I am so glad to be able to share a song this week for Music Monday!! I know, it's been too long. :)

I first heard this song earlier this year when a bloggy friend recommended it on Twitter. I listened to it at the gym, and literally raised my hands in the air while on the treadmill (and then quickly put them down, because I'm human and feared looking ridiculous). I wanted to do a cover of it then, but I put it off in hopes to become a little more familiar with it.

Then yesterday, I stumbled across it again while browsing iTunes. New Life Worship just released their own version of this wonderful song and even named their entire live worship album after it.

So after putting Micah to bed, I set aside some time and picked through this song. The words, the melody, everything just come together to make a powerful statement about who God is. He's strong and mighty. He is healer and creator.

I need this reminder every day in my life. But especially today.

252146_505104420636_9312_nToday marks 5 years since my precious Robinson family lost one of the sweetest, kindest-spirited souls I had ever met. After a year long battle with cancer, Jordan Robinson went home to be with Jesus at only 20 years old. My husband's younger brother and one of the greatest guys one could ever know. We named our son, Micah Jordan after him. I would be more than happy if he grew up to be just like his uncle.

Sometimes when God doesn't miraculously heal the ones we love, it can be easy to let that affect our view of God. It can be easy to question why and easy to let our faith slip into wondering if He really is that strong.

With us in the wilderness...

That sentence in this song gets me every time.

God is strong not because every circumstance in life turns out exactly like we hope... His strength is shown in being able to come down from heaven and pour out His spirit of comfort, love and peace in our lives amidst tragedy.

I mean it when I say that there is no way we could get through this life without God.

I pray that today, you will hear and believe these words. That God is strong. No matter what you are facing, He is there.    

Strong God

Father to the fatherless Defender of the weak Freedom for the prisoner We sing

This is God, in His holy place This is God, clothed in love and strength

Sing out, lift your voice and cry out Awesome is our strong God Mighty is our God

With us in the wilderness Faithful to provide Every breath and every step We see

This is God, in His holy place This is God, clothed in love and strength

Sing out, lift your voice and cry out Awesome is our strong God Mighty is our God Sing out, lift your hands and shout out Awesome is our strong God Mighty is our God

There is none higher, no There is none greater, no There is none stronger than our God
