We won't be shaken!

So far, it appears that 2013 is presenting me with wave after wave of trouble. Parts of our house was destroyed by gale force winds which required renovation. The fencing people did a less than decent job and took 2 months to fix their mistakes. The painters caused us an absolutely nightmare as they broke many many things, and did such a terrible job painting that none of the bathroom doors close anymore. They also ruined the carpet which meant we had to get all the carpets relayed. The day after the carpets were finished, our house was robbed. 

And just when I thought I had learned my lesson- just when I thought God was done teaching me to forgive and love, another wave hits me. A huge traffic jam caused me to miss an important meeting, thereby threatening my ability to graduate on time/ and my enrollment. And these are only the bigger things, let's not mention difficulties with my health, relationships and finances. 


I have to admit, I was pretty bitter for a while. I harbored bitter thoughts against those who would go out of their way to make my life miserable. But God was slowly changing me, he taught me to apologize for my rude behaviour towards these people who have caused havoc on my life. And I didn't even realise how poisoned my heart had been. But I was given an opportunity to lead bible study last night, it was about Love Luke 6: 27-42 . For we are children of God. We are told to first love God with everything, then second, to love our neighbors as ourselves. And this love is not just with actions but also with our attitudes. I am extremely humbled by my circumstances. 

Hopefully, I can sing out the battle cry - we won't be shaken- when the next wave hits, for I know Jesus never promised that our lives here on earth would be smooth, but he promised to be with us during these storms. 


Building 429 - We Won't Be Shaken
From the album We Won't Be Shaken (Single)

This world has nothing for me
This life is not my own
I know you go before me
And I am not alone
This mountain rises higher
This way seems so unclear
But I know that you go with me
I will trust in you

Whatever will come my way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
Oooh Oh Oh
Oooh Oh Oh
Oooh Oh Oh
No we won't be shaken

You know my every longing
You've heard my every prayer
You've held me in my weakness
Cause you are always there
So I'll stand in full surrender
It's your way and not my own
My mind is set on nothing less
Than you and you alone
I will not be moved oh

Whatever will come my way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken

(3x)
We will trust in you
We will not be moved
We will trust in you
