There are always quotes, phrases, songs, and scenes that still out in your mind. Some of these keep ringing in our heads like one of those record players that gets stuck. It plays over and over. Some of them are stupid or make little, but others hold great power.
To be honest one of the songs that has been running through my mind is Adele’s song Hello. Don’t shoot me, but I like Adele. Now, let me move on.
Another song that has been running through my mind the last week is from Jeremy Camp titled Same Power. Here are some of the words:
…I can walk
Down this dark and painful road
I can face
Every fear of the unknown
I can hear
All God's children singing out
We will not be overtaken
We will not be overcome
The same power that rose Jesus from the grave
The same power that commands the dead to wake
Lives in us, lives in us
The same power that moves mountains when He speaks
The same power that can calm a raging sea
Lives in us, lives in us
He lives in us, lives in us…
That is a song about power, and it is also some powerful truth. I love the truth of the song because it is a fact that the same power, strong and filling, lives in each person who seeks, pursues and lives for God.
Here are a few of the verses that have been on my mind the last few weeks, and I pray this song and these verses that have run through my head will inspire you too.
John 13:35 NASB
"By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
John 1:14 NASB
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Philippians 2:15 NASB
so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world,
Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
James 4:6 NASB
But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, "GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE."
Matthew 23:11 NASB
That is enough for today. Have an awesome week!
People I am praying for:
Pray for Donna Pratt as she recovers from surgery and waits for results. Praise the Lord for tests results Josh Hill got during his cancer battle, and pray for him as more treatments are happening this week. Pray for LD and Retha Oaks son Dean as he broke his leg and has had surgery. Dean and his family live in Russian, and it is tough being away from family.
