Our world is desperately in need of some good news. Suzanne Jennings wrote this song in 1999:

I woke up Monday morning, walked out on the lawn

My eyes were barely open, and my mouth began to yawn

Picked up the daily paper, every single headline said,

That this ole world is full of trouble, and I wished I'd stayed in bed.

Sometimes the bad that's goin' on's enough to bring you down.

Turned on my television and began to flip on thru

All 100 channels, On Demand, and Pay per view

Not one message had a meaning that was good in any way

Just before I wrote the whole world off, I heard the Father say,

"Don't forget what I have promised, you can overcome it all!"

Well my knees began to shake, and my heart began to beat,

And a funny new sensation worked its way into my feet

The Spirit of glad tidings came from somewhere deep inside,

And holdin' back the flood was just like holdin' back the tide.

I couldn't help but circulate to everyone I know.

I'll spread this talk all over town about the peace and joy I've found in You, good news!

This story is about to break and blessed are the feet that take the Truth, good news!

I'm slippin' on my gospel shoes--Cause I've got good, good news!

(Words: Suzanne Jennings, performed by Gaither Vocal Band, 1999.
