Song Description

An inspiring song story about Jesus' miraculous ability to heal us of disease. Even in today's modern world, the master and greatest physician still performs miraculous healing .... all done in his own time ... in his own way ... at solely his own discretion ... through prayer, people and faith! This song is uplifting, upbeat, musical, positive, singable, and cleverly pop. Divinely inspired and written by the songwriter who received the gift of healing after a stage 4 cancer death sentence and given only 6 months to live. (That was in 2005, this is 2012!) The songwriter says, "I'm happy to be able to be here today to present you my music at all! And I so much appreciate the 5 friends who appeared at my hospital bedside to pray for me, because at the moment they did, I received a very obvious visit from God and an instantaneous miracle healing! What I learned from this is, never say "never", and always know that what a doctor tells you is "impossible to overcome", is never impossible when you know the savior of the world; for He created you and all of the heavens and earth ... and all things are possible with God. When he enters the room, you will know it ... and no one will have to explain it to you!"

Story Behind the Song

A very personal song about surviving a cancer death sentence. The words were gifted to me when I was awoken by God's presence in my bedroom after a deep sleep. Before I went to bed, I was questioning why God had chosen me to receive his blessing of a miraculous healing? I rationed there were so many other more deserving, more "religious" , and more youthful candidates who should have received this gift, ... and not me. I did not feel close enough to God, or worthy that he should pick me to bless in this way. I kept asking him, why me? I don't deserve this. And why have you waited all my life to show yourself in this way now? The chorus to this song was given to me as the answer to my questions. I felt God awaken me in the middle of a deep sleep, and he kept pushing me out of my bed so I would write down the words to this song. I was so tired and sleepy (and on kemo!) that in the morning, I couldn't remember if I dreamed this happened or not? So I went to my computer, and there were these words, typed clearly for me to read! In perfect meter, perfect rhyme, making perfect sense. My prayer was answered and I now know that God is real! (and a possibly a songwriter, too!)

Lyrics

IT'S A GOD THING

SHE WAS JUST 17 WITH A BABY ON THE WAY,
CONFUSED AND AFRAID OF WHAT HER PARENTS WOULD SAY?
UNTHINKABLE THINGS START TO RUN THRU HER BRAIN,
BUT WHAT IF HER PARENTS HAD DONE THE SAME THING?

HE WAS LOST IN DENIAL, HE WAS BARELY A MAN, AND THOUGHT THE END OF HIS WORLD WAS ABOUT TO BEGIN.
BUT THEY PRAYED FOR AN ANSWER, AND IN GOD'S GRACE, THAT CHILD WAS BORN WHEN THEY FOUND FAITH!

IT'S A GOD THING AND HE'S THE KING
RULER MAKER MASTER OVER EVERYTHING
LET'S GIVE CREDIT TO WHERE IT'S DUE
AND CLAIM IT IN HIS HOLY PRECIOUS NAME
IT'S NOT KARMA, LUCK, COINCIDENCE OR FATE, OR SOMETHING MYSTERIOUS THAT CANT BE EXPLAINED, IT'S A GOD THING

A WOMAN SITS BY THE PHONE WHEN THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE CALLS, SAYS "YOU'VE GOTTA COME IN, WE'VE GOTTA TALK"
BUT SHE KNEW THAT GOD WAS STILL IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS, WHEN 5 FRIENDS APPEARED AT A HOSPITAL VISIT

THEY LAID THEIR HANDS ON HER AND STARTED TO PRAY, CASTING OUT CANCER IN JESUS NAME!
AND THERE IN THAT ROOM BEFORE THE SURGEON HAD BEGUN,
THE GREATEST PHYSICIAN WAS ALREADY DONE!

IT'S A GOD THING AND HE'S THE KING
RULER MAKER MASTER OVER EVERYTHING
LET'S GIVE CREDIT TO WHERE IT'S DUE
AND CLAIM IT IN HIS HOLY PRECIOUS NAME
IT'S NOT KARMA, LUCK, COINCIDENCE OR FATE, OR SOMETHING MYSTERIOUS THAT CANT BE EXPLAINED, IT'S A GOD THING

Halleluya!
