“Your Mission Should you Choose to Accept it!”
It was a Saturday morning in 1996, and it was one of those times Daddy said, “I feel led of the Spirit to just go!” No scheduled church service, and we didn’t no where we were headed! Bill & I were married about five years, and he already knew this meant JUST GO! 😂 We quickly packed our church clothes, gassed up the car, picked up Mom & Dad and headed from Lakeland, FL up 75 North! Bill was driving with Daddy in the passenger seat like always! A few times on the trip Bill asked Daddy if he had any idea where we were going. The answer each time was “no not yet!”
We ended up driving all day, and made it as far as north Georgia! We got a hotel for the night, woke up early Sunday morning, dressed for church, then kept driving!￼ We passed several churches along the way, but Daddy kept saying, “Keep Driving” ￼
It was a little past the usual church start time, and we were almost to the North Carolina line! Suddenly, a little Church of God on the top of a hill appeared! Daddy said, “Stop! that’s it!￼￼” The four of us walked in, and Sunday school was already in progress. None of us had ever been there, and did not know anyone. The Holyghost started moving in the Sunday school class! The teacher opened the floor for folks to comment on the lesson. The Holyghost had stirred up Moma, so she testified a little, and the glory of God came down in that little church! The pastor even had a hard time transitioning the service from Sunday school to the morning worship service! The Lord just kept moving! People were crying, and praising the Lord. A little later, the Pastor asked Daddy to “obey the Lord” Well, he testified a little, and then the Lord started using him to operate in the Gifts of the Holyghost. Remember, we knew NO ONE, and they didn’t know us! However, the SPIRIT was there to work! All of a sudden, Daddy walked over to two woman sitting to the right of the platform. He laid hands on them both, and started praying in the Spirit! He told them, “You have someone behind bars! God’s gonna set him free!” They both starting crying, raised their hands, and were rejoicing! I noticed when this happened, the Pastor also had tears rolling down his face, hands raised, and rejoicing!
After the service, we found out those two women were the Pastor’s wife & daughter in law! It was the Pastor’s son in prison, and his situation was hopeless! They had given up hope, he would ever get out! They left church that Sunday, encouraged, refreshed and believing for a miracle!
Daddy said, that’s all the Lord wanted him to do! The work was done! We left that little church on the hill that Sunday afternoon, and Bill drove us all the way back home!
You guess it, we found out later that Pastor’s son was miraculously set free, and came back home to his family! Mission Complete from My View of the Piano! PSALM 101#faith #ministry #gospel #music #christian #piano #church #mission #HolyGhost #myviewfromthepiano
