“I’ve seen you move, you moved the mountains.
And I believe, I’ll see you do it again.”
I went on for days with these lyrics by Elevation Worship lingering in my head, from the moment I woke up, to the minute I fell asleep. I guess you could say it was just a bad case of LSS (last song syndrome), but I realized it became a silent prayer. A chant. A claim for victory.
If you’re reading this on your phone, tablet, or laptop from the comfort of your home, you’re already doing better than most during this pandemic.
While we sit here and complain about missing the outdoors, people are losing jobs. While we reminisce on all the comfort food we miss from the mall, others are still waiting for donations from their local government. While we mutter about wanting to go out and see our friends, many are losing loved ones.
The result of this virus wreaking havoc in the world may be visible, but there are still silent and invisible enemies taking ground—panic, hopelessness, desperation, fear.
As we face these enemies, it’s my prayer that this video inspires hope and encouragement amidst this crisis. May the song remind you that He who holds the stars and planets in their place, holds our lives as well.
Special thanks to Jean for helping me make this project a reality and for encouraging me to push through with it even when I struggled with second thoughts. Special thanks to the music master, Emmanuel for taking worship to another level. Thank you to Malkiel for being patient with all my questions and helping me clean up the tracks. I am so blessed to have made this quarantine collab with such anointed artists
All glory to THE MOST HIGH.
Original Artists: Elevation Worship; Song Cover by Tobiyah Carandang, Emmanuel Lantion, and Jean Almeda
