This restful picture taken with my easy to use digital camera includes some of the encouraging Bible verses from Psalm 46 which are a blessing to the Sandwich Generation dealing with trials and tribulationsBe Still and Know That God is The Strength The Sandwich Generation Needs! When I wrote that article for Word-Filled Wednesday, I was also praying a lot for a dear friend who was going through a deep dark valley. The comforting Bible verses from Psalm 46 were blessing me and I wanted to share them with you, as well as her.

I Call You Friend - Marty Goetz songs to encourage the Sandwich GenerationIn the process of writing that article, I started looking for one of the sweet old praise and worship hymn songs based directly on Scripture that we used to sing in church. I didn't find what I was looking for. BUT I did find a favorite praise and worship musician we were blessed by at our old church a couple of times, many years ago – back when my sweet husband was here and my kids were little. What delightful family memories as I enjoyed watching Marty Goetz on YouTube and listening to his wonderful music.

Marty Goetz is a wonderful singer who can be as serious as can be, and also as funny as can be, depending on the song, the music, and the moment. 

In this serious hymn song, I Am, he reminds us that,

The Lord of Hosts is with us

The God of Jacob is our refuge

When the nations rage and all the kingdoms fall

He says I Am, I Am, I Am all

and again, points us back to Psalm 46, "be still and KNOW that HE is GOD."

Between news headlines and issues going on for friends and family this week, this song has definitely been a joy to me and I pray it will be to you and your family as well – from the senior parents on down to the young grandchildren.

Check back tomorrow for another of Marty Goetz songs – this time it's his fun and lighthearted "biography." It never fails to put a big smile on my face and I hope it will on yours as well, as you go about dealing with the Sandwich Generation issues of caring for elderly parents while raising children or babysitting grandchildren.  For more comforting Bible verses and lovely music, be sure to check out Spiritual Sunday.

  1. Blessings Kaye… What a heart warming JOY to see you on SONday with such beautiful encouragement and music. I think I remember Marty Goetz songs from quite some time ago… I’ll know maybe after listening to more of him. I enjoyed the sample of “I am”
    I love how you placed your WFW in the center of the blue flowers. Should I have been able to click on the play button and hear or watch something? well, I couldn’t get it to work… but you have some many good clicks to enjoy anyways and wonderful words of wisdom and comfort.

    I’m so thankful, we can BE STILL and know the great I AM! Beautiful combination! Thank you so much, Kaye! I pray that your SONday is filled with love and wonderful moments!

    Happy SOS and Spiritual Sunday!

    I AM. It is incredible how that name sums up so much for us. He alone is God and he alone is able to do beyond what we can ever imagine; holding all power, love and mercy

Thanks so much for the heads up Peggy – it apparently got some bad code mixed in with the good code (guess I should have paid more attention to the sneezing of it’s “head code” – hehehehehe) Should be all fixed now plus I have another of his songs up today 🙂 Thanks again and have a lovely week!
