A Song of Strength

This week has been one trial after the other. First, the computers started acting up. I lost complete internet access. (It figures, it happens after I start this site.) The minivan that was supposed to be repaired, had one more problem. This and the fact that they failed to mention their original price didn't include tax meant the outstanding bill was increased by $229.00. After paying for the minvan, it died at a gas station over 1 hour and 30 mintues from my home. It has a malfunction that DRAINS the battery. Oh and I lost out on about 48 hours worth of income, due to the loss of computer access...

In times like this, I still praise God. Why? It brings freedom. Remember, Paul and Silas were jailed and their songs of praise caused them to become FREE from the bondage. The walls of Jericho came down with the blare of the trumpets and the sounds of praise.

Here's a song of praise to sing in the time of a storm. A Song Of Strength by Fred Hammond
.




Here are a few scriptures for your day.

Acts 16:24-26 (New International Version)

24Upon receiving such orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.

25About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose.


Joshua 6:4-6 (New International Version)
4 Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams' horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. 5 When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have all the people give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the people will go up, every man straight in."

6 So Joshua son of Nun called the priests and said to them, "Take up the ark of the covenant of the LORD and have seven priests carry trumpets in front of it."

Song of Strength by Fred Hammond lyrics
Hold on and wait just a little while,
Hold on and wait just a little while,
He'll bring a song of strength,
Hold on wait just a little while,
little while.

Verse 1
What do you do,
When the life you planned is shattered,
What do say,
When the one you love is gone,
How do you live,
Seems like no hope for tomorrow,
Pain doesn't care where you live or who you are.

Chorus
Lord You see my life is broken,
And I don't know what to do,
While I'm in this change, help me remain,
I will count on You, oh, oh,
When I can't see, I know You'll guide,
When I cry out, I know You feel,
Now I am praying, I know You hear,
Praying for healing, I know You will.

Verse 2
Who do you call,
When no one has the answers,
Where do you go,
When the place you've known is no more,
When will it end,
All the tears just keep falling,
Pain doesn't care where you live or who you are.

Chorus
My life is broken,
And I don't know what to do,
While I'm in this change help me remain,
I will count on You, oh, oh,
When I can't see, I know You'll guide,
When I cry out, I know You feel,
Now I am praying, I know You hear,
Praying for healing, I know You will.

Channel
We ask You to forgive,
And we will do the same,
We receive Your love,
Lord we'll take time to heal.

Vamp
Hold and wait just a little while,
He'll bring a song of strength in the midnight,
Touch our lives with Your loving hand,
Hold on, we'll hold on.
(Repeat x4)

Hold on and wait just a little while,
Hold on and wait just a little while,
Hold on and wait just a little while.
