Worship Wednesday – Still, My Soul Be Still

Worship WednesdayIf you’ve ever spent time around small children, you’ve probably heard one of them singing to herself. The song may not have words; it’s probably tuneless moving up and down without any structure. I sang like this when I was little. Sometimes, it was just for fun, but sometimes, it was when I needed a comforting song and I had none that to sing.

Sometimes, when you’re struggling to remember God’s love for you, you just have to make up your own lullaby.

That is what I felt when I heard this song. I stumbled upon it last night by accident, just in time since this morning was such a disaster. (I’ll give you three words – Department of Motor Vehicles.) I nearly had an anxiety attack when it seemed like one thing went wrong after another, but when I began to play this song, I was reassured that there is peace in God.

I wonder sometimes why we’re so afraid to be like children. Sometime we do need to sing a song to remind ourselves of the truths that we really hold dear; sometime we need to declare God’s love out loud to give ourselves courage and remember God’s strength. To remember His love.

Still, My Soul Be Still

Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend

Still my soul be still
And do not fear
Though winds of change may rage tomorrow
 God is at your side
No longer dread
The fires of unexpected sorrow
God You are my God
And I will trust in You and not be shaken
Lord of peace renew
A steadfast spirit within me
To rest in You alone
Still my soul be still
Do not be moved
By lesser lights and fleeting shadows
Hold onto His ways
With shield of faith
Against temptations flaming arrows
Still my soul be still
Do not forsake
The Truth you learned in the beginning
Wait upon the Lord
And hope will rise As stars appear when day is dimming
I’m Not the Only One Singing
I sing to remind myself that everyone will be okay because my hope is in the one true God. My God, however is the One bringing everything to pass for my good and for His glory. His song is always over me, when I’m singing and when I’m not. And for that, I shall sing all the more; I shall take comfort in my Father’s song.
