When I went through my separation and subsequent divorce, I felt pretty alone, not knowing what to do or where to go. Right about that time, they released a song called “Revelation:”
“Gimme a revelationI needed a revelation, and over time, just at the right time, I got one. It wasn’t often the dramatic, thunder and lightning, pillar of cloud by day and fire by night thing, but I got through those days one at a time.
Show me what to do
Cause I’ve been trying to find my way
I haven’t got a clue
Tell me should I stay here
Or do I need to move
Gimme a revelation
I’ve got nothing without you”
In the midst of that turmoil, other of their songs, based on Psalm 36, gave me a focal point outside my circumstances.
“Your love, oh LordI remember sometimes just walking around singing that song in my head. It brought me a lot of comfort.
Reaches to the heavens
Stretches to the skies"
Long about the time I described in Day 10, I found a song on their “Revelation” album that was not released as a single. It said, in part:
“Yesterday I foundIt would take me a couple of years to find the one who would be that new day for me, but she was worth the wait!
That everything I knew was wrong
It was upside-down
The life I thought I had was gone
But you came and whispered love to me
And you gave me strength to carry on
And oh, the sun is shining
And oh, a new day’s dawning”
