“My God is so big, so strong and so mighty!”

Do you know this children’s song?

I hadn’t thought of it in years until our friends were over last weekend with their three year old. He’s just learned the words to “My God is so big, so strong and so mighty!”

And as we sang it with him on Sunday night, the words resonated with me anew.IMG_1052

All week I’ve had the tune stuck in my head and I’ve found myself singing it as I go about my day.

But, not until today did it finally hit me.

God gave me this song for this week to remind me that no matter how big the Goliath in my life, my God is bigger.

I finished reading Chapter 7 of “Stressed-Less Living” today.

And I smiled.

My God is bigger.

Than Goliath,

or broken relationships,

or addictions

or families in crisis

or the lost job

or the Prodigal Son who has turned his back on God.

Bigger than tornadoes.

Bigger than terrorist attacks.

Bigger than storms of whatever kind.

My God is SO Big!

As I finished up the chapter today, I read through the entire chapter of Psalm 43.

It sums up this concept perfectly.

I printed it out and made copies.

One for my journal.

One for my desk at work.

One for my mirror in my bathroom and

one for my fridge.

Read the words and let the reality of just how big our God is clothe you in his mercy and grace.

Vindicate me, my God,
and plead my cause
against an unfaithful nation.
Rescue me from those who are
deceitful and wicked.
You are God my stronghold.
Why have you rejected me?
Why must I go about mourning,
oppressed by the enemy?
Send me your light and your faithful care,
let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you dwell.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
O God, my God.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.ps 43_5
