With God’s “Amazing Grace” “I Will Survive” 2013 Business Song Theme
By Michelle Carr-Crowe
For this year of 2013 there are two theme songs: With “Amazing Grace” “I Will Survive”.
Most of you may know the first or last verses of the hymn “Amazing Grace”. However, it’s those second and third verses that seem to resonate with me for 2013-for the strange accepted, then rejected San Jose short sale that ultimately sold and closed with enough cash to pay everything off-the day before the auction! Thank you Jesus, and take that, Satan!
Written by John Newton, here are those second and third stanzas:
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
I’m planning on standing in 2014 on the sixth verse, which was anonymously added.
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.
The truth is sometimes it’s only praise that pushes through and releases Satan’s hold. I became “can’t get out of bed sick” during the stressful last weeks of that transaction, with some lingering physical problems. The approval for the first loan was rescinded late in the game because Bank of America got greedy and wanted to foreclose to gain all of the equity if they shut out the second loan.
However, as Gloria Gaynor sings, “I Will Survive”. For me that is with God's "Amazing Grace" "I Will Survive". Fortunately I am with a wonderful man, so the second song is strictly about keeping Satan and his lies out of my life and business!
These lines are for Satan when discouragement, fear and doubt show up uninvited, as they did during this transaction:
“Go on now go
Walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘cause you’re not welcome anymore…
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
With God’s “Amazing Grace” (my addition)
I will survive!”
I hope this story of how with God’s “Amazing Grace” “I Will Survive” 2013 encourages you to a blessed and victorious 2014!
