The story behind the song: “The Lord healed”

In 2 Chronicles 30:18-20 we find these words: (Amplified Version)

For a multitude of the people, many from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet they ate the Passover otherwise than Moses directed. For Hezekiah had prayed for them, saying, May the good Lord pardon everyone.

Who sets his heart to seek and yearn for God-the Lord, the God of his fathers even though not complying with the purification regulations of the sanctuary.

And the Lord hearkened to Hezekiah and healed the people.

It’s great to have Godly leaders willing to pray for you even when you do not follow their directions carefully. Hezekiah is a picture of Jesus who died for our sins and now stands praying for us to the Father in Heaven.

I pretty much saw myself as these poor people making a lot of mistakes in my own life and so grateful God healed me anyway. Being healed, which for me meant being free from the guilt and shame of another person’s sin of rape, was the absolute most freeing experience of my life. I didn’t have to carry the burden anymore. I was not longer beaten down with all the accusations in screaming at me in my mind.

I was free!

I was whole!

I could smile because joy was truly in my heart.

I am healed!

Song Story Behind - "The Lord Healed" - Rebecca Alderman

The Story Behind The Song “Do You Want To Be healed?”

Rape is not a comfortable subject to discuss for anyone no matter how traumatic or seemingly casual the experience was for the individual.  My experience happened forty-three years ago on a date; so in my book, and I’m no psychologist, rape in a criminal act would seem to me to be much worse. 

Either way, God is powerful and loves us all very much and never wanted or intended such devastation to happen to anyone.  That being said, God is also compassionate and doesn’t want us carrying such a burden as the guilt and shame that rape causes in every person – no matter the circumstances.  

God’s enemy, our enemy, the devil, perpetuates such behavior in the earth because rape will, in essence, cause a person not to trust, not to easily surrender, not to enjoy the fullness of oneness between a person and their Maker or a person and their Godly Mate, or spouse.

Yet, nothing the enemy can do will ever begin to compete with the power and majesty and love of our Heavenly Father toward us.  The secret is to make sure we RUN toward Him and not away from Him in shame.  When we can’t trust others, we can ALWAYS TRUST our Heavenly Father.

The cover song of the album, “Do You Want To Be Healed?”, is straight from Scripture when Jesus asked the honest question, “Do you want to be healed?”  Seems like this question would receive an obvious answer, but honestly, it’s a very personal and soul-searching question to answer.  When you’re healed from anything, you can no longer use it as a crutch or excuse or whatever you’ve been deceived that the “thing” needing healing seems to gratify.  It’s a lie and the sooner a person realizes it’s a lie, then saying, “YES”, to Jesus’ question is a no-brainer.

The Chorus of the song depicts the Biblical account of when Pharoah had prevented the Israelite children from leaving once again and reaped a plague upon the land but Moses told the people to put the sacrificial lamb’s blood on their doorposts and all inside would be saved from the plague of every firstborn child dying.  The Chorus is declaring that Jesus is passing over your home to wash you white as snow and cleanse you completely of any residue of rape from your life.

The first verse is Jesus speaking directly to a girl telling her how He remembered her and the pain she’s going through now – He saw and felt it while he was hanging on the cross. Jesus consoles the girl encouraging her to rest in Him and that He will strengthen her heart with His Peace.

The second verse is Jesus talking to a young man, explaining that his need to be macho strong is really weighing him down. Jesus is going to teach how to lay down his cares so they can soar the heights together and conquer by His power, a tower to overcome.

So I ask you now, “do you want to be healed?”

  • Playscape – We’ve captured sound effects of realistic playground noises and put cheerful music in the forefront to give your child practice with these noise sensations in his/her own home environment. The music creates a memory associated with the noise for the intended purpose of helping your child better handle similar noise levels without much disturbance. Select special times of your day/week to play this piece so your child becomes familiar with playground sounds. As you see his/her tolerance growing, try playing similar musical selections like “Crowds”.
Playscape - Autism Family Music Affair - Rebecca Alderman
  • Making Friends – Listen often to this dramatic dialogue between two children and Jesus with musical accompaniment.
  • Crowds – For children who find loud sounds around them disturbing or even painful when they go to a grocery store or mall with their parents, play Crowds at your discretion and time frames. The concept is knowing that every sound a human ear can hear has a musical tone. We’ve selected three sound effects of footsteps walking on cement pavement, a grocery store check-out counter and a mall. Then we set musical chordal patterns and rhythm behind these noisy sounds to help transition into a tolerable experience. By emphasizing the musical tone, the goal is for the noise to become muted or diminished for your child.
    • Activity:
    • How many steps do you hear the man taking before you hear him speak?
    • Did you hear the cash register?
    • Did you hear the seal barking?
    • Give the music your own words that tell your story of turning noise into music for your ears. Send your words and other song ideas to
  • Who Am I? – This techno piece is for all the dads out there wondering how you figure into the picture of parenting and helping your children.

While “Quiet Time” could be used for naptime, the rhythm motion is a little faster than 60 beats per minute for total relaxation purposes; however, it does restore energy with its calming sound effect while just sitting, listening and doing absolutely nothing.
    • True story: My son and I were in a near-miss accident on a back dirt road when a jeep full of teens sped ’round a corner’ at us. I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw a body flying feet upward while he was hanging onto the top bar of the jeep.

    • CHORUS: I’ll forgive and be forgiven. Be forgiven and forgive. (Repeat)
    • Verse 2: Love’s an action, heavier than words, wipes away the devastating hurts. I can choose to move my comfort zone passed the things people say and do. I can swim the sea of forgetfulness that Jesus taught me to. This is what I’ll do to show them I’m okay.
    • BRIDGE: I’ll give the gift of power to release me by the hour, for Jesus said, “They know not what they do.” I”ll walk in my authority with the freedom He has given me to be the one He created me to be! (Repeat Chorus)

    • When you heard the baby laughing?
    • Or at the end when the clown started snorting?
    • What clown? You didn’t hear the clown? Okay, you’ll have to listen again.
  • Sounds Near & Far – For some, the sound of an airplane approaching from far away long before you can see it can be disturbing. Or hearing the buzz of fluorescent lights can be rather annoying. Every sound a human ear can hear has a musical tone. God made it that way or else none could withstand the sounds around us. ‘Sounds Near & Far’ attempts to bring more comforting tones utilizing frequencies by moving from low to mid-range to high tones across the piano keys. This piece can also be played for that moment of quiet refreshing between difficult tasks during our day as it affords a release and relaxation of tension between each tonal range. Don’t be surprised if a little spurt of emotional tears come as you feel grateful for each new restoring moment, especially if you happen to be having a most trying day.

    • Verse 1: The silence brings me down ‘Cause no one else is around. This world’s a lonely place. When I can’t find your face.

    • Bridge: Funny giggles, joking wiggles, chuckles, tickles, joy. I’m so happy knowing Jesus lives in me …. (Repeat Chorus)

The Story Behind The Song: “FORGIVE”

This song was released to the stores worldwide on November 12, 2019. This one makes me tear up.

It’s entitled “FORGIVE” – powerful truths.

The story behind FORGIVE is about a young mother with an autistic child who is grocery shopping. Her sweet little one has a sensory meltdown in the store and people begin to stare and whisper. One lady even speaks out at her to get her child under control. This song is what the young mother decides to do to overcome her own hurt by the situation as she leaves her cart and the store to take her child home for the comfort of others.

Do we know, comprehend and apply ALL the truths in Scripture when it comes to “forgiveness”?

What would our world be like if WE ALL did what this mother did? “Forgive and be forgiven”?

Scroll down to the bottom of the Playlist to hear “Forgive”

A dear friend of mine whose wife committed suicide raised his two sons alone and each of them had varying degrees of autism. Being a single mother for a few years myself, I began to realize just how hard it must be for two parents to raise these dear little ones, much more so for a single father alone.

Hence, an entire album of music specially written and recorded for the family with special needs children was created. The “Autism Family Music Affair” album of 20 songs has now been released.

Our heart and prayer is these little ones and their families would so grow in faith of the goodness of God that each one would receive healing and complete restoration.

The Story behind the album: “Do You Want To Be Healed?”

The music album, “Do You Want To Be Healed” happened over the course of 3 years. On January 10, 1993, I received a prophecy saying, “…..There will come a time when you will make a tape so anointed with My power that those in insane asylums will be set free.” That was a tall order but in faith, we stepped out to believe God for what He wanted to accomplish through us. Little did we know years later, when the album would actually be released, the silent hurting was not in insane asylums but would seek suicide to rid themselves of the horrors they experienced.

Do You Want To Be Healed? Album Release by Rebecca Alderman
God will never force Himself upon you!
It’s totally your decision to be healed.

My husband, before his death, John Persichitte, began fasting and praying over the project a week before I began – all while working 12-hour days. I spent concentrated time with the Lord and He gave me specific instructions on how to prepare myself. For 4 days I ate nothing but bitter herbs, lamb, unleavened bread and drank grape juice. The lamb represented Jesus. The unleavened bread with its baked-in stripes stood for Jesus’ sacrifice he bore for our healing. The grape juice represented the blood of Jesus spilled to redeem us, allowing us to walk in His righteousness. The blood washes away our sin.

I secured a babysitter for a week and I went to an Intercessor’s home to use their piano and prayed, worshipped and composed as the Lord directed. On February 8-11, 1993, I spent 5 hours per day with the Lord. On the 12th, I spent 3 hours with Him worshipping over all He created in the 4 previous days.

The first day went smoothly, I thought; but the writing was a collaboration between me and the Lord. I felt heartsick because I didn’t think of myself as an accomplished songwriter and this project wasn’t going anywhere if I had any of me in it. I wanted only Him, but I wasn’t sure how to do it.

That first song, the album title, came from teaching I’d heard my pastor’s wife at the time, Susan Moore of Sojourn Church, Carrollton, Texas, give about the very question the Lord Jesus asked someone coming to Him for healing. it struck me as a very odd question at the time but now I understand better. People want to be healed until they realize it will change their life to one of greater responsibility and accountability and service to Him who healed them. What does “being healed” mean to you?

(These stories about the songs written for this project were typed onto the cassette album jacket. That’s how I can remember so well. As I read the jacket, I’m remembering and worshipping God for His goodness.)

The 2nd day of composing I struggled with what God called His valentine love song to His People, “Come Into My Chambers”. He taught me tenderly to wait (just like in intercession) and hear His voice and His melody line, then He would give the words. All I had to do was ask Him what key we were in and start penciling in the notes on the staff paper. He would not allow me to go any further until I heard the chord structures precisely. Later, I discovered the exact sounds He was developing with those chord structures. At 2:05 pm, I stopped and amazingly realized the 4th song was completed within the exact time frame of 5 hours. I rushed home to my children.

As I read this cassette album jacket remembering what happened between the Father and me during those precious days, I’m humbled to realize how He chooses to use frail humans to bring forth His message, His songs, His love. Oh, if I’d only read this jacket often through the years and remembered how gracious and patient and kind He is to work through a willing vessel. I only had to remain willing. Yes, I can go back now and see the mistakes I made thwarting His plans and purposes. There were times I’d resurface and obey, only to walk off the path and thwart things again. Yet, there is His Love again embracing me the minute I turn back to Him and surrender purposing to follow Him all the way this time.

The next days of composing with Him was nothing short of miraculous- and He even involved my husband, John, in one of the songs coming. What an amazing God – great and awesome – and He’s ours to love and enjoy and serve all the remaining days of our lives.

On the third day, I was so overcome with rejoicing from the previous days’ writings, I had to worship the Father on my knees before going on. I picked up the pencil and “You’re Brand New” floated onto the paper with a fresh new sound. That afternoon, the Lord revealed the order and number of songs to go on the album. Instead of eight, He wanted 10 songs. The album would begin with prayer, “The Lord’s Prayer” acapella, and end with worship, “How Great Thou Art”. Everything in between would be a fresh revelation of His character and the type of relationship He longs to have with His children. He said we would write the final songs on holiness and joy the next day. I so desired and even began to write on holiness, but He stopped me tenderly saying to my heart, “Let time this evening with your family develop all I want to say about holiness.” He then said we would go back to the songs on the first day and take my human frailness out of them.

That night I was so blessed. My husband John, who had started 7 days prior to me on a complete fast (no food), covering and supporting me in this project, began sharing all the Lord was revealing to him about “holiness”. I wrote key phrases and Scripture passages down as fast as he could share. The next morning, “Seek Holiness” fell on the paper in one hour. I realized that this song was as much for the Body of Christ as it was for the newly healed person willing to walk in the reality of their healing. The beautiful part was how the Lord worked through 2 vessels, a husband and wife, the one-flesh picture of the church, to write a song depicting where our life and benefits flow out.

The last song written was indeed a sound of joy bursting forth from the Father’s heart. “I Will Whistle” is a victorious picture of the Body of Christ, the church, God’s army on the earth, the pure bride of Christ, marching home and shouting “We win!”

Friday came, and worship was bursting from mine and John’s heart. I can claim no ownership of any of these songs. I held the pencil, but our heavenly Daddy wrote the songs to us. I had to learn these songs as I would any song preparing for the recording session set for February 14, 1993.

I had no desire to eat anything. I asked the Father, “Should I fast completely now?” I heard Him say in my spirit, “No, drink juice and eat 3 boiled eggs, one per meal. The number 3 stands for the GodHead. An egg stands for wholeness. I can’t explain it, but my body was completely satisfied.

The 7th day of my fast was a day of rest before the Lord. Satan was lurking about, trying to upset my rest in the most uncreative ways. Of course, he always overplays his hand with his accusations and discouraging remarks. If he could just get me to doubt my healing and fear man, God’s power would never be seen through this project.

I had to speak out exclaiming: “Get behind me, Satan. Look at the heavenly sky above, you devil. How long has God been God Eternal? FOREVER! That’s how long my healing is intact!”

Ironically, I used the same warring declarations weeks after Jalon’s death when Satan was trying to torment me while planting flowers around the pool where he died. “Satan, you can see in the spirit realm better than I. Jalon is not suffering in that pool. Jalon is alive with Jesus in his heavenly home. Now be gone with you!” I have never been tormented again about Jalon’s passing or where he is this hour. In fact, heaven is closer and more real to my heart the more I seek our Heavenly Father.

What’s my next step, Lord?

Power Over Others

Affirmations & Explanations.

Power Over Others - Rebecca Alderman

Most moms have known for a very long time that after the development years of their young, they simply will not have power over their children anymore.  In fact, healthy moms look forward to the day when their kids are potty trained and can clothe and feed themselves plus be efficient enough to pay their bills and make a life for themselves.  It’s a milestone during motherhood that speaks loudly how successful you have been.

Power Over Others

But the most exciting mark of parenthood is when a child emulates your character in choosing friends they would never need or want to control in anyway. Children learn what they live.

When you use this affirmation to overcome challenges in relationships yourself – you become a healthy model to your kids  – and others.

We’ll talk a lot about struggles in this area as well as “fearful” relationships in the upcoming podcasts.  Your life will never be the same.  I look forward to reading your questions and comments.  So go ahead and get signed up today!

I Refuse This Type Of Rule

Don’t let mistakes ruin your life.  Mistakes do not have to rule your life. You can own it, take action (ask God’s and others forgiveness) and move on. Repeat this affirmation over and over to yourself until you embrace it as a standard for your life.

We have ALL made mistakes.  We don’t deserve freedom over past mistakes.  But because of Jesus and His sacrifice for us, we GET TO live in freedom of our past mistakes. Oh, the sweet reality of the Cross of Jesus and all He accomplished FOR US through His suffering! Just think about it! Do you know of anyone who would go through what He did for you or me or anyone else, for that matter?  I believe a little shouting and rejoicing is appropriate about now!  Thank you, Jesus!
