    I lOVE this story! I'm looking for a "share" botton to put it on my page. Love the song. Really love the new album, "Invisible".

    Must tell you something! had a vision this morning while I was waiting for my grandson to get ready for school; at one point I wasn't sure it was real, so I dropped to my knees and prayed for discernment and a sign from God and I opened my email and here was this video. Now keep in mind that this is the first time I have received a video from faithlife, I have its app on my phone but have never gotten an email. In this vision there is a little girl in trouble and I will help her if I'm allowed. Please pray with me for her that God shows her to me and gives me the opportunity to help her! This is not a joke, I'm asking that whomever reads this to "touch and agree".

    Very neat story. Love the pro-life angle to it. But I still don't understand the lyrics. What does this mean?

    Let love explode and bring the dead to life
    A love so bold to see a revolution somehow
