Sunday Set-List

Today I'm sharing a relatively new song to our family, but our church sang it a few weeks ago. The words just hit me like a ton of bricks!!

Peace Be Still

Goosebumps on my goosebumps

The lyrics:

"I don't want to be afraid
Every time I face the waves.
I don't want to be afraid
I don't want to be afraid
I don't want to fear the storm
Just because I hear the roar
I don't want to fear the storm
I don't want to fear the storm

Peace be still
Say the word and I will
Set my feet upon the sea
Till I'm dancing in the deep
Oh peace be still
You are here so it is well
Even when my eyes can't see
I will trust the voice that speaks

I'm not gonna be afraid
'Cause these waves are only waves
I'm not gonna be afraid
I'm not gonna be afraid
I'm not gonna fear the storm
You are greater that it's roar
I'm not gonna fear the storm
I'm not gonna fear at all

Peace be still
Say the word and I will
Set my feet upon the sea
Till I'm dancing in the deep
Oh peace be still
You are here so it is well
Even when my eyes can't see
I will trust the voice that speaks

Let faith, rise up
Oh heart, believe
Let faith rise up in me

Let faith, rise up
Oh heart, believe
Let faith rise up in me

Peace be still
Say the word and I will 
Set my feet upon the sea
Till I'm dancing in the deep
Oh peace be still
You are here so it is well
Even when my eyes can't see
I will trust the voice that speaks.

So, so good!
I remember when my family was going through some of the darkest days. It felt as though I was constantly being hit, wave after wave, and just as I thought it was going to be just too much, I had a sudden surge of peace....Peace that passes all understanding. I knew that my marriage was meant for so much more than the path we were on. I knew my babies deserved more, and I knew that God had plans far bigger than the waves that were hitting me repeatedly. Even today, when my eyes can't see what's ahead, I'm just going to trust the voice I hear!

Do you have that peace, even when you are being bombarded with the stresses of life?! If not, I'd love to pray for you. 

Happy Sunday.
