Bend In The River...

This is my first week to join in "Then Sings My Soul Saturday." I may not join in weekly, but if I have a song on my heart, you can count me in. And I am sure they would love to count you in. This meme is hosted by Amy over at Signs, Miracles and Wonders. Don't forget to Link up if you join, so everyone can enjoy your selection.

Today I do have a song on my heart. It is called "Bend in the River of Life." Karen Peck and New River made this song popular. I have a cassette where a friend at the church where I attended would sing this song and I recorded her. This song spoke to me when I was going thru a difficult time in my life. I would get down and out and troubled and I would put my cassette in and it would always remind me He was going to deliver!

It seems we have a lot of blogging buddies having a hard time right now. I know several who have asked for prayers or have stepped back from blogging because of pressing matters in their lives, hopefully to return at some point. We need to remember to pray for each other. We as Christians, are under attack. But most of all remember, it's just a bend in the river of life and our God will deliver!

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9

until next time... nel
