“Throwback Thursdays” come with an array of pictures and memories. Yesterday while preparing for our study in Matthew 6 for Prayer Meeting and for this Sunday’s message, I played a Youtube mix of one of my favorite singing groups from the early 80’s, the Cathedral’s and Legacy Five. To say that “I had church” here at my desk would be an understatement! As the truths of God’s Word worked in my heart coupled with the lyrics and memories from the songs, various emotions came out. I was reminded of how God’s Word and these songs were precious to me in various trials and times of rejoicing. Also, what some of these men have meant to me and my family in years gone by and continue to do so today.
Two songs that are linked below reminds us of the cry of our heart and the blessing of God’s nearness when we are faced with cancer, death, hardships, questions, heartache and tears. They were written by Roger Bennett who sings them. He battled leukemia from 1995 until the Lord took him Home to Glory on March 17, 2007. You will notice in the second video the toll that cancer had taken on Roger’s body.
I trust that today’s simple blog post will be a blessing to you as you realize that in the midst of life’s storms, God will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5-6), and He does speak to us in the night seasons (Job 35:10; Psalm 42:80).
