Sunday's Song

Have a favorite worship song-new or old-
that you'd like to share? Have a story to go along
with why it's so special to you? Tell me what song
moves you and why-leave me a comment or, if you
want to blog about it, leave me a link to your blog!

I haven't done this the past 2 Sundays, and I've missed
doing it. Music really is a spiritual outlet for me.
I feel it in my soul. :)

This morning just as I had the thought that we were
actually going to make it to church (we've been once
in the last 6 weeks or so due to illnesses that seem to
spring up on the weekends!) Satan stepped in yet again.

I kid you not, within 10 minutes of me telling everyone
to go get dressed for church Noah began squalling,
complaining that his ear hurt.

He went from being totally fine to crying and running
fever. In 10 minutes.

There must really be something going on at church
that Satan doesn't want us hearing!! It's getting
somewhat discouraging.

But after I put some drops in Noah's
ear and gave him some acetaminophen
Paul decided we would at least watch a Christian
movie since we weren't going to make it
to church.

We watched Joseph King of Dreams. If you've never
seen this movie, I highly recommend it.

It tells the Biblical story of Joseph with surprising
accuracy. The kids love it and afterward, Paul had a short
discussion with the older kids about the point of the whole
Joseph story. It was really a good Bible lesson.

There is a song in the movie that I really love, and when
I heard it today, I just knew it was the one I needed
to blog about. I just love these lyrics!

{Joseph's character is voiced by Ben Affleck, but I'm
pretty sure it's not him singing.}

You Know Better Than I
Joseph The King of Dreams

I thought I did what's right
I thought I had the answer
I thought I chose the surest road
But that road brought me here
So I put up a fight
And told You how to help me
And just when I had given up
The truth is coming clear, for...

You know...Better Than I
You know...the way
I've let go...the need to know why
'Cause You know Better Than I

If this has been a test
I cannot see the reason
But maybe knowing,
I don't know
Is part of getting through
I try to do what's best
And faith has made it easy
To see the best thing I can do
Is put my faith in You, for...

Repeat Chorus

I saw one cloud, and thought it was the sky
I saw a bird and thought that I could follow
But it was You who taught that bird to fly
If I let You reach me... Will You teach me?

You know...Better Than I
You know...the way
I've let go...the need to know why
I'll take what answers You supply
'Cause You know Better Than I

Watch and hear the clip from the movie here:
Joy Williams also has a fantastic version of the song on
one of her cds.
BTW, I copied and pasted these words from a lyric
website and I had to correct a few of the lyrics and
some of the spelling, so please excuse any other
errors you find-they are not mine!! :)

I hope you had a blessed Sunday!

WOW!!!! Girl that was an Awesome song. We may need to borrow this movie for our trip to Houston this weekend. If that song doesn't tell a story of how i have felt the last year and a half i don't know what does.

The song and movie is new to me, but not the story of course. I have so many favorite worship songs!

I remember missing church when the kids were little. Especially as one kid gets sick and then passes it on to his brother. Hope he's feeling better soon!
