The rumors are true. After 10 years, The Lord is sending us to Nashville, TN. It’s been a long time coming, but we were in no way hurrying to leave this house, this home. Sunday night was the last set I will lead before we move, and I was sent out with blessing and prophesy and flowers. I am reminded once more how lavishly God honors our obedience. It’s not easy to leave THIS, but Jesus is the JOY ever set before me, and He is leading us out!!! We are SO excited!!! The fire always falls on sacrifice, and these fathers and mothers that surround me have given more than the world will ever know. Heaven only knows. Thank you for not only GIVING me room, but for MAKING me room to dance. Know that I love you deeply, and my gratitude is great. I’ve had several waves of ugly cries as that gratitude sweeps over me again and again for all the love and leadership over these years. And, I am sure you will only continue to lead us. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Transitioning VERY sure that I will always be a beloved daughter here, and that we will absolutely come back home as often as we can. 😉 @bethel
Gretzinger, who co-wrote several of today’s most popular worship songs like “Defender,” “All Hail King Jesus” and “Love Never Fails,” recently opened up in a podcast with Shawn Bolz about the prophetic dream that brought her to Bethel.
Gretzinger was in Orlando in December as part of the Jesus ’18 conference with speakers including Todd White, Benny Hinn and Michael Koulianos.
During one session, Hinn prophesied over Gretzinger: “Very few of us are chosen to comfort the Master. You’re one of them.”
Gretzinger’s most recent album, Blackout, debuted last year.
