  1. The Ripping


    It all started so casually
    With a hey if you are not busy
    We are having a revival at our church
    You are more than welcome to come

    I had so many other things to do
    But my heart led me down the road
    To a seat in a pew

    I listened to the preacher speak
    I heard the words
    Cutting like a knife into my heart

    The message that I was to hear
    That the Lord had planned for me
    Was loud and clear

    Trust God in Radical Uncertainty
    Me? The one who has believed
    But still had this piece deep within
    That would not let go
    That had caused so much despair

    The waves will come crashing he said
    The trials, the tests, the tribulations
    But understand he spoke
    He is there
    He has your vision for you

    Keep taking the steps
    One at a time
    Go where he may lead

    Who would have known
    That a man that traveled so far
    From another state
    Would speak to me with such clarity

    The altar call came
    I got out of my comfort zone
    And kneeled and bowed my head

    The tears flowed
    A voice began to speak
    God loves you
    He is with you
    Trust in him
    Give it all to him

    Hands touched my shoulders
    Ever so lovingly
    I looked up
    Her eyes were looking at me
    With such love and comfort

    He does love you
    And you can give it all to him
    We are taking it tonight
    That piece that you will not let go of
    The piece that you are holding onto so tight

    A circle of light and love surrounded me
    The prayers flowed from all
    We rebuke you Satan
    You are not welcome here

    We ask you Lord to take it all
    Whatever it is deep within this sister
    Take it dear Lord
    You know what it is
    You have known
    We give it to you tonight
    It is done dear Lord

    There is no more uncertainness welcome here
    All that is welcome here is your love
    Your grace and your love
    You never leave us
    You never forsake us
    You are there
    You know the vision you have
    The greatest being the vision of eternity

    As I stood up
    I prayed thanks and blessings
    It was like the boulder that held me down
    Had been lifted

    I was free
    Finally I was free
    I was free of it all
    All that held me back
    From grabbing hold
    Of what the Lord has waiting for me

    I am thankful for all the new found friends
    At the Church of God and for Mark
    That the Lord led me to tonight
    To them I say
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart

    But most of all
    I thank you Lord
    For all that I have is from you

    I look forward to each new day
    As you guide me
    To the heights of the Vision you have for me!

    A voice began to speak

    God loves you
    He is with you
    Trust in him
    Give it all to him
    Amen x 10!:)

    Faithwoman, that was a beautiful, beautiful post! Most of us here have a similar story of repentance to tell. It is so good to be in God's hands isn't it? Thanx for sharing.
