This was passage, well part of which, was read on Sunday by the liturgist. The moment I heard the words, I took a mental note of the passage.

On reading it, my heart simply melts. God is good! 😇
Songs are coming to mind. 🤓

God hears our cries.
He responds!

Jeremiah 33:3 NIV – Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

The Israelites were oppressed for how many years in Egypt – 400!
Can you imagine??

They cried out to God, and He heard. He sent Moses with the message — “Let my people go!”

My fellow Old Girls, abi you remember us singing this song in the chapel as we saw vacation approaching? 😅
— ‘ When Israel was in Egypt land , LET MY PEOPLE GO! ‘🤣🤣
Secondary school is an experience,..oh my goodness!
I miss it – the singing in the chapel , those hymns. Memories 🥹

God is great and worthy to be praised.
Let’s cry out to Him.
HE HEARS!!!!!!

Psalm 116:1-19 NLT

1 I love the LORD because he hears my voice
and my prayer for mercy.

2 Because he bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have breath!

3 Death wrapped its ropes around me;
the terrors of the grave overtook me.
I saw only trouble and sorrow.

4 Then I called on the name of the LORD:
“Please, LORD, save me!”

5 How kind the LORD is! How good he is!
So merciful, this God of ours!

6 The LORD protects those of childlike faith;
I was facing death, and he saved me.

7 Let my soul be at rest again,
for the LORD has been good to me.

8 He has saved me from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling.

9 And so I walk in the LORD’s presence
as I live here on earth!

10 I believed in you, so I said,
“I am deeply troubled, LORD.”

11 In my anxiety I cried out to you,
“These people are all liars!”

12 What can I offer the LORD
for all he has done for me?

13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
and praise the LORD’s name for saving me.

14 I will keep my promises to the LORD
in the presence of all his people.

15 The LORD cares deeply
when his loved ones die.

16 O LORD, I am your servant;
yes, I am your servant, born into your household;
you have freed me from my chains.

17 I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call on the name of the LORD.

18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD
in the presence of all his people—

19 in the house of the LORD
in the heart of Jerusalem.
Praise the LORD!
