Remembering Maria: Mourning the loss of Steven Curtis Chapman’s Daughter

I’m just now catching up on the news of the loss of Maria — the 5 year old daughter of Steven Curtis Chapman. I visited the web site the family has set up in memory of her and was touched by the family’s expression of love for their child and the sense of hope that is left in sharing their loss.

God is God

This has been a trying week… but in that a time to trust Him. Today as I was on my way to have my health checked, I was listening to this song.  In particular this line jumped out at me and brought light to my week: “…the questions without answers/ Come and paralyze the dancer …”

At the moment that I write this blog, there are many unanswered questions that challenge me greatly!  However, as I saught God in service today, he showed up and put everything in perspective– just as this song had been reminding me earlier today.  Check out the lyrics below.

“God Is God”
by Steven Curtis Chapman

And the pain falls like a curtain
On the things I once called certain
And I have to say the words I fear the most
I just don’t know

And the questions without answers
Come and paralyze the dancer
So I stand here on the stage afraid to move
Afraid to fall, oh, but fall I must
On this truth that my life has been formed from the dust

God is God and I am not
I can only see a part of the picture He’s painting
God is God and I am man
So I’ll never understand it all
For only God is God

And the sky begins to thunder
And I’m filled with awe and wonder
‘Til the only burning question that remains
Is who am I

Can I form a single mountain
Take the stars in hand and count them
Can I even take a breath without God giving it to me
He is first and last before all that has been
Beyond all that will pass

Oh, how great are the riches of His wisdom and knowledge
How unsearchable for to Him and through Him and from Him are all things

So let us worship before the throne
Of the One who is worthy of worship alone

God is God and I am not
I can only see a part of the picture He’s painting
God is God and I am man
So I’ll never understand it all
For only God is God

And that’s just it… IT’S TIME TO WORSHIP GOD!  I can only look at my situations and do so much about them, but God is God in everything and he is my everything.  So what worries could I have.

My health screening came back NEGATIVE!  I can rejoice in that!  God has sustained me this far… I can rejoice again in that!  I’ve been in worse situations than this… and have seen him deliver me out of them all… so I can keep on rejoicing in that!

I just began to worship and praise him in the service.  The whole congregation was overwhelmed in the Spirit of God.  lol… we tore up the church y’all!

So REJOICE in the Lord… and AGAIN I SAY REJOICE because GOD IS GOD!

the comment section is now open for testimonies and praise reports!
