Dear Mr. Adams,
As far as I know, we have never met. I don’t know anything about you except that you wrote only one song in the song book used here at the prison. I don’t know if you have written hundreds of other songs, or if God just called you to write this one. Many people in the Bible seem to only have been called on by God to accomplish one thing with their life. He used Bezaleel to build the furniture for the tabernacle.
Exodus 31:2-5 “2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: 3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, 5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.”
It doesn’t say what he did after that. Maybe it doesn’t matter. That one job was enough to bless millions for many years to come.
I just wanted to let you know that your song, “Where the Spirit of the Lord Is” has blessed and helped me greatly. As you said in the song, God’s Spirit will give comfort in life’s darkest hour. Thanks for that reminder. I know that millions have had it so much worse than me over the centuries and that Christians today, especially in America, are weak, soft, spoiled, and not ready in the least for real trials or tribulation, but even so, there have been plenty of “dark hours” for me in the last few years and your song has been a blessing beyond words. Thanks for writing it.
If you read this, please write to me, and let me know what motivated you to write that song, and tell me a little bit about yourself. If you did nothing else for the Lord with your life, that song will still live on and reap a harvest for the kingdom. It has comforted me greatly in my dark hours. I get letters telling how my simple creation videos have helped people to be drawn to the Lord. It is such a blessing to hear that God has, is, and will continue to use our feeble efforts for His glory!
I only play the piano with two fingers, and very slowly at that. It is a rainy day here. I haven’t seen my wife of 36 years in over two years. The government is attempting to destroy our ministry if they can. Certainly, the press has not been our friend! Yet, God has sustained us through it all. Even if this is the only song you have written, I pray it will motivate thousands to do something, even if only one thing, for Christ. I just came from the totally deserted Chapel where I sat and played it over and over. God used it to comfort me. Thanks! I thought you might need to know.
