Mighty to Save

It was once said that music is the soundtrack to life. I am one of those people that when I find something I love, I stick with it. At certain restaurants, I always order the same thing. There are movies that I would watch over and over again before wanting to try a new one. I tend to be the same way with music, too.

There's a song we sing at church that at first I wasn't too keen on. I heard a slightly different version of it by Laura Story on the radio recently and it just touched my heart. Now, I seem to hear it all the time. It was the last song that came on during my drive home on Sundayafternoon, came on Monday morning on my way in to work... it's rare that I am in the car and it doesn't come on.

Mighty to Save

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave


Shine Your light and
Let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
Jesus

Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave


As I continued to sing and to hear this song over and over, it has sort of become one of my anthems. It's in my head all day, and I am so grateful for God's goodness in that. The refrain is the cry of my heart... if God can move the mountains, then why wouldn't he be able to do something equally as big and miraculous in our little boy's life? And wouldn't that miracle be a light to the world, bringing glory to God?

We have a while before our next appointment with any specialists. The waiting is hard. My next regular prenatal visit is June 10, and we go for an echocardiogram, MRI, and to consult with a pediatric surgeon at Children's Hospital on June 17. In the meantime, would you continue to pray that God would be mighty to save our little boy? That the God, who is mighty enough to move mountains and conquer death, would be mighty enough to do a miracle in out little boy's life?

If you're interested in hearing this song, one version is on the playlist for this blog. You can hear the one by Laura Story (my personal favorite) at http://www.laurastorymusic.com/ at the bottom of the page.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.

I love this song and am always deeply touched by it each time we sing it at church or I hear it. I think I may even have a post about it w/ lyrics somewhere on my blog as well. I'm so glad you found this encouraging song and that it touched your heart.
