"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

On Tuesday, I did my devotional and sang and played Revelation Song on my new guitar at work as planned.

I was more nervous this time than ever before. Felt the powers of the enemy attack me beforehand with feelings of unworthiness, that I should NOT be be doing this song because of the way I have been feeling lately and acting lately. Condemning me all the way.

Despite feeling so far away from God, being angry at Him at times recently, and just being real before Him.......He still showed up. Something about the Holy Spirit, He always follows me no matter what I am going through....His Spirit still entered the room. Nothing keeps Him back when His children are praising Him. He can use you no matter how you are feeling. He sees your heart despite your pain and anger.

I also did not expect the response I received from my co-workers after.

Had a full house of over 45 people including the president of the company. Before playing the song, I spoke a bit about what the song is based on, Revelation 8, and the writer of the song tells of her 10 year prayer for the song. She asked the Holy Spirit to help her write a song that painted Him; a song that the angels and creation were already singing, so that we could join in with One Voice, as One Bride to One King.

After wards, I was bombarded with one-on-one responses from some of my co-workers plus in-house emails saying how the song blessed and touched their hearts.

Not everyone is a strong Christian where I work. The ones that did respond who are weaker in faith with such heartfelt sincerity, I knew only the Holy Spirit could touch them the way He did. His touching of others, encouraged me as well.

I did not get such a response from the past times I did a song. Well, for one thing it was not Revelation Song. That song does something to people. I know it does to me. I just barely got through it. Only God!

Also below are three one minute renditions each I recorded from my computer of me singing and playing "Revelation Song," one being just an instrumental and "Breathe."

The sound quality is not good, very tinny, in mono and you may have to download a plug-in. All depends on your computer. But, you get some idea what it sounded like.


REVELATION SONG-instrumental


My new guitar.

Me at home with my new baby.


  1. Well done AGAIN :-))) I know we can be our worst enemy and very well master selfsabotage. However you have teh awareness and manage each time better - and all this feedback. Isnt that just FABULOUS. Hugs from Germany

  2. Revelation song is a very anointed song. Amen! He's the only One Who can touch those even the ones with weak faith. Nice strumming and vocals JBR! Thank you for sharing some pics! And yes, He is faithful to be there for us. He truly never leaves us like what He promised. God bless you JBR and are you composing your own songs? Take care.

    JBR I'm amazed. You've got talent.

  4. So good that you performed like that for everyone! That is a nice guitar, keep having fun with it.


  5. I'm sorry I couldn't open up the links. It froze my computer.....Praising God though for the Holy Spirit not only touching you but so many that day...

  6. Oh congrats JBR. All we have to do is be a willing vessel and then the Holy Spirit does the work.

  7. I praise GOD for the anointing HE placed on you. HE certainly is using you...all the while continuing to faithfully heal your heart.

    What a beautiful guitar!

    Hugs, andrea

  8. God is using you in way you probably never dreamed of JBR. Go with his calling, despite your feelings. God Bless.

  9. beautiful guitar.... and its great, wonderful, awesome to know that your music blessed so many people:)

  10. What a delight to finally hear you sweetie. You're truly a blessing to many.

  11. Sorry, couldn't listen to the song...I was afraid to try something new with my computer so I chose not to "open" it....However, I didn't know that you performed in public. when I saw that you got a new guitar I just assumed it was a new "hobby"...little did I know! I notice you are shy of the camera. Shine your best face forward and be proud of your sweet self.

  12. Congrats to you my dear friend !!
    You are such a blessing, thanks for sharing.

  13. I'm impressed. Glad you were able to get the word out as well and lift the name of Jesus up. some day show us your face. :)

  14. How wonderful. It's amazing to me how God always shows up when I invite him. Thanks for sharing. (((Hugs)))

  15. OMG! It sounds so beautiful!!!! I am just amazed! You have definitely made me smile today girlfriend! Great job!!!!

  16. God does have a wonderful way of standing by us and working through us no matter how we are personally feeling. He is forever faithful. It is a true blessing.

  17. That is an amazing testimony of God's faithfulness. I absolutely love your guitar. So beautiful and perfect for you. :)


  18. I bet if you'd have more time with recording your material it would really be awesome. Try and look into other programs on the internet where you can download your material for a longer period of time. What you've share is good. I sense God is leading you somewhere with your music.

  19. Took me a few tries and downloading a plug in, but got to hear you. Your a singing testimony to the Lord. Keep it up. Looki at its part of your recovery. You never know how God's going to uuse you.

  20. Good for you, JBR! The enemy was afraid cause he did not want you doing this for the glory of God...blessing the hearts of others...and receiving a blessing yourself...

    Your guitar is beautiful...but not as beautiful as your heart....

  21. Beautiful guitar. Love the post. God can use any of us to bless others no matter what's going on with us. Glory to God for what you did.

    Brings to mind this scripture 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
    God Bless

  22. JBRE hey girl I'm proud of you. Haven't been on line in a couple of months. All the best.

  23. Congrats sweetie, love you.

  24. Nice guitar! The music is awesome and can minister to people in a way nothing else can.

  25. That's a gorgeous looking guitar.. you have got talent, there's a gentleness in the music.

    Be strong, be at peace.

  26. The guitar is sure stealing compliments but then it is incomplete without the guitarist. Just like how we are incomplete without our smile and our maker.

    Congrats JBR. Would have loved to look at you playing that lovely black guitar.

    Joy and love always,

  27. Rejoicing with you !
    Hugs, GG

  28. Oh honey, my heart rejoices for how he is using and working in you.


  29. Way cool! I'm so glad you recognized that the unworthiness the enemy tried to put on you is a lie from hell. God ALWAYS welcomes us. He knows we're not perfect.

    Listened to your song...very heartfelt and real! So glad you're keeping it real...

  30. Good morning, Precious One~

    God certainly is AMAZING! How wonderful that you were used in such a way to touch the hearts of so many. You gave them just what they needed to hear at just the right moment.


    Blessings and ((((HUGS))))~

  31. Glad it went well and that you were able to bless so many with the song. Great job!

  32. God is great. He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves.

  33. Your pictures are what I imagine we will look like when we are up in heaven playing to Our Father...good for you JBR...It looks GREAT on you...the guitar AND the peace ;=o)

  34. I loved your statement that God still shows up...no matter what we are going through He still follows us. He still sees your heart despite your pain and anger. That spoke volumes to me, and I LOVE your new guitar and the peace it is going to bring you! Janie

  35. I love the statement that God always follows us no matter where we go...in spite of our pain and anger he sees our hearts. I Love your new guitar and am grateful for the blessing you received the day you played. janie
