My children and I have been reading through the Bible together, along with our church family. We are now reading through the book of Daniel. As we are reading, I am learning great truths and drawing ever closer to My Father. It is an amazing feeling of peace and calm. However, as we are reading, songs I remember from a young girl kept popping into my head.
When I was a little girl, we went to church for the big holidays. We did attend regularly for a while, but my mom was a nurse and as a single parent with the ever changing hours, our attendance began to taper off. When my brother left home, he was in search of God. Some horrible things had happened in his life and he was having a hard time trusting God and yet he knew his answers were wrapped up in God. So he began a journey that led him into a couple of cults, but he had the protection of God and fled from those. He then found himself among a group of Christians that was able to help him find some answers. There was still a lot of hypocrisy within this group and he did eventually leave it too, but before he did, he bought me a gift. This gift was MY first MAJOR introduction to God. I listened to that cassette tape daily until it would no longer play and whenever I read certain stories within the Bible, I begin to hum these songs that helped me learn of the truths of God long before I ever opened a Bible and read it for myself.
I have been looking for this book and cassette for many years; at least since I was about 14 years old. I have searched high and low looking, but to no avail. All I had in my head and heart were tunes. I could remember a few words, but I could not remember titles at all.
Today was one of those days after our reading that one of the songs popped into my head and I began to hum along. Then I began to search through google trying desperately hard to locate this gift..... Just as I was about to give up, and I did say Lord I'm never going to find this am I? Then I prayed, Lord please let me find this, it may be very small, but this means so much to me. At that moment, the very first song on the list came to mind, along with words. WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, THOSE WORDS WERE ACTUALLY THE TITLE TO THE ENTIRE MUSICAL!!!!!!!!!! I began to search frantically for it and after only 3 minutes of additional searching, I found it!!!! All I could do was shout praises and thanks to God and tears streaming down my face. My kids thought I was crazy and that something must be really wrong with me, but they will never understand the treasure within this children's musical. I loved God then with a child's heart of purity. This was the best moment of my childhood and I had lost all touch with it. Now, I was in touch with it once again. I hope to purchase it very soon and share it with my nephews and nieces and give them an awesome introduction to this Great God we serve. TIME TUNNEL when you scroll down, it's the second book on the list and you can listen to clips of each song!!!!
