Five Minute Friday: Song

I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday. This week feels like I'm chasing the ice cream truck after searching frantically for my money. Wait for me guys! I'm coming! Today's word prompt is Song.


I have been hearing this song by Building 429 on the radio recently. It never fails to pump me up! I can't help but think of the graduates in my class. I've know them for years. This needs to be a statement of our lives. WE WON'T BE SHAKEN. A couple nights ago at youth group a rhetorical question was brought up, "Look around you. Who will be here in 10 years?" It sparked my interest. 

"Researchers found that almost three out of five young Christians (59%) leave church life either permanently or for an extended period of time after age 15." -USA Today

While this fact saddens me, I see it all too often. Not just with teens, but also with adults that I once looked up to. Our youth leader encouraged us to make sure that we aren't just focusing everyone around us. "Will you still be here?"

To the class of 2013, don't be part of the statistic above. Please. Please. Please! Remain burdened to live a life in obedience to Christ. Keep your heart open to what He has for you.

I once had a person tell me that I'd walk away from Jesus and religion someday. Challenge accepted. I don't see this happening any time soon! :)

This world has nothing for me
This life is not my own
I know You go before me and I am not alone
This mountain rises higher
The way seems so unclear
But I know that You go with me so I will never fear
I will trust in You

Whatever will come our way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken

Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken


Five Minute Friday


  1. {Whoops}. Keep building your life on the rock! The wind and the waves will come ... but if He is your foundation, you are right ... you will not be shaken. Love this song too ... and this band, they are local to me:) The quilt was my very first attempt at quilting ... you can't see it, but there are photographs of my daughter and me and my husband on it. I made it when I had to leave her for a year for the Army. It's a treasure to me :) His normal blanket has fuzzy monkeys on it.

  2. I LOVE that song. It saddens me that so many of our kids are leaving church when they are out on their own. I am already telling my oldest...ya gotta know it in your heart...not just your head....or it won't carry you. I too, strayed for a a few years. Not a fact I'm proud foundation wasn't firm and so when I needed it to hold couldn't. Great write! hugs!
