Lightbulb Songs that Inspire and Encourage us........

Music has always been a major source of inspiration and encouragement in my life so here is a thread where we can all share songs that have made an impact on us spiritually..........

I heard "Will Not be Moved" by Natalie Grant on the radio today and was left with a WOW!!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WpFid43xW8

"Anyway" by Martina McBride has also been a real encouragement to me lately when that 'what's the use?!' feeling gets me

Chemar -- I loved Anyway by Martina McBride. What a great idea for a thread.

One of my current favorites is God With Us, by Mercy Me.

Does it have to be a song that's by a current day artist? If not then I'll choose 2 of my all time favorites.........

Take My Hand Precious Lord

It is No Secret what God can Do





God Bless,

Marilyn

The chimes of time ring out the news
Another day is through
Someone slipped and fell
Was that someone you?

You may have longed for added strength
Your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened
For I have news for you

It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others, He'll do for you
With arms wide open, He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

There is no night for in His light
You never walk alone
Always feel at home
Wherever you may go

There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side
Take Him at His promise
Don't run away and hide

It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others, He'll do for you
With arms wide open, He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do


TRIVIA:
The title for this song is thought to have been taken from a chance
remark that actor John Wayne once made to Staurt Hamblen. The writer
then proceeded to complete the song in under ten minutes.
