Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:
I was a bit bored with traditional musical instruments after God's blessings of 6 great new songs in 14 days (with the 2 studios that God  has provided).  And these lyrics would be boring, I felt, with straight music. 

    So I started experimenting with some synthesizer loops, editing them to meet the 'feel' of the words.  The first loops I tried were pretty awful!   But I enjoyed the laughter, sort of like God's gift of a joke to make me laugh in my sadness. And I've enjoyed the music foundations that comprise the final song tracks.

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:
        I'd had a very (very)  sorrow-filled four days, wondering about whether God was really blessing this music ministry, considering all of the many many technical questions all 4 music teams were having.  I did not want to even answer the telephone lest there be yet another problem.  I did not want to even walk into my home studio, lest I discover yet another software or instrument problem.  So, instead, I spent an entire Saturday just excitedly drenching myself in the joy of looking for patterns in Psalms.  One of my long-standing fervent prayers has been to bring God's music to His Word again... so many people like me learn better when scriptures are in  patterns like music. 

    So I was searching for Psalms to form into the lyrics set format from which I later work at an instrument to write new music... with God's help, of course.  The internet was still down -- I couldn't even use easy online concordances.      I searched “the old way”  to find a special verse that I knew was in God's Word that  I most assuredly needed:
   Jesus's promise to us all through Paul's words in Second Corinthians 12: 9  >>>>

“My Grace is sufficient for You, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

    In that time of weakness, I was looking up Acts 4:31 for another song, and “somehow” --- and of course I consider it a “God-how” --- I noticed that this entire section of Acts 4 could be summed up in 4-word sentences.  I love patterns... learn better in patterns... and thus God led me to write out this song's lyrics in minutes.

Dedicated to our Real Church Leader, 12 January 2012

“... the Gentiles and the people of Israel were gathered together... And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was SHAKEN; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.  Now the multitude of those who believed were of  ONE HEART  and  SOUL.”  ACTS 4.
