"I Bless Your Name"

There's a song that we would sing when I was in choir at First Assembly by Brooklyn Tabernacle called, I Bless Your Name.  I've been singing it all morning and just cannot get it out of my head.  Maybe a God thing?  I don't know...but in case it is, I don't want to pass up the opportunity to share the story with you. 

It's taken from the book of Acts, found in chapter 16, verses 22-26. 


"The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten.  After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully.  Upon receiving such orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.  About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.  Suddenly 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."

Are you struggling with something that you need to cry out to God about?  Do it...He's right by your side...just waiting for you to give it to Him.

I hope you enjoy the song.  Love to all.
