of a movement writer.
2 Samuel 23:2 (NKJV)
“The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, And His word was on my tongue.
Movement Writers write songs that cause the church to move forward.

Movement Writers hear the conflict between what is and what is to be.
They are prophetic and write toward the future. They seek the sound of
home. They write to resolve the conflict and fulfill the expectation of
Characteristics of a Movement Writer
- They are awakened by new revelation. When prophets and apostles
preach new messages of revelation something awakens within the
songwriter and they want to put that message to music.
- They carry the spirit of the revelation, not just write it. As
movement writers we don’t just put that message to music, it is
something that we have revelation of and the authentic authority
rings true in the sound of the song.
- They write for more revelation. There’s something incredible that
happens when we write. It seems to release more revelation (Ps
- They write toward the future, generations ahead. David demonstrated
new covenant worship for future generations. His songs prophesied
about Jesus. This is why Acts 15:16 declared God was restoring the
Tabernacle of David.
- They burn with a musical fire to prophesy. They prophesy on the
instruments. They prophesy through songwriting. They prophesy
according to the order of the King. The very words of their songs
bring life through the voice of the Lord (2 Chron. 25 1-3).
- They are compelled to cause change. David wrote his way to a new
day. In the midst of a cave and hiding from Saul song of change and
breakthrough (Ps 57:8).
- They Understand the connection between sound and movement. Sound is
movement and movement causes sound. When God stirs and move he
releases new sound to go with that movement.
The Sound of the Third Reformation
Within the third global apostolic reformation movement is a worship
reformation movement. That worship reformation is transitioning us from
the Tabernacle of David to the Tabernacle of God.
This is where the new perspective and positioning is found. The
Tabernacle of God from Rev. 21.3 is the seed for writing the next
As Acts 15:16 was key to the discovery of David’s tabernacle, Rev. 21.3
is the seed to discovering God’s tabernacle.
God is calling forth a new generation of songwriting movement writers.
They are not content to write songs that only comfort they are burning
to write songs that awaken the worshipers and move the church forward.
This is your next awakening. This is your next reformation. This is
your next movement. Join the movement, write the movement!
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
