Wednesday Worship: I Will Not Be Moved

Last night was one of those nights where I battled. Satan’s fiery darts were coming fast and furious as I struggled through the fears, doubts, questions, what if’s, and worry about the future.

I am clinging to the promise of His solid rock this morning. I am weary. I am broken. I am worn. But I will not be moved.

I have been a wayward child,
I have acted out,
I have questioned sovereignty,
and had my share of doubts,

And though sometimes,
my prayers feel like the mountain of the sky,
the hand that holds won’t let me go,
and is the reason why

I will stumble, I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But I will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

Bitterness has plagued my heart,
many times before,
My life has been a broken glass,
that I have kept restored,
of all my shattered dreams,
and though it seemed,
that I was far too gone,
my brokenness helped me to see,
it’s grace I’m standing on.

I will stumble, I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But I will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

And chaos in my life,
has been a badge of war,
and though I have been torn,
I will not be moved

I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But i will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
all other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

  1. I heard your song pick on the radio today driving to bible study. Then, in Bible Study, Acts 2 references King David in saying:

    ‘I saw the Lord always before me.
    Because he is at my right hand,
    I will not be If hope is born of suffering.
    If this is only the beginning.
    Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior? shaken.
    26Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will live in hope,
    27because you will not abandon me to the grave,
    nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
    28You have made known to me the paths of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.'[psalm 16:8-11].

    I love the strong action verbs in this passage…my tongue REJOICES, my body HOPES, my heart IS GLAD, you WILL NO ABANDON me. Like Natalie (great name) Grant says “If hope is born of suffering.
    If this is only the beginning. Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior? This is what it means to be held.” Held in our times of despair, holding on b/c hope remains in the person/body of Jesus Christ
