River Is Rising

Michael W. Smith has a song titled 'River Is Rising.' It's MWS and a choir and a fast beat...

I feel it, I feel It, I feel It
In my bones and I just don't think I can hold it anymore

The river is rising flowing out of me
And I'm coming alive, I'm coming alive

I'm gonna dance and sing and move my feet,
cause the river is rising, flowing out of me

Got to let the world know take it to the streets
Got to dance and sing and add a shout of praise!

Hallelujah the river is rising

This is how I've been feeling lately. I feel it in my bones. I feel like God has a humungo plan for all of this; I know it. Almost like a kid on Christmas morning, that anticipation they feel, that antsy-ness, that excitement because they don't know what 'gift' they are going to find under the tree.

I don't know what 'gift' I am going to find at the feet of Christ. I know it's good. I can feel it.

I want to take this 'curse' and see it as a blessing! I want to grab it with both hands, hold it in front of me and see what happens.

You know in the movie 'Field of Dream' where James Earl Jones KNOWS people will come and he has this vision of all that is going to happen? I feel like James Earl Jones. I doubt people will show up at my house, pay $20 to see me.... but his passion about his vision is how I feel. James knew it and I know it. (That's the best part of the movie.. gives me chills.)

I prayed a while back for a purpose. And it seems I got my answer. I now have a mission field as long as it's cool outside! haha


  1. And if at all possible I will ride for you in the MS 150. I'm sorry that it's you I'll be riding for but very glad I have a way to help in your mission field. You are right...God does have a plan for you, and it is going to be good!!


  2. Kim told me about the MS. I know there is nothing I can say except sorry. I will keep you all in my prayers! =0)
