Song for a Storm

"How long have I been in this storm?

So overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless form

Water's getting harder to tread
With these waves crashing over my head

If I could just see you
Everything would be all right
If I'd see you
This darkness would turn to light"

 -"Storm" by Lifehouse

 

Whether you're in a physical storm or you're getting hit with one spiritually. (Or you're even in both). Here is a song that might reflect what you're feeling and give you some hope.  

 PSALMS 107:28-29 (ESV) “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.”

Cheesy Song

"Our God is an Awesome God
He Reigns
From Heaven above
with wisdom,
power and love
Our God is an Awesome God"

-Rich Mullins

This used to be the song I rolled my eyes too. 

It was a cheesy song that my mom and her friends were rock out to in the appropriate mid-90's Contemporary Christian style. (Which is probably why it got on my nerves.)

It was uncool. Annoying. Repetitive.

Then for some reason, it has been in my head for the whole summer. No matter if I'm listening to The Beatles or House of Pain or Needtobreathe, I can't shake my brain from it. It still plays from the second I wake up all the way throughout the day. And I haven't heard that song since...well...probably the mid-90's.

And I'm glad it hasn't. Because it reminds me of that powerful truth regardless of the circumstance.

God speaks the greatest of truths in spite of me. In spite of us. In spite of ignorances, annoyances and pride. To remind us of just who He will always be. Awesome.

Here's a solid rendition of that song. Repetive yet powerful. Old truth yet never changing.
