Good morning! Welcome to Share A Song Monday. Before I share the song on my heart, I wanted to thank you all for your prayers. Many of you know Hurricane Irene passed right over the top of eastern North Carolina on Saturday.
My family and I drove inland just to be safe. We arrived home yesterday and, although power had not yet been restored to our neighborhood, we felt very blessed that only a few trees were down in our yard. And, no tree damage to the house!
While stretched out in bed early this morning listening to the sound of my neighbor’s generator through the open windows, I had no idea if I would be able to post a song today. I didn’t even have a song in mind. It had been a crazy upside down weekend.
Then, a few minutes later, I heard the power click back on! I jumped out of bed and started a pot of coffee. I opened my bible to Psalm 29 and read these words…
The God of glory thunders.
The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars;
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf;
he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord strikes
with bolts of lightning.
The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks
and strips the forests bare.
In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”
The Lord rules over the floodwaters.
The Lord reigns as king forever.
The Lord gives his people strength.
The Lord blesses them with peace.
(Psalm 29: 3-11)
And, then I thought, our God is greater. God is greater than hurricane force winds. God is greater than rising waters. And God is greater than any storm you might currently be experiencing in your own life.
So, here is my song today.
Now, it’s your turn! In the comments section of this post, leave a link to a song you have been enjoying lately. If you have a story for why the song is special, please share, I would love to hear it. My reasoning behind sharing songs here is similar to the Give A Penny Take A Penny concept. You leave a song…and someone else comes along and picks it up. It might be one small treasure that makes another heart dance today.
