One Touch

Last year, when we attended WOF, we were blessed to witness the ministry of Nicole C. Mullen. This year, we were blessed again!!! I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to see she would be performing and I cannot begin to tell you the impact this beautiful woman has made for the Kingdom!

In case you have never heard of her, Nicole C. Mullen is known best as a Christian singer. God has given her the gift of music and she uses it to glorify Him 100%. Watching Nicole perform was amazing all in itself, but to watch her while others were performing was even more amazing. At any given time, during someone else's speaking, singing, drama, etc., you could look over and see Nicole with her eyes closed and her hand in the air. She was praying, she was praising, she was worshipping, and she was not ashamed.

There is a song that Nicole does called "One Touch". It is based on the story of the woman in the Bible who touched the hem of Jesus garment for healing. It should be playing while you are reading my blog, but you probably aren't really listening. So, I ask you for a favor. Please go here and watch this video. This song has made such an impact on me and I would so love to share it with you.

If you would like to know more about Nicole, including the incredible dance ministry she has for kids, please click here.

Here are the lyrics for you:

Been ostracized for 12 years
I'm used to being alone
Spent everything I had And now it's gone
I'm used to being put down
My issues tell it all
My only hope is anchored
In this fall

If I could just touch the hem of His garment
I know I'd be made whole
If I could just press my way through this madness
His love would heal my soul
If only one touch

So many people calling
How could He ever know
That just a brush of Him
Would stop the flow
If he knew would He rebuke me
Or shame me to the crowd
Well I'm desperate 'cause it's never or it's now


Suddenly He turned around
He said somebody has unleashed my power
Well, Frightened and embarrassed I bowed
You see I told Him of my troubles
And how...

I had to touch the Hem of His garment
And I know I've been made whole
And how I had pressed my way through the madness
And His love has healed my soul

Then with one word
He touched the hem of my garment
And you know I've been made whole
And somehow He pressed His way through my madness
And His love has healed my soul
I tell you He touched me
He reached way down and touched me
When no one else would touch me
Jesus, shol' 'nough He touched me... And I know I've been made whole

I was so blessed by Nicole this weekend. She was awesome, not just her, but you could just see Jesus in her. She loved, she glorified and worshipped. I was taken by her faith. Then when she sang that song with her daughter, I was so impressed. I was up there be bopping to her fast song with tears in my eyes. Awesome. Love Tanya
