Be 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.
In 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. Just click to enjoy the latest of my Smilebox ecards creations. 🙂
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.
