Songs from a Broken Elevator – My Savior, My God by Aaron Shust

BROKEN ELEVATOR SONGS:
Somewhere between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, my first night after the earthquake, I was trying to calm my spirit and align my heart with God’s heart. I knew worship would help, but I was having trouble getting my mind there, so I indulged in an hour of iPhone battery power and listened to worship songs, there in my broken elevator. Each of these songs spoke to me in profound ways (I’ll be adding them over time).

My Savior, My God was another encouraging song for me that night:

“I am not skilled to understand what God has willed, what God has planned. I only know at His right hand stands One who is my Savior.”

Then the chorus is one of my favorite sing-at-the-top-of-your-lungs-in-the-car choruses
“My savior loves, my savior lives, my savior’s always there for me…
My God He was, my God He is, my God is always gonna be…”

Can you imagine how encouraging those words were to me in my situation?

I literally had to force myself to hold back my voice, because I was afraid i’d spook the others trapped with me (just picture me absolutely rocking out at the top of my lungs at the bottom of six stories of rubble–they’d think I lost it!).

Do you have any sing-at-the-top-of-your-lungs-in-the-car songs?
