The darkness was gone, there was an incredible light lighted up the sky, I saw a hug window opened in the sky, a large crowd facing the light raising their hand worshiping God, I found myself stand on a rock.

My upcoming work is a song about “calling”. ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,I have sanctified you before you were born. ’God came to Jeremy and said.’ I call you to be a prophet, and you shall speak whatever I command you. Be not afraid of others’ faces, for I’m with you to deliver you.’ That moves a lot, I was called by God too, I decided to follow Jesus for my whole life. But sometimes I forget my words to God. So when I read these chapters again, I feel God talked to my heart, He call me again like the first time He called me. I tell my soul to wake up, listen and follow again.
