"Mighty to Save" by Hillsong

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.14.2009

I first heard this song when one of the teen boys in my youth group was doing the worship set instead of me one Saturday night.

I had never heard this song before, although Captain Caffeine had (this is because one of the most common reasons for the youth to do the worship set for youth group meeting instead of me is because I’m out of town, and so the Captain had heard this on one Saturday I wasn’t there).

Anyway, this was such a great song that when I heard it again on a Song Discovery CD (sung by Laura Story), I immediately picked it to sing for Sunday service when I did worship music.

While I was writing Deadly Intent, this was the song that just seemed to be perfect for the heroine. Plus the phrase “mighty to save” isn’t a bad one when your life is in danger, right?

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do. This is such a great reminder for me of God’s mighty power over our lives no matter what’s happening to us.

Oh, and guess what the verse is at the beginning of the novel?

The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save.
Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)


This is the original Laura Story recording with a slideshow that I found on YouTube:



This is the live version that my husband, Captain Caffeine, has on his iPod, also gotten from YouTube:



"Mighty to Save"
by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan
(c) 2006 Hillsong Publishing

Everyone needs compassion
A love that’s never failing.
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save,
He is mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as you find me
All my fears and failures.
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender,
Yes, I surrender

Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save,
He is mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave

Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King, Jesus
Shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King

Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save,
He is mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave

You’re my Savior, You can move the mountains
God, You are mighty to save,
You are mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
You rose and conquered the grave,
Yes, You conquered the grave
You were mighty to save.

  2. I absolutely love this song. We actually just sang it on Sunday at church and last summer, it was a song we sang every night and did motions to with the kids during VBS. It just makes me happy everytime I hear it!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
