I will Rejoice… and be glad.

So yesterday was good.

A bunch of true lifers decided to take a trip to Washington Crossing Church. By a bunch, I mean 11 of us. We piled in to a van and a car and headed on up. It was a great experience. After the closing song, a woman in the worship band ran over to us and was like… “ok, so who are you people and where did you come from” Apparently she was really blessed by how we were worshipping and stuff. It was amazing. Some of us are going back next week so thats good.

True life was good too. It was all Candlelit and we took communion. Pete talked about fasting. I tried to fast today, and totally failed. My mom made peanut butter cookies and that was it for me. I suck, but its not necessarily about fasting. Its about spending time with God. And Im going to make a point to try to do that more. Anyways last night we sang this song that really touched me, and I cant find it anywhere!! It goes like this…

“There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God 

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God
So I will rejoice

I will rejoice

And be glad

There is a fountain full of grace and it flows from Emanual’s veins

It came and it healed me

It came and refreshed me

It came and washed my sins away!

So I will rejoice

I will rejoice

And be glad.”

    I love this song so much! The first time I heard it my soul went still since I was going through the troubled waters and it wasn’t easy for me. I told my soul that God is on our side so we must rejoice and be glad irrespective of what our current situations. God bless you, William Murphy III, I love the way you worship God. I am challenged.

  21. hipps75 Says:

    Im glad that Im not the only one who loves this song. The very first I heard it at work, I had to stop doing what I was doing and just sit there and start worshipping the Lord. Im listening to it as I write this message. My fiance has never heard this song and he knows every song it is out there. When he heard it, he fell in love with it. Thanks William Murphy you are truly a man of God that knows how to worship God!!!!!!!

    Hi , I was driving down the street one day and had to pull my car into a CVS parking lot. Needless to say that tears were all around me as people watched. I was not ashame as to this song set my whole tone for that day to come. But yet this song has been my theme in life as of right now. I have survived a nearly amputated leg due to a forklift accident. While I was in the hospital , my wife had a child in which I thought was mine. It was not. When I returned home from physical rehab, she left me for 4 days to support myself. I say all this to say God’s words through such wonderful talent will always be here for his children.

  23. I was blessed by your entry…I love the song (we sing it in church ofted)..but more touched by your love for God…KEEP IN THE WORD…you sound like you are on the right path for sure.
