Often, I listen to music I have recorded from the Bush. This is one of my favorites. We were at a little church - it was very early in the morning. I was outside the church drinking tea and journaling when I started hearing a single drum from inside the church. I'm not sure why I started recording - I guess I was just fooling around with the camera??? Following the drum beat, I heard one of our translators start singing from inside the church. As the song went on, more and more people began to filter into the church and continued joining in on the singing. Later some children showed up and they joined in as well. By the time the song was over, the church was full of people ready to begin the service....This was the beginning of one of the sweetest days in the bush. The service was great...there were people who made confessions of faith...we baptized a few...and we left knowing God had been with us.
The song says "I'm set free in the blood of Jesus...I was tied to the chains of the devil...I'm set free in the blood of Jesus".
Every time I play this song, I am reminded of that day...I wish I could bottle it - and share the full flavor of that day with you.
Listen as the song progresses and the church fills with people.
I woke up one day and discovered God wanted me to quit what I was doing for me...and start doing something for Him.
