I came across this song yesterday when looking through some old “4Him” songs on youtube. Someone put together a beautiful slide show with this song and I wanted to share it with you. This song has always moved me – the lyrics are amazing – and I find myself inspired by them. It is amazing the love of our Lord Jesus – and the faith that it instills in me.
On an interesting side-note: I learned yesterday that a friend and former co-worker from Renton Christian School, Melodee St. Clair – lost her 24-year-old son a few days ago. Her daughter, Chelsea is also a former student of mine years ago when she was in junior high. I had already chosen this song and written a few notes about it. Even more I am convinced that this song is one of those ‘perfect timing’ moments that is more than coincidence.
There are times in our lives where having simple faith is hard. It writes well and sounds good – but if we’re honest – faith is sometimes just – faith. You can’t see it – or touch it – and sometimes you can’t even feel it. It just simply – is. The longer I live and see God’s hand on my life and in my shortcomings and circumstances – I am more convinced than ever that this simple faith – is enough. It is our simple trust and dependence on God – that makes Him smile. And I know that it is He who sustains me – watches over me and love me unconditionally. “It is a peace like a child sleeping…” and much, much more.
I pray you will enjoy the following video as much as I did – and that it will build up your faith today.
And for Melodee St. Clair, Chelsea and the rest of your family – this is for you.
