It's Then Sings My Soul Saturday when I link up with Amy of Signs, Miracles and Wonders.
I've been studying Ann Spangler's "Praying the Names of God". This past week the focus has been on God as El Elom. He is the everlasting God. He is not bound by time. He is the Alpha and the Omega with no beginning or end.
The song that came to mind was an old one called "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms". The memory I actually have of this song (besides singing it as a kid in church) was from the Million Dollar Movie.
Most of you are probably too young to remember The Million Dollar Movie. But in the days before Tivo or DVD's or even videos, channel 9 in New York had one movie that was on TV every day for the entire week. This way if you missed part of it you could pick it up the next day. The theme song was from Gone with the Wind.
I don't even remember the movie but this song was sung in it with all of the verses. For some reason, it stuck in my mind.
Maybe I was reassured by the thought of being able to lean on God. His everlasting arms would surely hold me secure.
Here are the Gaither's singing this song:
