There are moments from my awakening that are crystal clear. Moments when I prayed so hard to God to help me find my way.
One of those moments happened at Agape in the fall of 2001 when Bridgette Bryant sang this song, Rolling River God. It may have only been my first or second time attending Agape and I was there by myself. With the first stroke of the piano, I could feel the tears begin to fall. When she began singing the words, I began softly weeping. She was singing my prayer to God. I can’t even tell you how many times I listened to this song in the following months. Every time I listened I would cry again, praying that I would find my soul amidst the pieces of my life. Everything was falling away and there were no guarantees that I would feel whole on the other side of these changes. All I had were my prayers to God to help me find my way.
This song was my companion during that time. It is with love that I share it with you.
