Our God is mighty and strong

Everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me

Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen King

This song popped in my head when I heard about the Earthquake this morning and decided to write a blog. In times of crisis as humans we often say to ourself, "why, why is this happening?" We riddle ourselves with questions that we have no answers too and could never possible truly answer. We are mere mortal men, how could we possibly shine any light to the magnitude of His power? We can't. We simply must remember always, He is mighty to save. Always and forever mighty. We have no answers with Him, but with Him, we have the assurance of a better place. What is happening in the world today is devastating of course, but if 1 person who previously didn't believe turns his life over to God because of this tragedy, His kingdom gains glory and that is magnificent. He by no means does things to bring glory to Himself, but He deserves it nonetheless. His hands parted the red sea, completely, and allowed the Israelite's to walk safely across. Today, His hands rocked the oceans, trembled the ground. It's sad, it's heartbreaking, but it's TRUTH.
