Habakkuk 3:17-19 ESV Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy … Continue reading When Life Kicks Us Hard
About a week ago Tosin, of Alethea’s Mind Blog, wrote a poem which she believed was to be a song, so she put out an appeal for someone to come up with a tune for her song. And, then she asked me, and the Lord led me to do that, although I had never written a tune for someone else before. And, the Lord gave me a tune for her song, and she accepted it.

Now here is one thing: I did not know much about her apart from the things she has shared about herself on her blog, but one thing I was certain of is her desire to follow…

I think that when things are going well in our lives that it is easy to sing praises to God and to thank him for all his many blessings to us.
