My God Is Might To Save

Steven and I joined a church this past Sunday. We have been visiting Five Stones for the past few months, but made the decision to join about two weeks ago. I am so grateful that God lead us to Five Stones. Every time we attend, I feel God’s presence and I hear him speaking to me. I swear it’s as if God gave the pastor a sermon specifically for Steven and me to hear.

This morning on the way to work, we heard the following worship song. To be honest, we don’t usually listen to the Christian station in the morning – we usually listen to one of the talk shows. But for whatever reason, Steven decided to try our local Christian station and the following song started immediately. This is a song that we sing almost every Sunday at Five Stones. I’m not usually a big believer in “signs”, but for some reason when I heard these lyrics this morning my spirit was moved and I took this as a confirmation that Steven and I are following God’s will for our lives by joining Five Stones.

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
shine you light and let the whole world see
were singing
for the glory of the risen King
Song by Hillsong United
You can hear the song HERE

I’m not trying to be preachy by any means. Lord knows that my spiritual walk is not what it should be and I am no one to counsel others on their relationship with Christ. But this song spoke to me this morning and changed my outlook on today – hopefully it can do the same for one of you. It’s a beautiful song. It reminds me that I am not in control of my life. And thankfully, the person who is in control is Mighty. It’s kind of liberating to realize that the day to day stresses we face are ultimately not our responsibility to worry about. As difficult as it may be, turn them over to the Lord and believe that He will take care of you. **This is a principle I’m struggling with, but I’m praying about it and believing God will relieve me of my anxiety and worry**

So I hope you have a blessed Wednesday!! And thank-you to everyone who asked about Bauer. He is feeling MUCH better today and is almost back to his usual spunky self.

I just joined my FI's church last Sunday. We had been visiting both churches and trying to decide where we'd want to attend and raise our family.
I am so excited about getting to really get involved there!
And I love that song! The first time I heard it was while I was a counselor at youth camp and I will always remember it because it was exactly what I needed to hear at that time.

It's the best feeling to walk into a church and feel like you were just meant to be there! Good for you! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that song. I am always so moved when I hear that one.

This song is so amazing! It moves me everytime. You need to look Laura Story's about how this song applies to her life. Her version is my favorite! It is amazing!
