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.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Is this world and its constant troubles weighing heavy on your soul? This song by Rich Mullins, recorded live in 1992, came into my mind this morning. Once again, the thought of what is waiting for me in Heaven with my Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ covered me in warmth and comfort like the best of soft cuddly blankets.
“In this world, you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-29
“Instead, they were longing for a better country- a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.” – Hebrews 11:16
“But our citizenship is in Heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 3:20
In these days of confusion, discouragement, anger, disagreement, God stands in sharp contrast. He is none of these things. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Bright Morning Star, the Way, the Truth, the Light. He draws all people to Himself.
Feeding your soul on the things and words of Christ is essential in these days. I spent fifteen minutes reading His scriptures this morning, and it felt like jumping in a refreshing cool clear Caribbean sea. No waves, no turbulence, just peace.
Feed your soul on Him. He is all you need. Enjoy this beautiful worship song from Second Chapter of Acts, circa 1985 “Night Light”. Love, Lisa
