Colors and Melodies

When I was about 8 years old I had a dream.  I can still remember the dream - at least what it looked like.  It was just a progression of solid colors: red, blue, black, green, white, repeat - with instrumental (or at least non-lyrical) music playing the entire time.  When I awoke the next morning, I can remember feeling like the dream was significant enough that I needed to tell my mom about it.

I told her, and she grabbed paper and a pencil and made some notes, and affirmed that she, too, felt like it was very significant.  The next Sunday we took her notes to my “Super Church” pastor (Ruby Short) and our senior pastor (Ronnie Moore) and shared.  A time of prayer ensued and a message in tongues came forth (from Bro. Moore, I believe) and then the interpretation came through Sister Short.

 The simple gist of it, as best as my 24-years-ago mind can remember was this: “I (the Lord) am going to use Aaron (me) through music to change the nation.”

 So, here I am, about one-hundred “He’s Still Working On Me” sunday-morning-specials-prior-to-age-twelve later and, wow, twelve years of worshiping the Lord with my guitar and voice (in public and in private).

 It probably doesn’t get much more “Beginnings” than that, for me.  Well, unless you count me walking around at age two with my Bugs Bunny Carrot microphone with built-in amplifier singing “Uhl fly ‘way - Oh! Glory!”.

Aaron, It is amazing how God works! This message to Ruby Short may bring about her complete healing! I have watched her struggle through her other cancer and the Godly faith and attitude that she held fast to. She has been a blessing to us at the bank. Thank you for obeying God and contacting Vicky about the prayer request. I called Ruby and and gave her your cell number.

God Bless You!

To fill you in on what Brenda is talking about. I received an e-mail today from the prayer chain at The River Fellowship in Alma about a prayer request for a “Ruby Short” who had a recurrance of cancer. I have tried recently to find a way to contact them, but couldn’t find them in phone books, online, etc - just to encourage them about the seeds they planted in my life and (in faith) the fruit it is now bearing.

One of the things the Lord told me I would be doing in this season of full-time ministry is “singing over the sick”… so, wow… what an opportunity. I’ll probably make a whole post on this later.

Lord, we ask for Ruby’s complete and total healing. Lord, if there’s something we need to do to “gain this place of intercession”, please, let us know, and give us the empowering grace to obey.
