The power of music, the power of praise

A few years ago my husband and I discovered in the ground floor of our house that termites had caused some considerable damage to the wooden structure.

Over time I started to get more and more worried. We asked several professionals to check it out and to give us a quote on fixing the problem. Unfortunately the quotes were very high reaching far beyond $ 1000.

At the same time we happened to meet up with our Christian friends to practise a hymn which we wanted to present as an item at a bigger gathering. “Leaning on the everlasting arms” was the title of the hymn. During our practises we repeated the chorus over and over again: “Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.” I love hymns especially because they often date back to previous centuries and they contain very deep and meaningful verses. By simply singing and praising the Lord I was able to conquer my fear and worries. I gained complete peace over the difficult situation with the termites not looking at the situation but rather trusting the Lord and filling myself with His positive Word. 

At the same time a friend gave us a contact number of a specialist in dealing with white ants. He only quoted $ 400.- which was amazing. Praise the Lord for His protection!
