Memory Monday – Week 55

Over a year ago, I posted a song called We Won’t Be Shaken, which was written from Psalm 62. As I was listening to the song over the weekend I decided I wanted to share the verse, Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. Psalm 62:6

When I went back to look at what I said in that last post I made the statement, Despite what happens in this world or how many cycles it takes us to get pregnant, We Won’t Be Shaken!”. Well here we are, 14 cycles later and still no baby which is insignificant compared to our world being turned completely upside down when Kai passed away. We are in the middle of the storm. So the question I’m asking myself today is can I still declare the same thing, “I won’t be shaken”.

It’s not easy to understand this world and how it works. In fact, a lot of it doesn’t make sense at all. But, what I have learned through the trials is the only consistent thing is Jesus. His love doesn’t waver for us. He never changes. He is constantly there – as a solid rock and mighty fortress. In the midst of the storms and trials we are currently experiencing, the only solid thing we can stand on is the word of God. Relief doesn’t come when our baby has arrived and relief will never fully come from losing Kai. Relief is what we have now while we grieve and wait – our relief is our hope in Him! Despite that this year has gone nothing what I hoped or prayed for, I’m continuing to trust Him and declare we won’t be shaken!

Before letting your circumstances, trials, or tragedies shake you today, reflect on who God says He is. When we rest in Him, there is absolutely nothing that can shake us.

    Amen! We will not be shaken! This is such a good song! I’m praying for you always and I know that if we hold fast the confession of our hope, He who promised is faithful. (Heb 10:23). Love ya girl! xo

    What an edifying word, Caroline! It is during these times of waiting that we truly find out how anchored we are in the Solid Rock. And being anchored in Him is the only way we will not be shaken. Praying for you often and trusting God to give you strength, grace, and courage to stand, in spite of your circumstances. Much love to you!

    I’m so glad that our God is a consistent God. So so so true that He is our only relief…as soon as we put it in something else, we are shaken so I try to remember that He is my Hope so I won’t be shaken! Thanks for the reminder, Caroline!

    I love this song, and while I do get shaken by life more often than I care to admit sometimes, I am so grateful I am rooted in His Truth and Love. I know that my hope is in Him alone. The rest, while frustrating, just doesn’t matter in the end. Blessings to you, Caroline.

    Amen girl. So good!! Being “shaken” can look so different to me at times. Sometimes it’s not getting up from a chair and sharing a word, or sometimes it’s literally a paralyzing fear. So good to know that in all things—He is there and He is good.

    Such a great verse! You are so strong to not be shaken after all this time. I honestly don’t know if my conviction would be as strong, which I feel sounds so terrible. But I need to remember that like the verse says, He is our rock and salvation.

    Yes, girl! I’m so incredibly thankful that you believe it the only true God and that you know he is constant. One of my favorite worship songs has a line that says “He’s never failed and He won’t start now”. That one line alone can pretty much get me through any hard day. It makes my heart happy. Also, I needed to hear this word! Thanks so much for sharing. Xoxo

    I’ve been shaken a lot, I have to admit, but my faith is in God and I always come back to the knowledge that God loves me and He’s got whatever it is that I’m going through. I totally admire your strength and faith and I love the reminders you post here, I need them!

    gorgeous, as always. a good post to pull-up when things seem chaotic and hard — just focus on Jesus and keep your eyes on Him.

    Amen!

    I used to feel pulled in every direction by my circumstances, world events, and relationships. When I found Jesus, I suddenly felt I was standing on solid ground. No matter what is happening around me, He never wavers. He never shakes. Because of this I am steady and confident in life through Him.

    Thank you once again for sharing and inspiring.

    Blessings to you my friend.
    xoxo

    I found your post through the Oak and Oats linkup 🙂 I think it’s super cool that we picked the same topic/verse for our posts
    that is a favourite verse of mine, and what a promise it holds! as long as I rest in the fortress that is God, I will never be shaken!
    you write such encouraging honest words, thank you!
    blessings!
