God of this City

When I woke up yesterday, the lyrics to a song were on my lips and in my heart. I couldn't get them out of my head all day. They were such a great reminder to me and really calmed my anxious fears about the future of our nation. We have so much to be thankful for and much to pray for. We have a God who is bigger than any ruler or authority here on earth.

For HE is "the God of this city, the King of these people, the Lord of this
nation. He's the light in this darkness, the hope to the hopeless, and the
peace to the restless. Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city."

May we all be on our knees like never before and may His sovereign will be done. Our hope is in Him, not man. Let's all get behind our new president and watch what God is going to do.

Asher LOVES this song and sings it as loud as he can. It is funny b/c he gets really into it and can sing every little turn and moving line. Love this song too!

As hard as that is going to be to do I will because God is bigger and better than Obama. Thanks for the reminder!

As much as I've told my kids, "It doesn't matter if you win or lose. It's how you play the game" you would think I would have a better attitude about losing. However, I know that I know that I know, God IS in control. He has a plan bigger and better than anything any man can pull off. You are right. We have much to be thankful for and much to keep us on our knees.

I love this song . . . truly awesome and so appropriate for us to remember. And then another great song . . . "My Life Is In His Hands." :-) Thank goodness!
