Ebenezer Stone

One of my favorite worship songs came out a few months before I got diagnosed.  I had sang the chorus, but after February 10th the words took on a whole new meaning and this song became sorta an Ebenezer Stone** for me for this time of my life.  We sang it at church a couple weeks ago and I felt like I should share it with all of you.  Take some time to listen to it and Enjoy!

**”The prophet Samuel set up a stone after the LORD routed the Philistines and Israel won a great victory. This was not without repentance and seeking the LORD on Israel’s part. They had to put away their false gods and pray. The stone, named Ebenezer, commemorated that victory, for “Thus far the LORD has helped us” (1 Samuel 7:12). Whenever the Israelites would pass by the stone, they would remember what they were capable of, and how the LORD acted on their behalf.

So when people today refer to setting up an Ebenezer, they are using something physical to remind them of spiritual truth, especially God’s faithfulness and goodness.”
