My new song of the moment..."Stronger" by Mandisa.
The other day while working on VBS decorations, my friends mentioned that I should get this song to sing. I hadn't recalled the song...even though they play it all the time on K-Love, so I downloaded it from itunes, then listened to it this morning on the way to work. It was just what I needed to encourage me this morning.
Psalm 27:14 says, "Wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart, Wait, I say, on the Lord." This verse is something that has been on my heart for awhile now and I realized while listening to this song I'm getting stronger due to the waiting on the Lord. It's tough a lot of times...when I see others getting things that I'm praying for...and it's not that I'm not happy for those others who are getting those things...I am happy for them, but there's still a hurt feeling that I'm still ... WAITING. But this morning this song reminded me that while I'm waiting, I'm getting stronger. I love the line from the bridge ..."He knows how much it hurts, and I'm sure that He's gonna help you get through this..." I believe that and am thankful that I do have a God who cares what I'm going through...who's there with me in the storm...who's there for me to fall into His arms.
Hopefully you will be encouraged by this song too...
