Hi, we're the Zornes Sisters from Middletown, Ohio. We'd like for you to get to know us better. We're actual sisters, Brenda Zornes Boyer and Elizabeth Zornes Mintus and we've been singing together since we were 6 and 8 years old, most of the years with our family group, the Zornes Family Singers.
My original song is about the Good Shepherd: a beautiful story in the Bible about a sheep that wanders away and the shepherd who leaves the 99 and goes after the 1 who is lost to bring that lamb back to the safety of the fold under his protection. A story about love, forgiveness & redemption.
My sister and I are standing around my piano singing an original song titled "KNEEL".
I chose this song because there are so many people hurting today. People are broken: spiritually, mentally, physically, financially stressed beyond coping. I remember reaching that point during the 7 years we provided in-home care for our parents before their deaths. Then while still grieving and trying to cope with our own health and financial problems, I was faced with the terminal illness of my only brother. We had been to visit him that night and he was so discouraged at being paralyzed, having to depend on others for everything. I woke up around 4:15 am, praying and crying over the thought of having to say goodbye to another loved one, when I actually heard myself crying aloud, asking God how much can we bear? My mind immediately flashed back to a sign I had seen years earlier at a church that read, "When life gives you more than you can bear, kneel". God flooded my soul with peace as these lyrics poured into my mind. I went back a few days later, sang this song to my brother and told him his struggle had inspired me. Singing it brought comfort to our family then and I hope that, no matter what you are going through, these words bless and help you today.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose hope is in the Lord. Jeremiah 17:7 When scandals, betrayals, hurts and disappointments rock the foundation of our faith, just remember we are to keep our eyes upon Jesus, not man. Jesus is the rock of our salvation: He is the one in whom we place our trust as He never fails! This is an original song titled, Trust in God.
