Topic: Unsung Hero (12/07/06)

TITLE: Sing Aloud
By Yvonne Willis


Unsung hero

Lord, please help me and give me the strength to open my mouth to sing and tell the world all that I hold so deep inside. The song that burns within my sanctified soul that constantly jumps up and down anxiously anticipating the right moment to be released. I want to scream it out aloud at the top of my lungs to a dying nation thatís filled with so much anger, hatred, jealousy, envy, and deceit.

If I can only open my mouth and sing and tell the world that if you only believe that we all are here to help and learn from one another. Itís not about black or white, rich or poor, Jew, Methodist, Pentecostal, Muslim or Catholic. We have to lay aside our prejudices of one another the prejudice that fills a deep bottomless pit of nothingness.

If I can mange to reach way down deep within me and pull out the unconditional love song that has been transferred into me spiritually from my fatherís blood that was shed on Calvaryís cross. The rugged cross which lifted up our Savior high when he took our sins upon himself and He gave up the Ghost and then died. Yes, that blood that was shed thousand of years ago is alive today ready to wash all your sins away. This special blood that dripped from our saviorís body when they pierced him in his side is flowing constantly until it reaches you and saturate your entire being and immediately wash all your sins away. The blood is filled with power that can save anyone no matter what situation you may be in. Yes, even a drug addict who depends on drugs to get over the memories of constantly being abused emotionally, physically, and mentally from someone you love so much. It will wash away the hurt and guilt of feeling alone and lonely and free you from the desire of jumping from bed to bed looking for love in all the wrong places, putting your trust in the wrong faces, and sin that will lead you to dirty dark places.

Tears began to roll down my check remembering what I read in the bible about a man who loved me even when I turned my back on him and did what ever I wanted to do. So I cry out now and ask; Lord, please help me to open my mouth and sing with boldness and tell the world that Jesus loves them and He is waiting on you, and he said. ďI am Jesus who has touched your lips, now open them and sing aloud. You are released to sing to the world you are free from the title called the unsung hero.Ē

I give you credit for coming across with the salvation message so badly needed to be sung!

Your gratitude for the Lord's grace is evident. You express yourself eloquently. Keep praising Him and keep writing!

You write very eloquently, and your message is great. I would suggest not being quite so wordy though.
