Speaking Louder Than Before

If any of you said a prayer for my arm after reading my post yesterday I would like to thank you SO much! And thank God even more for hearing those prayers! After a week and a half I was resigned to a slow healing ... and after last night's marathon evening on the computer (don't ask me why) I thought I'd foolishly be in big pain today. I'm happy to report it's feeling much better amazingly! I've still got a ways to go but I'm so tickled with no shooting pain I'm giddy.

I'm going to make a small post so I don't push things. I want to share my new favorite song but was unable to find it on @playlist. The boys even surprised me tonight by coming in from playing outside singing it. I was really impressed by this since I have only heard it on the radio a few times. (Of course after singing their hearts out their question was, "What is "desperation," mom?"--And my four year old who is a HOOT especially lately chimed in to answer their own question, "It's about GOD!"

Here are the lyrics in case you haven't heard it yet. Very good. And it's got a good beat too.

Speaking Louder Than Before
Jeremy Camp

Hear now this declaration
From out across the nations
We need to wake up and understand

Many hurting hearts are crying
But our voices seem to be dying
Can you see the battle raging on?

We are the light to reach this world
We are the salt preserving these souls
Let's show them the love that we've received now

We are, we are in desperation
We need to reach this generation
We are speaking louder than before

We are the hope that's been forgotten
We have the love that will be brought and
We are speaking louder than before

Take every chance that you can
Move together taking a stand
Never losing heart, we'll speak as one

We need to be the image of Christ
Show love and serve at all times
We can make a difference in these lands

We are the light to reach this world
We are the salt preserving these souls
Let's show them the love that we've received now

We are, we are in desperation
We need to reach this generation
We are speaking louder than before

We are the hope that's been forgotten
We have the love that will be brought and
We are speaking louder than before

Every thing's so surreal
But this urgency I feel
We should be reaching out to
All these desperate pleas

Oh, the meet is real, can't you feel
Let's call it revolution
My beating heart is breaking for them
That's why I'm speaking now
That's why I'm speaking now

We are, we are in desperation
We need to reach this generation
We are speaking louder than before

We are the hope that's been forgotten
We are the love that will be brought and
We are speaking louder than before

We are, we are, we are, we're speaking louder
We are, we are, we are, we're speaking louder
We are, we are, we are, louder than before
We are speaking louder than before, oh yeah

So glad to hear your arm is feeling better! Praise the Lord for speedy healing! On a similiar note, I haven't had any pain since Tuesday night! So nice!!!

Thanks for sharing the lyrics to that song. I love Jeremy Camp, but I don't think I've heard that one before. I'll have to find it! :)

How wonderful that your pain is lessening. God is good indeed!

My local Christian radio station has been playing that song a lot lately. Maybe it was just released? I have two stations I love and contemporary Christian music and worship music is all that I ever have on in the car. My girls call it "God and Jesus music" and always ask me "what's this song teaching us" when we hear a new one. I love to hear them sing along. How cute for your boys to ask a definition and then answer it on their own.
PS- you have to let me know what bows you want from Mandi's fundraiser win!!

Jeremy Camp is one of my favorites! Gabe & Coop love this song too, the boys can all sing this one together! And what better lyrics for them to be singing than the lyrics of this song!

I am happy that your arm is so much better. I'll continue to pray for a full recovery!
