Onontkoombaar

Soms word je met de neus op het feit gedrukt dat bepaalde delen van het fundament van je (geloofs)leven altijd bij je zullen blijven.
Wat de omstandigheden dan ook mogen zijn, je komt er nooit meer van af.
Vorige week heb ik kennis gemaakt met dit lied van Danny FlowersBorn to Believe heet het.
Dwars door het hoge kitschgehalte van de tekst heen hoorde en voelde ik de onontkoombare waarheid. I was born to believe in You.
De leer van de onweerstaanbare genade vertolkt door een steel-gitaar.

I was born to believe in you (2x)
Well, this feeling that I’m feeling
Is all the proof I need
I’m here to testify
To the joy you’ve given me
I was born to believe in you.

You made the sun to shine
You made the birds to sing
I see your precious love
Flowing through everything
Well, this feeling that I’m feeling
Is all the proof I need
I’m here to testify
To the joy you’ve given me
I was born to believe in you.

Well I was stranded at the crossroads in the driving rain
I was taking some shelter from this world of pain
It was through your mercy Lord I was awakened at once
I felt the power and my soul started shaking,
I was born to believe in you.

I was born to believe in you.
Well everywhere I go down the street
I tell my brothers and my sisters everyone I meet
I was born to believe in you.
Well I was stranded at the crossroads in the driving rain
I was taking some shelter from this world of pain
It was through your mercy Lord I was awakened at once
I felt the power and my soul started shaking, my soul started shaking
I was born to believe in you.
