Sovereign Over Us
Aaron Keys

There is strength within the sorrow, There is beauty in our tears
You meet us in our mourning, With a love that casts out fear
You are working in our waiting, Sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding, You’re teaching us to trust

Your plans are still to prosper, You have not forgotten us
You’re with us in the fire and the flood
Faithful forever, Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us

You are wisdom unimagined, Who could understand your ways
Reigning high above the heavens, Reaching down in endless grace
Youʼre the Lifter of the lowly, Compassionate and kind
You surround and You uphold me, Your promises are my delight

Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good, You turn it for our good and for your glory
Even in the valley You are faithful
Youʼre working for our good, Youʼre working for our good and for your glory

I love music. It moves my soul to a deeper connection with my creator and Savior. These words resonate with me to my core. Faithful forever, perfect in love…even what the enemy means for evil…you turn it for our good, you turn it for your glory. These words all make a lot of sense and speak to my soul.

This week I was asked if I felt I would have dealt with my journey differently had it gone south. This is where the confidence of my future in Christ makes that answer seem basic and simple. I recall the moments of despair and fear creeped in when I focused on our girls and how their lives could change. But for me I felt an overwhelming amount of peace. This only comes from the giver of Life. His sovereignty is what I cling to today, tomorrow and even on November 6. Listen to this song. It talks all about the attributes of our sovereign Father.

    usually our fear involves others, not so much ourselves. As moms, we think of our children, no matter how young or old they are at the time of our ‘trouble’. Your wisdom shows through. And your great taste in music as well :) Music has gotten me through some incredibly hard times – and there’s so much great music out there to comfort and encourage us. Love you sweetie!

    I love that song, Allie! I haven’t heard it before, and I just listened to it for the first time. What words of truth. Praying for you and looking forward to fishbowl this week. xoxo
