music monday// shoulders

itsss monndaayy!
this sonngg! i checked it out just this past weekend. and i loved, loved it! 
i've always been a big fan of for King & country. and when moriah peters got hitched to Joel i loved them even more. ;) hihihihi

aside the richness of the lyrics, i love this song because of how God mysteriously provides help to the characters in the music video through an angel who helps each of them. the whole hooded figure makes it so intriguing. 

have your fill! :)

shoulders// for King & country
When confusion's my companion
And despair holds me for ransom
I will feel no fear
I know that You are near

When I'm caught deep in the valley
With chaos for my company
I'll find my comfort here
‘Cause I know that You are near

My help comes from You
You're right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders
Your shoulders
My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don't have to see to believe that You're lifting me up on Your shoulders
Your shoulders

You mend what once was shattered
And You turn my tears to laughter
Your forgiveness is my fortress
Oh Your mercy is relentless

My help is from You
Don't have to see it to believe it
My help is from you
Don't have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it's true

My help is from You
Don't have to see it to believe it
My help is from you
Don't have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it's true

 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from? 
 My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
    He who watches over you will not slumber; 
 indeed, He who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

 The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 
 the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    He will watch over your life; 
 the Lord will watch over your coming and going    both now and forevermore.// psalm 121:1-8

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling, 
 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
For He will command His angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways; 
 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.// psalm 91:9-12

 “Because He loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for He acknowledges my name. 
 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him. 
 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”// psalm 91:14-16

Praise the LORD, you angels, you mighty ones who carry out His plans, listening for each of His commands.// psalm 103:20
 our help really comes from the Lord. sometimes we kinda forget, right? in the video right before the crash Joel was all worried, so of course the enemy stood on that and made him lose his awareness of where he was and BAM! the other car hit right into his.

 moral? when something bugs you, channel all the worries into prayer instead. thankfully, we have angels on assignment who help us when we tell God what's going on in our lives and submit our requests a.k.a prayer. 

and sometimes we make it by the skin of our teeth like Joel did. and He sends help.
our angels are always with us, waiting for us to talk to God i prayer so that he can help us.
this song reminds me of a book on angels i finished reading earlier on this year titled Angels on Assignment by Charles and Frances Hunter. it gives much explanation to how angels operate.

angels are so real. they are the means by which God answers our prayers. they protect us, guide us, even communicate with us.
I've come to really understand that God loves us so much!
  as our Father, He wants the best for us. so if you're having a bad day or week or month do remember that God is waiting for you to talk to Him, and His answers are not always, yes. sometimes they are "no" or "wait."

He has us on His shoulders, He's cool like that! :)
xoxo, delali!
