I wanted to share this song with you. It’s about one of my favourite chapters in the Bible, and it’s by someone called Godfrey Birtill – a man I was introduced to about 11 years ago.
This has always been one of my favourite Godfrey songs and, on a personal note, Godfrey has a special place in my heart because he’s the one who prayed my own song-writing into being.
I couldn’t write original songs before I was a Christian – lyrics or tunes, but never both. I tried to; I listened to a radio-series on song-writing over 6 Sunday afternoons, but the more I listened, the more it seemed to go over my head.
Then along came Godfrey, to lead a worship-weekend. Sunday afternoon, and there was a workshop on song-writing. At the end, people went to the front for prayer. I don’t remember all he said, but 3 days later, out came my first song.
Sometimes people tell me how clever I am to write songs, but I know it’s not my cleverness; it’s God’s enabling. He gives good gifts to His children, and song-writing is one of my favourites He’s given me.
So, now it’s your turn. Were you reading this, eager to share about a gift God has given you? Please feel free. Your stories and answers to prayer could greatly encourage somebody else.
