The Words I Would Say by Sidewalk Prophets

I first published this April 22, 2012 and this song has been on my heart to re-share it with you. So I am republishing this. I encourage you to stay strong in the Lord and never give up. The Lord has great things planned for you!

This is a video I want to share with you. This is a very encouraging song. I was feeling discouraged the other day. I went out to eat and the place I went out to eat was playing this song on the radio. I didn’t ever imagine a Christian song to be playing. After this song I heard a few other Christian songs playing too. I think they had it on a Christian station. I was at Bojangles in Pigeon Forge, TN. I got discouraged after I was suppose to have a job interview in Gatlinburg, TN. As I arrived and got parked they called me to reschedule the interview. This song reminded me that God had better plans for me then to work at that place.

This I believe is my life song right now. It is a song that when I pass on, I want played at my Celebration of Life, because I have a Know Soul Salvation that when I die I will go onto Heaven and I want to leave this song as an encouragement to those who have been left on Earth Behind me that they may have the same hope in the Lord that I do.

Below is the song I want to share with you. Below is the part that caught my attention.

Be strong in the Lord
And Never Give up Hope
You’re gonna do great things
I already know
God’s got his hand on you
So don’t live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

    Yes, God knows His perfect plans for us, and will reveal them in His time!

    1. So true we may not like it but we must be faithful and follow

  2. So true in God’s time.
