"Strong Enough to Save"


(by Tenth Avenue North) Strong Enough to Save - The Light Meets the Dark



In Bible study today, we'll be discussing the well-known story in Luke 8 (among other things) ~ the story where Jesus fell asleep in the boat, and a terrible storm arose. The disciples freaked out & woke Jesus up and rebuked the wind & waves. And they obeyed! Every time I read those words, I hear Tenth Avenue North singing,

"The One the wind & waves obey is strong enough to save you."

So good & true! It's another one of those lines that makes my heart do a somersault (like I mentioned in another recent post)! If you haven't heard today's song, you really need to push the play button! {I think you have to watch it on YouTube, but be sure to come back here & read the lyrics!} I was going to type my favorite parts of the song, but I have several! So here are all of the lyrics, and a few of my favorites are in italics! ;)

"You fought, but you were just too weak
So you lost all the things you try to keep
Now you're on your knees, you're on your knees

But wait, everything can change in a moment's time
You don't have to be afraid
Fear is just a lie
Open up your eyes

And He'll break open the skies to save those who cry out His name
The One the wind & waves obey is strong enough to save you

Look, now it's not too late
Lift up your head
Let the rain fall on your face
You're not too far from grace, you're not too far from grace

He'll break open the skies...

I know the weight of this world can take you down like gravity
And I now the current of yourself can take you out, out to sea
But hold on, hold on

He'll break open the skies..."

That is so good. He reminds me of a young clean shaven Jeremy, except the close ups :)
