An Unstoppable God: Celebrating Through Song

I heard this song on the radio, and it reminded me of the passion I once had for the work Jesus was (and is) doing in Northern Nigeria, especially with the Chibok girls.

I even made a video about the girls with this song as the soundtrack. While much has changed, Jesus’ power has not. I wanted to go through the lyrics that most encouraged me– and will most encourage you.


Heaven thundered
And the world was born
Life begins and ends in the dust You formed – Jesus is in control, and is in control of Nigeria.
Faith commanded
And the mountains moved
Fear is losing ground, to our hope in You
In all of the pain and anguish found in Nigeria, Jesus is winning. Fear is losing ground to Christ.
Unstoppable God
Let Your glory go on and on
Impossible things
In Your name, they shall be done
” – The “Impossible” thing– freeing the Chibok girls– has been done, with around 200 girls being found and freed!

The rest of the song– the next stanza and chorus– continues to speak of Jesus freeing us and conquering sin and darkness. What an amazing God we serve!

It has been 8 years since the 276 Chibok girls were kidnapped, and there is still much to pray over and see happen from the Lord. But I remember when I would pray, asking that if He were to free even one girl, I would be overjoyed. And here we are, with hundreds of girls FREED!!!

I used to say that if Christ were to free even one girl, I would be overjoyed.

Honestly, I do not look at the evidence of God’s goodness “all over my life” enough… I get legalistic instead of resting in God’s goodness. But here I am, crying over the faithfulness of God!

Just as this song says, “When I called, you answered.” Jesus heard my cry over these girls back in 2014, and has worked mightily. He heard my cry– and still hears it today.

He heard my cry– and still hears it today.

There is still much to pray over for these girls, and for Nigeria in general. There is a lot to be done… but let’s celebrate. In a spirit of celebration and thanksgiving, let’s jam to this song!!! We serve an unstoppable God!!!

With Love, to all of my Friends & Followers,

What Truly Matters: The Death of Bob Saget

Many of you have already read the news: Bob Saget has passed away at the age of 65.

There seems to be no foul play or drug use. A legend, gone just like that.

Hearing such news and watching how others have spoken about him, has given me an admiration for Saget, and filled me with a question: What truly matters in this life?

We run after success, sex, pleasure, careers– but we will carry none of it past the grave.

I don’t want to be cliche here. But as I think about what matters, these thoughts come to mind: Knowing and Loving Jesus. Knowing and loving others. It really is that simple.

I don’t know where Bob Saget is now. That is between God and Him. But I pray that, as his family and friends mourn, they would run after what matters.

I love you all, and am so blessed and thankful to have you.

With Love, in Christ,

“Lift” by Audio Adrenaline

I lift you up, so high, I forget about the world I am livin’ in… lay it at your feet, I’m giving in.”

“Lift” by Audio Adrenaline

Sometimes we just need to get away from the everyday, mundane life, full of tragedy and pain…
and just worship our God.

I love this song, because it not only worships our God, but it points out the beauty of getting caught up in simply praising Him for who He is.

While we should never forget or push away what is going on in the world, we should never forget to love Jesus and worship Him with our whole selves, our whole lives. This is especially true of the holiday season.

May you lift Jesus high with me today.

In Christ,

Annalee

What’s Going on in Nigeria?

Hello friends,

It has been awhile since I’ve talked directly about Nigeria or the Chibok girls. Because of this, I wanted to take some time here to share about three things going on in Nigeria as we speak. Hopefully, by knowing these things, we can become more informed people of prayer.

Here they are:

  1. The “Boko Haram Kingpin” Nkunzi, a well-known Boko Haram leader, was shot dead in a gunfight on Tuesday. His body was found in Pretoria; his girlfriend was also found with bullet wounds, and was taken to the hospital. As depressing as this is, it is a direct answer to the prayer that God would humble those in Boko Haram and bring justice to those hurt by Boko Haram.
  2. Connected to the above event, there has been much gang warfare between the “original” or mainstream Boko Haram, and a breakaway group called Bafarasai. This warfare has claimed at least eight lives, with many of those lives being innocent. Please pray for these innocent people who are in great danger each time a bout of gang violence is had. This can also be seen as Boko Haram and other gangs demand money from the innocent for protection.
  3. There is a person that many people in Northern Nigeria are calling “John Wick,” and they are pointing to him for getting rid of Boko Haram gang members. While this is all speculation, it is very interesting that there might be a person hell-bent on killing off Boko Haram members. As said before, there seems to be a theme of vindication and justice happening as Boko Haram members are being humbled by the violence enacted towards them. Pray that if this person really exists, that they would know Christ and would be led of Him.

Crazy things are happening in Nigeria! I’ve enjoyed reading up on these stories. I may make it a weekly or bi-weekly thing, but we will see about that. Thank you all for reading, and for your prayers!

With Love in Christ,

When We are Overwhelmed

Shootings. The murder of Gabby Petito. Natural diasters. Global terrorism.

I have been overwhelmed with how much pain is in this world, and have felt so ovewhelmed that I didn’t know what to write about… but I thought it would be best to just be honest.

I’m tired of writing about tragedies, yet that is what this blog has been based upon. I would be remiss if I didn’t speak about these things.

As I sit here typing, a Bible verse comes to mind:

“When I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

(Psalm 56:3)

When I am overwhelmed, I can come to my Savior, and recieve the rest and rejuvination I so desperately need. And that is what I encourage all of you to do today, as well. Amidst all the bad news, we have a God who has Good News for us: He sent His Son to die for our sins, so that those who believe could live with Him for eternity.

We have a refuge in this battle called life. And when we feel overwhelmed, we can run to Him.

Have a beautiful day.

In Christ,

Video – Afghanistan: What is Happening to Christians?

Friends and Followers,

I came across this video and I thought I’d be remiss not to put it on here. Whwile many are going through persecution, there are MANY Afghani people who are coming to Jesus. Prayer requests start at 18:20-ish.

Thank you for watching!

In Christ,
