August 19 Inspiration

From the Desk of DeAnne Miller, Communication Coordinator

There is still a lot weighing on our minds these days. As a mom of a middle-school aged kiddo about to start back to school on a hybrid attendance schedule, there are many concerns on which I could fixate. It requires a tremendous effort, an active choosing—and a whole lot of prayer—to not be overwhelmed. Instead, I have to trust in my holy Father in this and in all things. He is our refuge, our strength. He, indeed, is our very source of hope in troubled times. Here are two very encouraging songs that help me keep that in mind!

My Prayer For You – Alisa Turner (Official Lyric Video)

“…For all of those with tired and weary souls
But still have faith to ask for miracles
Choosing to believe He’s in control…”

I Will Fear No More – The Afters (Official Lyric Video)

“… Every anxious thought that steals my breath
It’s a heavy weight upon my chest
As I lie awake and wonder what the future will hold
Help me to remember that You’re in control…”

Lyrics
My Prayer For You

For anyone who’s prayed a thousand prayers
And still can’t find the answer anywhere
Fighting off the lie that no one cares
For anyone who’s out there losing hope
Feeling you’re forsaken and alone
Clinging to the last strands of your rope

May God give you eyes to see, He’s still greater
Courage to rise and believe He’s able
May God be your peace in the fire you’re walking through
This is my prayer now
This is my prayer for you

For all of those with tired and weary souls
But still have faith to ask for miracles
Choosing to believe He’s in control

May God give you eyes to see, He’s still greater
Courage to rise and believe He’s able
May God be your peace in the fire you’re walking through
This is my prayer now
This is my prayer for you

May your eyes be ever on the Lord, your helper
May you find your refuge in the Lord, your shelter
May you find Him closer than a brother all your days
All of your days!

And may your eyes be ever on the Lord, your helper
May you find your refuge in the Lord, your shelter
May you find Him closer than a brother all your days
All of your days!

May God give you eyes to see, He’s still greater
Courage to rise and believe He’s able
May God be your peace in the fire you’re walking through
This is my prayer now
This is my prayer for you!
For you!

Lyrics
I Will Fear No More

Every anxious thought that steals my breath
It’s a heavy weight upon my chest
As I lie awake and wonder what the future will hold
Help me to remember that You’re in control
You’re my courage when I worry in the dead of night
You’re my strength cause I’m not strong enough to win this fight
You are greater than the battle raging in my mind

I will trust you Lord
I will fear no more

I will lift my eyes I will lift my cares
Lay them in Your hands I’ll leave them there
When the wind and waves are coming You shelter me
Even though I’m in the storm the storm is not in me
You’re my courage when I worry in the dead of night
You’re my strength cause I’m not strong enough to win this fight
You are greater than the battle raging in my mind

I will trust You Lord
I will Fear No More

I will fear no more
I will fear no more

No power can come against me
Cause You have overcome
No darkness can overwhelm me
Cause You’ve already won
No power can come against me
Cause You have overcome
No darkness can overwhelm me
Cause You’ve already won

You’re my courage when I worry in the dead of night
You’re my strength cause I’m not strong enough to win this fight
You are greater than the battle raging in my mind

I will trust You Lord
I will fear no more

I will fear no more
I will fear no more
I will fear no more
I will fear no more
