One Sunday while in service, one of our associate ministers, Carlos Murrell testified.

It wasn't so much the testimony that inspired this song, it was the revelation that Minister Murrell shared during the message that was inspiring.

As Minister Murrell shared the Word of God, he boldly confessed that he told God, This Time he was going all the way; no shortcuts.

Thus, the song was born!  

Thank you Holy Spirit and thank you Minister Carlos Murrell~ Family Worship Center (September 2016).

This Time 1st Verse: As I look in the mirror, I don’t recognize what I see Once I use to see you, but now I only see me Yes, me without you, I’m lost and unglued Walking around and looking free, in bondage But in you there’s victory……………………… Chorus: This time, I’m running back to you, this time I can’t live without you, Like the air, I need to breathe, I need thee oh, I need thee, this time, this time, this time 2ndVerse: What’s wrong with me, cuz I really don’t want to be, the way that I am throwing rocks and hiding my hand. The good that I would do, that’s the thing I doeth not, Oh but, here I am again pleading, back in the same spot…… Chorus: This time, I’m running back to you, this time I can’t live without you, Like the air, I need to breathe, I need thee oh I need thee, this time. (Repeat) Like the air I need to breathe, I’m coming home to stay, this time, this time, this time. Vamp: Said you were married to the backslider, I’m coming home, I’m coming home (Say twice) This time, (I’m staying, I’m staying, I’m staying) I made a vow to you Lord. (This time) I’m staying, I’m staying, I’m staying I ain’t going nowhere (This time) I ain’t going nowhere, I ain’t going nowhere, I ain’t going nowhere (I Made a vow to you Lord) This time. I’m staying, I’m staying, I’m staying I ain’t going nowhere……….FADE
