I waited for so long, part I


Hey, hey, hey!
G'day mates! Hola amigos!
Tonight, being 1:32 a.m. I am online listening to one of the most beautiful albums in the world: On the shores by Jonathan and Melissa Helser.
Have you ever felt like music comes to your life to be the soundtrack of it? Yes, like in the movies!
Well, this is exactly how I felt a couple of days ago.
Ryan was super excited when this album was released (deep in his heart, he still wants to be a reporter and write for the Rolling Stones magazine or something similar - I know he'll write about the music in heaven sometime soon, which is so much exponentially cooler!), he played the songs a few times and I still couldn't click or simply fall at the lyrics because I could hear lots of shouting and truly, my phlegmatic temperament, my quiet heart beating slowlier than normal and my inherited passivity led me to rather stay away from that music for a bit.
One afternoon when I just wanted to collapse in the couch, Ryan came super excited to tell me the story behind a song called "explode my soul" and I heard the story, not really paying attention to the song.
2 days ago, while in the kitchen, I thought of the story and then heard the song and BAM! It hit me!
She screams at the top of her voice "I waited for so long just to sing this song".
Her story is that she spent 8 years without being able to play the guitar because of a psoriatic arthritis and finally God healed her (using a breakthrough medication), her husband gave her an acoustic guitar and she wrote that song that night.
"What He promised is what He gave!"
"Hello Promise Land ... I waited for sooooo loooong...."
What was revealed to my heart is God gave me a promise which I understood partly, it was the confirmation for Ryan and me to start this relationship, but it was so much deeper, a prophecy to be accomplished word by word in over two years...
