You Raise me Up

As I make my way though this weary world I take great comfort in knowing that in my weakest moments, when I am tired and just feel like I can’t take another step, God’s there to be my strength. He stands ready to lift me up, and supply my every need. How encouraging to know that. through, my brokenness His light can shine even brighter. When our lives are hidden in Christ, we become so much more than we could ever hope to be without Him. He is enough!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20 NIV

Last week I shared with you the song Fallen Chains written by 16 year old Lexi. Here she is again with a beautiful acapela version of You Raise me Up. Enjoy!


Held in His Grace,

Melissa

"I am strong when I am on Your shoulders."

Not feeling very strong today, so this song is just what I needed to hear. What a beautiful voice Lexi has. I hope we'll be hearing more of her for years to come.

How surprised and pleased I was to recognize Lexi when I came to your blog. I love this girl and also her mom Jill. Jill is one of my very favorite blogging friends. If you're a friend of Jill's then you're a friend of mine.

I love how you wrote that you were born with the gift of cerebral palsy. What a wonderful perspective. I'm learning slowly that through trials that these are simply opportunities to trust God.

So nice to meet you and loved hearing Lexi!

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Thank you all for the sweet comments about her singing! She giggles at this video now because she has grown so much in her singing ability and gifts that God continues to stretch her in!

Blessings,
Jill
PS She is currently writing two more songs with hopes of recording her first CD soon! Please pray for her to focus on the project God clearly has before her now!
