If you have been wandering due to lack of faith, this is your time to come out of the shadows and “Into the Light!”
Only a glimmer of Light needs to shine through, in order for one’s heart to be opened.
Right now, with all the negativity in the world, I encourage you to let go of all judgment, brokenness, and unworthiness and taken in Jesus’ promise…
“Holy Father, all who belong to me now belong to you. And all who belong to you now belong to me as well, and my glory is revealed through their surrendered lives. I am about to leave this world to return and be with you, but your children will remain here. So I ask that by the power of your name; protect each one that you have given me, and watch over them so that they will be united as one, even as we are one.” (Jn. 17:10)
On this Son Day for Sunday, As Children of a Loving God, We Are One…
Several years ago, while attending a small church I heard this wondrous song, “We Are One”. I have loved this song and searched for a copy of it for a long time. The song was originally recorded for the World Children’s Day celebration, in the 1980’s.
In 2005, I did some research and found an address and phone number of the original songwriter, Mari John Wilkin.* I called and left a message on the answering machine.
A few days later, while driving home, my phone rang. I am not inclined to answer the phone while driving, but felt a nudge from Spirit to pick it up.
On the other end of the phone I hear a sweet voice, “Is this Reverend Zorn?” and I said, “Yes”. She said, “This is Mari John Wilkin”. “You called me about the song, ‘We are One.’ I am sorry I did not get back to you sooner, but I just had cataract surgery and I don’t come into the office very often. I was so thrilled to hear from you”.
I was honored to hear from her and felt such a presence during our conversation. I told Ms. Wilkin the story of how I had been searching for this song for years. She told me it was God that connected us.
Ms. Wilkin said, “I don’t have the song on CD will a cassette do?” I told her anything would do. Then she said she might not have the recording by the original artist who recorded it for World Children’s Day, if it is not available, would I be interested in her recording. I told her I would take whatever she had. God blessed me that day.
The song is timeless. I hope you enjoy it and pray you will see yourself as a Child of God, and with the Father, Son & Holy Shekinah Spirit, “We Are One!”
*(At the time of our conversation, this wonderful lady was 85 and passed away in 2006.)
