Musical Monday: All I Did Was Stay Still

The song Defender written by Rita Springer, Steffany Gretzinger and John-Paul Gentile is the song I needed to hear this morning. I needed the reminder that praise and worship are my weapons. They are how I fight.

Click here to hear it sung by Katie Torwalt: DEFENDER Lyrics below.

You go before I know
That You’ve even gone to win my war
You come back with the head of my enemy
You come back and You call it my victory

You go before I know
That You’ve even gone to win my war
Your love becomes my greatest defense
It leads me from the dry wilderness

And all I did was praise
All I did was worship
All I did was bow down
All I did was stay still

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way

You know before I do
Where my heart can seek to find Your truth
Your mercy is the shade I’m living in
You restore my faith and hope again

And all I did was praise
All I did was worship
All I did was bow down
All I did was stay still

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way
Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way

And When I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to Your love
You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together
You are the defender of my heart

And when I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to Your love
You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together
You are the defender of my heart
And when I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to Your love
You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together
You are the defender of my heart

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way
Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way

All I did was praise
All I did was worship
All I did was bow down
All I could do is stay still

Praise becomes my breakthrough
My song becomes my triumph
Worship is my warfare
My victory is in youHallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way
Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, Great Defender
So much better this way

All I did was praise
All I did was worship
All I did was bow down
All I did was stay still

All I did was stay still

Point to ponder while you wander…when I need to make decisions and I can’t. When I’m feeling over emotional and want to just hide. When my world becomes overwhelming. The only thing that helps me level off is worship. It restores my balance and clears my head. It reminds me who I am, and whose I am. It amplifies the reminder I am not in this alone.

After worship I’m able to go for a walk, talk to a friend, and process rationally. And pray.
