This songs just stirs something in me. Listening to Ronnie sing this song provokes me to think about all the supporters who stop in and out of our neighborhood to remind us they are praying for us or thinking about us..or
the little girl who is fatherless, who was being raised by her grandmother( who is dead now) because her mom is unable to take care of her..now left to be raised by her young uncle, who has no idea what he is doing, but really trying to do the best he can..she looks me in the eyes everyday when I pick her and Kai up from school and she smiles and says "Mrs. Nicole, I really like coming home with you and Kaiya". I also think about the prostitute that knocks on my door asking my husband to fix her a sandwich because she has no money to eat..or the family that my husband encouraged to go away for a weekend to a christian retreat, and to see them RUN in my door this afternoon faces swollen due to tears of JOY over the LORD revealing himself to them. ( i wish you could see the goose bumps on my arms)
In the chorus of this song Ronnie sings :"
"I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry."
"O LORD our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God....."
