Music was created by God for His worship and praise,the host of heaven sing to him exalting him and acknowledging him as God over all things.
When we praise and worship God we tell him that we appreciate him and love him in return as he first loved us.it draws down blessings upon us,delivers us when we are in trouble,sooths our minds when we are not at peace and reassures us that heaven is a reality.
When we understand that music is solely for God,we would sing to him just as David sang the psalms.and adore him forever.
A 10-year-old in Atlanta escaped a kidnapper in the most improbable way. Now, a number of organizations in the area are teaming up to offer a $10,000 reward in the investigation.
On the night of March 31, Willie Myrick was outside taking care of his pet Chihuahua. The boy spotted a few dollars near a tree. When he walked over to the money, a man grabbed Willie and forced him into a four-door Honda Civic.
“He was cursing at me, telling me to shut up, and didn’t
want to hear a word from me,” Willie recalled to WSB-TV in Atlanta. “He said if I told anyone he would hurt me, like, in a bad way.”
The man drove around for three hours before leaving Willie on the side of a road in East Point, Ga. According to the
fourth grader, the reason the man released him is because Willie irritated him with gospel music. Willie sang the track, “Every Praise” by Hezekiah Walker repeatedly until he was
Stranded miles from his home, Willie went door-to-door seeking help. After one person turned him away, an elderly
man across the street called the police and contacted Willie’s guardian.
Willie escaped the situation physically unscathed. He was examined at a hospital before returning home.
Community leaders in Atlanta are now stepping up to help find Willie’s kidnapper. According to WSB, a group of churches, civic organizations, and businesses are offering the $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the kidnapper.
“Our concern is not just the city of Atlanta boundaries,”
said Michael Langford, speaking for the coalition behind the reward. “It’s the society in general. It’s metro Atlanta.
We’ve seen a number of attacks.”
But as authorities continue their investigation, Willie’s family is offering their own praise that his love of gospel
music might have saved his life.
