You Say What Needs Saying at Just the Right Time

After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:

“Do not be afraid, Abram.
    I am your shield,
    your very great reward.”

  • Genesis 15:1

So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, …

  • 1 Corinthians 5:4

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low
Remind me once again just who I am because I need to know
Ooh oh

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And you say I am held when I am falling short
And when I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity
Ooh oh

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And you say I am held when I am falling short
And when I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh, I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh, I believe

Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet
You have every failure, God, You have every victory
Ooh oh

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh, I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

Oh, I believe (I)
Yes I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

My wife went out on Thursday for light grocery shopping.  She and I rarely listen to the radio anymore when we are together, but we both listen to Christian radio if we are alone in the car.  Thus, we are never really alone.

When she turned the radio on, she heard the song quoted above by Lauren Daigle.  She nearly had to pull over.  The first line grabbed her.  She was sobbing, thinking of our son who is getting worse instead of better – hopefully in the short term. The song is called, You Say.

But that’s how God works.  We were at our wits’ end, and God let us know He was there.  Our son, under the influence of new medication to stop seizures, was hearing voices, telling him bad things about himself, just as Lauren Daigle says in the first line of the song.

Whether this song helps our son get through these tough times, it does not really matter.  God will get him through, just as God got my wife to the grocery store and back, showing her that He was with her, in a real way.

Soli Deo Gloria.  Only to God be the Glory.

  1. Oh my friends, my heart is aching for you and what you’re going through. I pray that God will heal your son and work within his body and mind to nurture and give him the inner strength to overcome his seizures. We know that with God all things are possible. Peace to you, brother.

  2. God is amazing at finding avenues by which to deliver messages that are needed just at the right time.Of course he knew you listened to gospel singing. That helps.
