I arose this morning somewhat late for church. In fact, I never made it. But, that did not stop my communion with God. As I got up and showered and sat down at the table. Loudly and clearly, I heard the voice say, the words. No it wasn’t my conscience, it doesn’t speak like that. It was very clear and distinct and words came together forming the lyrics of a song.
Sometimes I dabble in writing lyrics. I have for many years. A frustrated poet you might say. Working with words, critiquing papers, laying out memories are a joy. But this time it was different. Sometimes it is a struggle which requires writing and rewriting. Not this time. The words were clear and the melody was a ballad on Acoustic.
“When my father died, what was I to do? My mother said, “There is a lesson inside, Look to the Lord and He’ll be your guide…”" It flowed out, 5 verses a refrain and a break. No doubt these were the Lord’s words; ending in “Love will set you free.”. What a beautiful thought, “Love will set you free.” And the Bible tells us it is the “Truth” that will set us free. But God’s truth, revealed through the gift of His son, Jesus, is Love. And, “Love will set you free!.” If you believe.
No I won’t reveal the words of the song here. They will be set to music and sung for His glory and honor. Praise Him.
