“Bring Me To My Knees”, (Mike and Toni’s Song)

(Joel 2:28)”And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy…”

My son Chris wrote a song a few years ago in 2008 with his band, ‘asforme’. I didn’t know it at the time, but I know it now -it was prophesy. It is called, Bring Me To My Knees , but it should be called, Mike and Toni’s Song.

Here is a sneak preview to the end of the song first,
“The night is dark and cold,but still the morning comes…
the night is dark and cold, but still the morning comes…
But in this day, I will rejoice, knowing I will breathe again, and in this day I will rejoice and
I will love you more.”

God has allowed for Mike and myself to experience a long night that is cold and dark. Some of you might relate, because you have experienced a time of darkness, yet ‘still the morning comes.’ The Lord continues to hold us. And ‘In this day, I will rejoice, knowing I will breathe again. And in this day I will rejoice. And I will love You more.” The Lord is faithful, holding us in His hands, our love is ever growing.

Do you ever ask, “How long, O Lord? will You be silent…?

The song: Bring Me To My Knees, (Mike and Toni’s Song), by asforme.

How long O Lord will You be silent? Will You forget me?
How long O Lord, will You be silent? Will You hide Your face from me?

I thought I knew You better than this. So why can’t I hear You?
I thought I knew You better than this, so I’m crying out to You.

“Bring me to my knees until I breathe, until I hear You, and take me to my face until I break – “I’m lost without You!”

I thought I knew You better than this, so why can’t I hear You? I thought I knew You better than this…
“Bring me to my knees until I breathe, until I hear You. And take me to my face until I break -I’m lost without You!”
(Bridge) The night is dark and cold, but still the morning comes. The night is dark and cold, but still the morning comes…”Bring me to my knees until I breathe, until I hear You. Take me to my face, ‘till I break, I’m lost without You!

“But in this day, I will rejoice, knowing I will breathe again. But in this day I will rejoice, and I will love You more.”

Do you feel afflicted with great trial? (Isaiah 53:4,5)Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted…
Why would God allow suffering?
(Isaiah 53:5) He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
Did Jesus know a dark and cold night?
(Is. 53:7)He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth.

”All we like sheep have gone astray;(Is. 53:6).
Well God in His mercy knew that ‘before I was afflicted I went astray’

“But now I keep Your Word.” …and in this day I will rejoice, and I will love You more.
