I’m Encouraged

27 01 2015

So we have been greatly encouraged in the midst of our troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives us new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord.  I Thessalonians 3:7-8 

Thomas Whitfield is one of my favorite Gospel song writers.  The words and melodies of his songs continue to be a source of inspiration and uplifting to me.   “I’m Encouraged” is a favorite among favorites.  During different seasons in my life, this song was the first song played and listened to throughout the day.  It was a mantra that kept my heart and mind focused on the goodness of the Lord and helped to strengthen my faith muscles when I needed it most.

May be you have a song that you keep close to your heart when you need it; a go-to song that helps to remind you of the faithfulness of our Heavenly Father.  You might have a first morning hymn that gets your heart and mind focused on Jesus.  I am thankful for the gift of song and the power of inspirational music that keeps us going and keeps us encouraged.  (Please feel free to add your favorite faith song in the comments section)

 

I’m Encouraged

By Thomas Whitfield

I’m encouraged Yes to stay with Jesus, Jesus I’m encouraged To stay with the Lord

Ohh-ohh-ohh ohh I’m encouraged Yes to stay with Jesus, Jesus I’m encouraged To stay with the Lord

I keep the devil running And I’m so glad I’m offering God The highest praise today

And if it seems like victory’s fading I’m going to trust Him Knowing all things work for good In Jesus name

Now faith is still the substance Of things hoped for I don’t know just what you Want the Lord to do

Because He’s never slacked In His promise Why not trust Him

To restore you with new power And your testimony too

Now I’m going all the way You can’t stop me

Even though I might lose a friend along the way

But because He lives I know I can face tomorrow

And thank you Lord I’m gonna praise Your name today 

I’m encouraged, I’m encouraged, I’m encouraged, I’m encouraged, To stay with the Lord

I’m encouraged To stay with the Lord I’m encouraged To stay with the Lord (repeat as needed- out)
