In Christ Alone

I started this blog to keep a record of my life as my husband serves our country. I also wanted a place for prayer requests and updates for David.

One of my favorite songs is "In Christ Alone" and I know I will not be able to make it thought this next year without Him. Just reading the words sums it up. 'He is my light, my strength, my song', awe what an awesome God we have. We all have hope, He is our hope, He is our strength, our love!!!

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.


On sunday oct 25th, David and I went forward at church to have a special time of prayer with our pastor. It was amazing, we took our girls up with us. I did this to show them what a body of christ does. How they pray and show love to one another. I really want God to be real in their lives this coming year.
Pastor Sam started off by saying 'thank you to David for serving his country, and when he did that the congregations stood up and clap. It was overwhelming and amazing to see. I was not expecting anything like that. What an awesome God we serve. After the prayer, some many people, many I don't know came by and just loved us, gave us hugs, and cards with phone numbers, offers to help. I was and am truly amazed by it all. What a mighty God we serve!!
