Days of Elijah

Today has been a ... well, challenging day. I won't go into details (except to say it's associated with moving), but it's been challenging. I'll leave it at that.

So, needing a little pick-me-up, I remembered one of my favorite church songs and dug it up on YouTube:

Yeah, a pick-me-up. It helped.


  1. I love this song. My favorite version is when it is sung by the U.S. Marines. Look for it on Youtube. It gives me shivers!

  2. Thank you! One of my favorites. You got my heart rejoicing this morning.

  3. I hope this move is your last in this lifetime. I may never move again unless it is to a home or assisted living. Although after my broken hip and 2 months in a rehab home I may never go back to that stage of helplessness.

  4. I don't know how you do it, in the middle of moving and you can still maintain your blob and then some, you must be super human. I can see how this would be uplifting.

    1. Blog not blob, hope you got it.

  5. What can one say, but absolutely AWESOME!!!! Thanks!!

  6. Patrice, God will get you through this I promise. Just keep in mind "this too will pass". We are all rooting and praying for you, and loving you also. I always hated moving too...hang in there, you can do this.

  7. Thank you Patrice, my husband and I needed it too.

  8. Hello Patrice,

    Yeah, these times are trying, and that's a pretty good song. However, try this one for some fun and uplifting:

    if you can find a decent version of Dr. Gene Scott's "If God be for us, who can stand against us?" it will most definitely lift your spirits.

    God said He would establish His kingdom in the "days of those kings" (the beast empires) and NOTHING would destroy it. Well, He did establish His Kingdom; it's here now, and it is under attack by God's and our enemies. God keeps His Word.


  9. I love this song - so glad you shared it. I hope your challenges will be sorted soon and you can rest easier for a while. Jenny

  10. Here are the US Marines at Camp Pendleton singing "Days of Elijah". How can anyone not be moved?

  11. Back many years ago I listened to Paul Wilbur sing this.
    More so now this last2.5 years. When ever I get frustrated, anxious, and just want it all to stop and I say, "really, is all of this happening?-?now?
    Are we like Esther? made for such a time as this?
    Esther 4:13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”

    I love the books of Peter, James, 1&2 John and Jude. When I need a "Gibbs head slap" I get encouragement reading these books.
    1 Peter chapter 4 is my encouragement for today.
