The story behind the song: "In The Lovin' Arms"‏

This is a testimony from Carolyn Hyde of how one of the new songs came about. We are featuring this as one of the selected songs on our Worship In Battle #3 project. Enjoy!

The story behind  "In The Lovin' Arms": 

My parents, Arthur and Lillian Margolin (of blessed memory) rejected me for being a believer in Yeshua many years ago but my Mom always tried to bring me back to what she called "real Judaism", as I was raised in an Orthodox synagogue.  My Dad always cursed me and cursed Yeshua - he was really angry with me for years. So when my Mom passed away, it was very difficult for me.  
 
According to Jewish tradition, the unveiling of the headstone a year after the funeral is just as important as the funeral.  So when a year and a month passed after her funeral, I got up the nerve to call my Dad to ask when would the unveiling be.  He said they already did it - but no one even told me so I was devastated.  A few days later while walking on Mount Carmel, I yelled at G-d and asked Him, "Why didn't you take my Dad first!?"
 
Suddenly I saw what looked like a pure white sheet rise up in the air and it looked like it was dancing - it had a rhythm and went in and out of space!  Then the L-rd spoke to my heart and said, "She dances with me now!"  WOW!  Then I had to repent for saying that about my Dad...
 
Years later with barely any communication with my Dad during that time, one night I had a dream.  In the dream, I saw my Dad in the retirement home where he lived.  He was sitting next to a lady named Bethany and he saw her pass away and angels came and took her away.  Then my Dad knew that he was next, but the ones he saw coming to get him were definitely NOT angels!  The angels who had taken Bethany to Heaven returned and were standing on a nearby hill.  So my Dad looked at the approaching demons and then called out to the angels and said, "Wait, I want to go with you instead!"
 
But the angels said, "You can't because you didn't receive the G-d of Israel!"
 
Then I awoke and the L-rd told me to call my Dad right away.  I really didn't want to get cursed again and cry as usual...
 
But I obeyed and called my Dad and for the first time in I don't know how many years, we had a pleasant conversation.  No cursing, even when I spoke about G-d.  And my Dad even said, "I love you" - I hadn't heard him say that to me in years!  So it was an incredible time of reconciliation, praise G-d!
 
The next day my brother who lives next to Dad called and said he's gone.
He had a mild headache that evening and Mike took Dad home.  That's when I called him.  After that, he went to sleep and had a massive stroke.
 
I came out to Dad's funeral to sit shiva of course and as I was on the airplane to return home to Israel, I asked the L-rd, "Did he know You?  I have to know!"
 
Immediately the L-rd gave me the song "In the Lovin' Arms of the L-rd"!
G-d is so good!  I praise Him for giving me such a beautiful reconciliation with my Dad.  And I believe that both my parents had bedside experiences with the L-rd before they passed away.  
 
You can feel free to share this story as you teach the dance, if you like...
Much love to you,
Carolyn

    I know Carolyn and I know her music. This testimony truly speaks her heart, as her music always does as well, but what's more impressive is how she conveys the heart of God! I'm looking forward to seeing the dance interpretation of this beautiful piece!
