How did you do on the clues we gave you for our previous single, "Desperate Queen" and "Psalms Come True"? Let's look at them again, and we'll point out the "clues within the clue":
When Persia's king needed a queen, the name of the girl he chose was Esther, but shortly after she said "I do," his prime minister began plotting her people's demise. Esther's cousin Mordecai sent an S.O.S., telling her they'd soon be under attack. Because she decided to take a chance and speak up, her story and her people live on and on and on.
The clue for song #1 referenced seven song titles by ABBA:
The Name of the Game
I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do
Take a Chance on Me
On and On and On
It's easy to thank the Lord for the nice times, but life isn't just a bowl of cherries, even if you're a believer. The Psalms teach us that … and this: when things don't look rosy and your life's on the rocks, the good Lord loves you and things can turn around quickly. So keep praying and turn on the lamp of God's word and let it light up your heart.
The clue for song #2 included eight song titles by Neil Diamond:
Thank the Lord for the Night Time
I'm a Believer
Love on the Rocks
The Good Lord Loves You
