All you hear about in the news now a days is chaos and sadness. It is a great relief to slow down and find comfort in the beauty that God is able to bring into our lives.
As for this little girl, she is blessed with a voice big enough to move mountains. And the courage to spread God’s word and love through her music and her faith.
Ansley Burns is 12 years old. In this video she lovingly clutches her heart as she sings the words to “How Great Thou Art” with the voice of an angel. Standing in front of the altar, you can feel God’s power pulsing through the empty church.
There is a reason so many have tuned in to hear Ansley sing this song…
This song has such an inspirational meaning to it. According to the All About God website, the the lyrics of “How Great Thou Art” came to the pastor Carl Gustaf Boberg while he was walking down the road and a thunderstorm began to stir. He felt the Lord’s presence among him, keeping him safe. The site explained:
“Mr. Boberg was enjoying a nice walk when a thunderstorm suddenly appeared out of no where. A severe wind began to blow. After the storm was over, Mr. Boberg looked out over the clear bay. He then heard a church bell in the distance. And the words to ‘How Great Thou Art’ begin to form in his heart —
O Lord, my God, When I in awesome wonder, consider all the worlds Thy hands hath made… There was such calmness after the fierce storm he could only utter those words of peace.”
It’s just like God to come to us during the storm. He lifts us up and brings us strength through his Word, and through message and songs like “How Great Thou Art”.
This powerful song has given inspiration to people young and old. People like Ansley who aren’t ashamed of their faith. Who stand boldly, and bravely to spread the Lord’s message in an unwavering and powerful way.
Listen to the words of this little angel, and feel powerful message of God.
