A Miraculous Meeting In The Woods

“In March of 2018, after an insane week at the office, I desperately needed some time alone with God. When Saturday rolled around, I felt the need to hike to one of my favorite God-spots, a bluff overlooking a river valley. There, I unburdened myself to God. After we’d spent about an hour together, I began to feel rejuvenated and joyful. Then, suddenly, it was just like He said, “Child, it’s time to go.” I resisted. I sat there for a few minutes until I realized His Spirit was walking up the hill away from me. My inward rebel girl finally said, “Fine, I’m coming,” and I reluctantly followed Him up to the trail. I knew if He was leaving, there was not really any point in staying.”

It was a decision which broke the dam for a waterfall of unexpected blessings.

Song + Lyrics

VERSE 1
There’s a land that is fairer than day
And by faith we can see it afar
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there

REFRAIN
In the Sweet By and By
we shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

VERSE 2
We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blest
And our spirits shall sorrow no more
Not a sigh for the blessings of rest

REFRAIN
In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

VERSE 3
To our bountiful Father above
We will offer our tribute of praise
For the glorious gifts of his love
And the blessings that hallow our days

REFRAIN
In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

In the Sweet By and By
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
