Music Lifts the Soul!

Music Lifts the Soul!

Therefore you now have sorrow; I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take form you. (John 16:22)
 
I recommend reading John 16.
 
Albert Brumley was born on a cotton farm near Spiro, Oklahoma. One hot day he was picking cotton and singing the sad ballad “If I Had the Wings Of An Angel.” He thought of flying away and began composing the hymn “I’ll Fly Away.” This hymn expressed Brumley’s personal hope of eternal life. In 1932 the hymn was published by Hartford Music Company. Shortly afterward he was hired by Hartford for $12.50 a month. He spent 34 years writing songs for Hartford and Stamps/Baxter companies before forming his own company. He wrote over 800 songs and became one of the most respected names in Southern gospel music in the twentieth century.
 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, thank you for the special music that moves our souls to serve You. Special music highlights Your love for each of us. Gospel music gives us hope and helps us face our daily challenges. Praise God for Your son Jesus. Alleluia! Amen
