Frank had a terminal illness and gave his life to Christ a month before he passed away. He had always loved to sing, and one day he sat up straight in his Hospice bed and belted out the song, “Amazing Grace”. The hospital staff was amazed at his strength because two hours later he passed into the arms of Jesus. The Lord became his strength and his song.
Moses and the Israelites sang a song after their victory over Egyptian slavery, and one of the lyrics was, “The Lord is my strength and my song and he has become my salvation.” (Exodus 15:2) They all sang with timbrels and dancing for this glorious victory!
When the Lord is our strength and our song we have a reason to celebrate as He gives us joy in the midst of sorrow. Who is your strength and your song? (Judy Whittaker)
