This is for you, Sister!



My best friend and dear sister Facebooked this message:
Have to re-test on IM injections on Tuesday :( I was prepared but get too frazzled. Passed on ID and SQ injections though!

Then she commented:
Looking for a really encouraging song to get me through the next two weeks...T~ you should be able to find one for me, right?

Ugh, pressure. Do you think I could have come up with anything? I thought and thought. Then suggested Natalie Grant's "Perfect People" and Steven Curtis Chapman's "Dive".

That's what I came up with.

Well this morning, I woke at 5:25, looked out the window, then got in the shower. There wasn't much snow at all. Ten minutes later the school recording was on the machine. We called Wee Care. CLOSED. Oh well, I'm up!

Because I am not doing my regular routine, I am listening to K-Love. I am NEVER on the computer at this time. And if I am, I am not listening to K-Love. So today, when I needed to hear the song that Jeannette needs to hear, I knew it was God (of course).

He always provides the answers if we have the eyes to see and the ears to hear. On Sunday, we were talking about when Jesus was on the cross and he was calling out. The people thought he was saying Elijah (Eli Eli). But he was calling for God (Eloi Eloi.) They heard but were not listening.

But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. Matthew 13:16

Britt Nicole was on K-Love's morning show yesterday. "If you missed it, here is her new song". The moment I heard it, I knew. I knew that was the inspirational song that I was to share with JeannieHopes.

Wait until you hear it! (click here) Sorry, it's only 30 seconds. But here are the lyrics:


You look around and staring back at you
Another wave of doubt
Will it pull you under
You wonder
What if i'm overtaken
What if i never make it
What if no one's there
Will you hear my prayer?
When you take that first step
Into the unknown
You know that he won't let you go

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water too

So get out and let your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste, don't wait
And don't you turn around, and miss out on
Everything you were made for
Gotta be, I know you're not sure, more
So you play it safe, you try to run away
If you take that first step
Into the unknown
He won't let you go

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water too

Step out, even when it's storming
Step out, even when you're broken
Step out, even when your heart is telling you,
telling you to give up
Step out, when your hope is stolen
Step out, you can't see where you're going
You don't have to be afraid
So what are waiting, what are you waiting for

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water,
walk on the water too


But here is a commentary by Britt herself about why she wrote the song. She is such a good role model for our young girls!


If you look, you will see God in all we do...the big AND the little things. All the Glory to God.


If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 4:11
