Share A Song Monday!

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 voice of the Lord echoes above the sea.

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 Lebanonโ€™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, โ€œGlory!โ€

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.

Thanks!

    Hi Eileen – I was praying on and off for you guys. I wasn't sure who of you all were in its path, so I've decided to get a map and place pins or stickers where all my blog friends are, then I'll know – well – where you are.
    God bless

    Kandi and Tracy, Thank you so much! Glad to have power again too. What's kind of funny is internet at house was up long enough to write today's post and then went out again! Oh well…life will get back to normal soon enough. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again for the prayers.

    PS. Love that song too, Kandi.

    I'm so thankful that you and your family were safe and no significant damage was done Eileen! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I love your song choice as well… Something I told my boys through the past weekend was that they needed to remember that God is bigger than this, or any other storm we may face.

    For my selection this week, I'm going to tag one from Jamie Grace with TobyMac called "Hold Me". I'll admit, when I first heard it, it was a little on the "bouncy" side for my tastes, but I've found myself humming and singing it the last couple weeks.

    Enjoy!

    Have a Blessed Day!

    Blue Maiden, thanks so much for sharing! Some of the older hymns are definitely some of the best ๐Ÿ™‚ The lyrics for Heaven Came Down are beautiful.
    "Heaven came down and glory filled my soul, When at the cross the Savior made me whole; My sins were washed away and my night was turned to day,
    Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!

    Love it. I also love David Crowder's version.
