RICKY SINGS..A SONG HE DID NOT KNOW by Irvin L. Rozier

Luke 1 verse 37 "For with God nothing shall be impossible."

I have been ministering at nursing homes for over 17 years. I have seen God move mightily during these times. I want to tell you what God did yesterday...it was a genuine miracle on 10 October 2004.

Ricky is a young man in his early 40's. He is mildly mentally handicapped, but he loves to sing gospel songs. His favorite is Victory in Jesus. His voice is so sweet, although he would get the words mixed up. Charlie, a cripple at the nursing home, died over two years ago, and Ricky sang Victory in Jesus at Charlie's funeral. I had the privilege of speaking at Charlie's funeral.

A few months back, Ricky had a stroke, and it affected his speech....he quit talking. About four weeks ago, I was at the nursing home for our Sunday morning service. After the service, I saw Ricky in the hallway. I spoke to him, and asked him to sing Victory in Jesus..he did and everyone was amazed.

Well, yesterday (Sunday), I had a service at the nursing home, and Ricky was sitting in the back in his wheelchair. I always play gospel music on the stereo before we start. That morning, the LORD told me to take the CD with the music of the song I had wrote. The words to the song was not on the CD, just the music my son, Joel, had wrote.

The title of the song is "When Will the Answer Come". The first verse goes, "When will the answer come, What will the answer be, Where will I be waiting, On the LORD's answer to me, So long I've been anticipating, on the answer I'm awaiting, Many sleepless nights spent talking, To my LORD with whom I'm walking." The chorus goes, "The LORD hears and answers my prayers, I cast on Him my cares, I know somehow, somewhere, The answer will surely be there."

As the music started, I heard a sweet voice, and it was Ricky...singing the words to my song...a song he had never heard!!!...He was singing so clearly, and clapping his hands, and tapping his feet. After the song was over, he sang Victory in Jesus..in a loud and clear voice. Everyone was astonished and amazed, including the nurses who work there..Ricky sang a new song he did not know. There was barely a dry eye in that room, and the presence of the LORD was so strong and so loving and compassionate.

I know with God, nothing is impossible. By the way, when I wrote that song, it only took 10 minutes to write..I was inspired..and my son was inspired to put the music to the song. Pray that the LORD would continue to bless others through the message of this song.

Psalm 40 verse 3 "And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."
