Let us focus on the lessons rather than the things that went wrong.

There have been times this year when I have wondered about life and all the things that have gone on. The deep losses and disappointments took a toll on me for a while because I didn’t have the heart or strength to make it through but I had to find something that would be the anchor for me. Then I came across this song…

My God is awesome, He can move a mountains
Keep me in the valley, hide me from the rain
My God is awesome, heals me when I’m broken
Strength where I’ve been weakened, forever He will reign
(repeat)

My God is awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome
My God is awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome

My God is awesome, Saviour of the whole world
Giver of salvation, by His stripes I am healed
My God is awesome, today I am forgiven
His grace is why I’m living, praise His holy name

My God is awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome
My God is awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome

He’s mighty, He’s mighty, He’s mighty, He’s mighty, Awesome, Awesome

He’s Holy, He’s Holy, He’s Holy, He’s Holy, Awesome, Awesome

He’s Great, He’s Great, He’s Great, He’s Great, Awesome, Awesome

He’s mighty, He’s mighty, He’s mighty, He’s mighty, Awesome, Awesome

Deliverer, Deliverer, Deliverer, Deliverer, Awesome, Awesome

He’s Holy, He’s Holy, He’s Holy, He’s Holy, Awesome, Awesome

Provider, Provider, Provider, Provider, Awesome, Awesome

Protector, Protector, Protector, Protector, Awesome, Awesome

My God is awesome, He can move mountains
Keep me in the valley, hide me from the rain
My God is awesome, heals me when I’m broken
Strength where I’ve been weakened, Praise His holy name

This song has resonated in my heart and given me strength through the silent times. It has reminded me that I have help and support. It has reminded me that He gave up so much for me. He gave up so much for me. When I stopped to think about it I didn’t have to find something to get me through the silent time I just had to reconnect to my faith and live it out no matter what. That is why it is faith and not works at the base of my faith.

I am learning the truth of walk by faith and not by sight in this season and I have learnt to love it. Walking by faith is walking in certainty of what God has said regardless of whether it looks possible or even plausible simply because He has said it. Remember He speaks His word to us, confirms it with scripture and confirms it through His people. Remember Isaiah 55:8-10?

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways,” says Adonai.
9 “As high as the sky is above the earth are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For just as rain and snow fall from the sky and do not return there, but water the earth, causing it to bud and produce, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth — it will not return to me unfulfilled; but it will accomplish what I intend, and cause to succeed what I sent it to do.” Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

When God has said the word, it cannot return to Him void. So the word over my life is secure as long as I stay connected to

this word and continue to walk in faith. God’s word is certain, if he says he’ll move a mountain, He will move it no matter that right now it is not working and no matter that I feel worn out and lucked out. So I stand firm that even as the day of fulfilment approaches and in the physical it appears like nothing will come of the word. I hold firm because of Numbers 23:19

19 “God is not a human who lies or a mortal who changes his mind. When he says something, he will do it; when he makes

a promise, he will fulfill it. Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

  • I choose to stand firm and know that HE is God and in the fullness of time it will work out.
  • I stand in faith that His word is true and reliable
  • I walk on with my head held high
  • I sing a song of praise because He dwells in the praises of His people

Will you join me?
