Happy St. Patrick’s Day! As always, my heart is yearning for beautiful Ireland, and the music follows.
Here is a reworked version of the tune, “Banish Misfortune”, with some new lyrics I added, retitled “God Is Stronger”. It’s just a rough demo I recorded at home on the piano. I pray it encourages you on this day and helps you and me to remember that God is indeed stronger than ANYTHING we face. He can do everything, anything, all things.
“Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.” – Matthew 24 :42-44
This is one of my very favorite songs written by Twila Paris on her album, Beyond a Dream, 1993. Watch, pray, rejoice. Your Savior and Mine is coming. 🙂
When I am down, music never fails to lift me up. One of the greatest gifts God ever gave us is music. I would like to give away some of my CDs for free to anyone who is interested. If you would like a free digital copy of my latest CD, An Unexpected Journey, please send me a message below with your email, and I will send you a code to download it. Or if you prefer a physical CD, send me your address, and I will mail you one. 🙂 With so many negative things everywhere, I just wanted to offer one small positive thing from my corner of the world.

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” ~Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie
When I was three, I spent an entire summer trying to fly, and I was sure that I could. Everyday I climbed atop my dog’s house, 3 or 4 feet off the ground, and I would close my eyes. I would feel the wind under my arms, my body, and imagine lifting off the ground in flight. I would jump with full expectation of lifting and staying off the ground, each time I tried. I had, and still have, dreams of flying, wonderful dreams of weightless joy.
And I will fly one day, of that I have no doubt. I will fly with the angels, in the Heavens in the place that Jesus has prepared for me. No doubts, no weight, no sorrow, only effortless joy and praise.
My prayer is that God will continue to help me fly while I’m on this earth as well. That He will give me the strength to mount up with wings of eagles as I look into His wonderful face.
