I Will Not Be Shaken

It's a Monday morning and my heart is full of concerns for several friends facing really tough things.

A husband in the hospital after a heart attack.
A mother in the hospital after a stroke.
A friend in the hospital with a blood clot in the lungs.
A friend facing a valley of darkness that must be gone through today.

And then there's just the usual stuff.
Hormones.
Blech.
Chores.
Double Blech.
Monday morning work week crud.
Blech (but yes Lord, thank you for this job I love!)

So, I woke this morning with a praise song in my mind and on my heart to share with you all today.
I hope you can hear the song with me and praise our God today together with me.

We shall not be overcome.


I will declare my choice to the nations
I will shout for joy to the congregation
I will worship God, worship God
All my days

Those who love the Lord are satisfied
Those who trust in him are justified
I will serve my God, serve my God
All my days

When the nations crumble
The word of the Lord will stay
Kings may rise and fall
His love will endure
Though the strong may stumble
The joy of the Lord is strength

To my soul
I will not be shaken
I will not be moved
I will not be shaken

I will declare my joys to the nation
Hey I will shout for joy to the congregation
I will worship God, worship God
All my days

Those who love the Lord are satisfied
Those who trust in him are justified
I will serve my God, serve my God
All my days

When the nations crumble
The word of the Lord will stay
Kings may rise and fall
His love will endure
Though the strong may stumble
The joy of the Lord is strength

To my soul
I will not be shaken
I will not be moved
I will not be shaken

I will not be shaken
Keep my eyes on you Lord
I will not be moved
Keep my feet on the ride
I will not be shaken
Let him do something to you
I will not be moved
Anywhere you see, and anywhere you look
I will not be shaken
I will not be moved
I will not be shaken

  4. I needed this. I have a brother who is dying on brain cancer, and I am a nervous wreck over a job interview I have on Wednesday! I just need to keep my eyes on Christ and my feet on the firm foundation we have in Him! Thanks for the reminder!

  5. Oh my dear Emma. My heart stops in my tracks and goes with you. May you find enough to sustain your feet on this foundation. May you hear His still voice in the midst of your storms.
