    healing to my soul

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Feb 2016

    healing to my soul. The song entitled Isaiah 44:3 had such an amazing impact on me it is hard to describe. I don't know the composer but feel like he was totally inspired. The first time I heard it I wept because of the message that spoke to me. I ordered the CD and the day I got it I laid down on the floor and turned on that song again. I just sobbed and sobbed. I think I must've played it 10 times in a row until I stopped weeping. Please communicate my thanks to the men's choir and composer for this song which continues to bless my life.
