My God Who Provides
I wrote this song in September 2006. I wanted a song that affirms God's goodness no matter what hardships He brings us through, whether you're in the persecuted church or just suffering through normal tough times. God called Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son, and then stopped him. But God did NOT stop from sacrificing His beloved Son, demonstrating once for all the unrelenting love of God for His people (Rom 8:32). In the middle of the day I was writing this song, we found that my wife was miscarrying. God is faithful in all kinds of suffering, and is ALWAYS worthy of our trust. He is Yahweh Yireh (Hebrew for God's name and that He is the one who sees all and sees to it that all things work for His glory and the good of His people - often people use the more German Jehovah Jireh) .
Lullaby for Yahweh's Children (from Brahm's Lullaby)
This peaceful arrangement starts with me reading Scripture, but be sure to listen to the very sweet ending where 5 or 6 y/o Rachel, now all grown up, sings my song. Still brings happy tears... For those that have Jesus as Savior, we have the King of kings as our Abba, our Father! We get so worried and anxious, but Jesus tells us to REST in the loving care of our Heavenly Father (Matt 6:25-33). "Yahweh" is God's name in Hebrew, and means the One who IS, who CAUSES all that is, and ALWAYS is with those that are His.
Bridal Chorus ~ Softer Version
Some brides want a more subtle, romantic entrance than the traditional grand processional. This is my version.
