“You Are God Alone”

Several of my friends have asked me about how I am feeling about the military moving us to North Dakota. They are just checking in to see how I am doing with the idea because my original facebook post (after I got the news) looked something like this: “I AM NOT HAPPY!!!” I should probably mention that my reaction has nothing to do with the people of ND; who I assume are great 🙂 My reaction was due to the fact that we will be nowhere near any family on either side and also because I HATE cold weather.

I will be leaving the subtropical beautiful island of Okinawa for snow and ice and cold…Burrrrrr!

Over the past two weeks I have felt a wave of bad emotions including anger, frustration, discontent, annoyance, etc. But I have also felt a wave of good emotions including: trust, hope, comfort, etc. I am sure that all of these good emotions have come from the Holy Spirit. I have completely decided to put my trust in God about this move. I cannot see past the horizon to know what is in store for my family but I can take comfort in knowing that God is ultimately in control. If he places us in ND then I believe that there is a reason. Maybe it is so we can be a blessing to someone. Maybe it is so we can receive a blessing. I don’t know. But I do know that God does and he will take care of  me and my family. Even so; I will truly miss Okinawa and my friends that will forever be apart of my family.

And for more confirmation; our worship leader choose a beautiful song for us to sing at church this coming Sunday. As I sang it tonight during our worship team practice; I really paid attention to the words. It confirmed in my heart that I needed to fully trust in my God’s plan for my life. Listen to it if you have time.  P.S: Clark, you can trust that God will replace those of us who are leaving the worship team too. You might even get replacements that aren’t as OCD as I am and who actually sing loud enough for you 🙂


You Are God Alone

By: Phillips, Craig, & Dean

You are not a god
Created by human hands
You are not a god
Dependent on any mortal man
You are not a god
In need of anything we can give
By Your plan; that’s just the way it is

You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
Your are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You are on Your throne
You are God alone

You’re the only God
Whose power none can contend
You’re the only God
Whose name and praise will never end
You’re the only God
Who’s worthy of everything we can give
You are God; And that’s just the way it is

Repeat Chorus

That’s what You are

Repeat Chorus

  1. You know I wasn’t thrilled about SD. But have believed from the beginning that there were REASONS for us to be here. We’ve only been in town for 3 weeks and I already know one big specific that we were brought here for… and it actually related to my mom getting to come out to visit us and connect with an old friend who needed her — talk about being PART of the story! I know ND will be the same for you. But you’ll have to keep eyes wide open! Miss you!

  2. I know how it feels and you feel about leaving a place where you just got. I’ve been a military kid for my whole life and now bout to be an army wife, which means I’m supposed to have to move here and there again. it feels still somehow bad but on a second thought. It might be a great chance that many pepole wouldn’t have, to get to know many people and places.

    randomly saw your blog. enjoyed your stories with the sympathy.

    • Because we came to Okinawa; I now have very close friends who have become apart of my family in several states and countries. Okinawa was the first base away from home for me. When I got married my husband was stationed in my home state so I had a lot of my family and high school friends around me. When you are far from home you connect and learn how to depend on people on a whole different level. God bless as you join the military spouse club 🙂

  3. Hehe,thanks. I guess my things are simliar and also different from yours at the same time. Since I’m from S.Korea,I’ll be missing my home, family and all friends while staying there, the states. Can I visit this blog sometimes ?

    • Of course 🙂

      My husband was just in SK for a TDY in March. I’ve never been there. I did have a pen-pal from Seoul when I was in Middle school 🙂

      Do you know where you will be stationed?

  4. Haha, that’s cute that you had a penpal from Korea in middle school.
    oh I know where my fiancee is and and I will be. Ft.Hood in Texas…. sounds great doesnt it?Your girls are so lovely:) I can’t wait to be a mother, either.
