I've Got You, Babe

The Promise

"I've Got You, Babe"

A promise that was made to me

Before the foundations of the world were laid in place

A promise kept and a promise delivered

This is my testimony

A song of love


I have more questions than answers

I am just the story teller


"Deliver me out of mire and let me not sink" Psalm 69:14

On the banks of many rivers and especially the Great Nile there are many deep deposits of black mud. Should a person step into the soft mud he can be sucked down and the more he struggles the harder it is to get out.

Gasby in his travel book "Wanderings" written in the 1800's tells the story of witnessing a boat that became stuck in the shallow water. A man jumped to try and pull the boat to shore. He heard the man scream and start to struggle. He was sinking in quicksand and the more he struggled the deeper he sank. The men in the other boat quickly swam to him. By the time they managed to pull him out he had sunk to his chest in the filthy mud.


Many years ago, I lay in a coma close to death

In my dream or a vision I saw myself lying in bed

The bed was floating

I seemed to be lying on the bed held up by invisible hands

Hands I could feel but could not see

Wrapped around the bed and holding the bed firmly in place

Creating gravity that surrounded the bed

Gravity from another world

Under the bed was swirling black waters

I knew the waters represented death

It was all one image

Seeing it

Feeling it

Being it

Outside, but inside myself

A voice spoke softly into my frightened spirit

"I've got you'

"Let go"

Outside in another room my family was preparing for my death

However, God said

"Not this day"


"How can I say thanks

For the things you have done for me

Things so undeserved

Yet you prove your love for me

The voices of a thousand angels

Could not express my gratitude

All that I am or ever hope to be

I owe it all to Thee." - Andre Crouch

"Blessed is the person that endured temptation, for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love him. Let no man when he is tempted say I am tempted of God; for God can not be tempted with evil nor does he tempt any person. But every man is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust and enticed. Then when lust has conceived it brings forth sin and sin, when it is finished brings forth death." - James 1:15

The darkest waters below me

Far darker than physical death

Is the lure of sin

It is Christ alone

That delivered me from its grip.

"With His blood He has saved me

With His power He has raised me

To God be the glory for the things He has done." - Andrea Crouch


"In loving -kindness Jesus came

My soul in mercy to reclaim

And from the depths of sin and shame

Through grace He lifted me

In sinking sand He lifted me

With tender hand He lifted me

In shades of light to plains of light

Oh praise His name

He lifted me

Now on a higher plane I dwell

And with my soul I know 'tis well

Yet how or why, I cannot tell

Why He lifted me."

Oh praise His name, He lifted me. - Charles H. Gabriel

"He lifted me out of the pit of death, out of the mud and filth and set my feet on a solid rock."
