Aaron Shust Story : How God Worked a Miraclein His 2-Year-old Son

Aaronshust.com

"When your whole world is suddenly shaking, you need a firm place to stand. You see what it isin your life that's stable and true and strong enough to hold you up, and you reach for that, you run to that.In a way, life becomes simpler because the distractions fall away and you find out what you really believe."

So often—probably most often because it's so effective—God allows the difficult circumstances we walk throughin life to draw us much closer to Him, when we allow ourselves to see that He is there with us as we trek through them.

Such was the case for singer-songwriter Aaron Shust last year when—at the same time his grandmother was dying—his 2-year-old son Nicky suddenly became very ill.

Aaron ShustIn a YouTubevideo, Shust describes how he was on tour last September, sittingin the back of the bus ready to watch the kickoff of the NFL season when his wife, Sara called.

"I could hear itin her voice, she was distraught," recalled Shust, "she said, 'something's wrong with Nicky, I'm taking him to Children's Hospital.'"
After a few weeks of tests, the news the couple received about their little boy was not good.

"They said he had a condition, a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis, and he was off the charts with a case that they said was more severe than any case they'd ever seenin any adult."

The condition is rare and painful, and because of it, Nick was not able to takein any nutrition. Multiple food formulas were tried but quickly rejected by the boy's body. He spent monthsin the hospital hooked up to feeding tubes.

"There were seven possible formulas they knew to give him, but his body rejected the first six—it was definitely getting scary. If he rejected the seventh, as far as we knew, there was no alternative. But, thankfully, his body did accept that seventh formula," explained Shust.

"It was definitely a tough time and it became our new reality, and again, God was our Rock. You don't understand what that means until you live it. It sounds like a clichéd thing that you're supposed to say if you're a Christian. But it was so true that—in the midst of turmoil that you would never think you'd be able to handle—you realize that God gives you the grace and the stamina to be able to stand up underneath things that you never would wish for."

The Shusts began researching what the effects would be of the steroids they were told their son would have to be taking for the rest of his life to manage pain. They brought himin for further tests when the doctors raninto something they could not explain.

Aaron and son NickyNicky's Eosinophilic Esophagitis was completely gone. Every one of his tests had come back normal.

"He did not have one trace of one of these bad cellsin his body whatsoever," said Shustin the video. And, smiling, he added, "They came short of saying it was a miracle; they just simply said… 'All I can say is that your son no longer has Eosinophilic Esophagitis,' and they turned around and walked out."

"We'd been praying like crazy," said Shust, "God answered our prayers by taking anincurable disease and obliterating it! It's pretty amazing."

Summing up the experience, Shust concludes, "Through all of the sickness and heartache and loss, my family has run to God and His promises. We've been forced to our knees, but this trial has made life exponentially more meaningful. And through it all, God has never left us. He brought strength to our weakness, peace to our uncertainty, and healing to our wounds. He's given us the grace to handle what we didn't believe we could. And ultimately, He's let us experience the joy of seeing His miraculous grace at work. To witness your own child being healed of something that doctors told you was permanent, painful andincurable—well, if that doesn't move your heart to worship, I don't suppose there's anything that will."

On My Knees by Twila Paris/Dennis Jernigan



 

When I don't know what I need
I need to get on my knees
When waves of doubt crash over me
I need to get on my knees

On my knees I find refuge
On my knees I find grace
On my knees I can feel You
Like we're meeting face to face
When I don't know what I need
I need to get on my knees

When I don't have strength to stand
I need to reach for Your hand
When life feels like sinking sand
I need to reach for Your hand

In Your hand I find refuge
In Your hand I find grace
In Your hand I can feel You
Like we're meeting face to face
When I don't have strength to stand
I need to reach for Your hand

When life leaves me with no choice
I must listen for Your voice
When lies confuse me with their noise
I must listen for Your voice

In Your voice I find refuge
In Your voice I find grace
In Your voice I can feel You
Like we're meeting face to face
When life leaves me with no choice
I will listen for Your voice

On my knees I find refuge
On my knees I find grace
On my knees I can feel You
Like we're meeting face to face
When I don't know what I need
I need to get on my knees

My Savior My God By Aaron Shust


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

I take Him at His word and deed
Christ died to save me; this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Chorus (2x's)
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

Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Chorus (2x's)

(Instrumental)

Chorus: (2x's)

My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior loves, My Savior lives








I Lift My Hands by Chris Tomlin



 

Be still, there is a healer
His love is deeper than the sea
His mercy, it is unfailing
His arms are fortress for the weak

Let faith arise
Let faith arise

I lift my hands to believe again
You are my refuge, You are my strength
As I pour out my heart
These things, I remember
You are faithful, God, forever

Be still, there is a river
That flows from Calvary's tree
A fountain for the thirsty
Pure grace that washes over me

Let faith arise
Let faith arise

I lift my hands to believe again
You are my refuge, You are my strength
As I pour out my heart
These things, I remember
You are faithful, God, forever

I lift my hands to believe again
You are my refuge, You are my strength
As I pour out my heart
These things, I remember
You are faithful, God, forever

Let faith arise, let faith arise
Open my eyes, open my eyes
Let faith arise, let faith arise
Open my eyes, open my eyes

I lift my hands to believe again
You are my refuge, You are my strength
As I pour out my heart
These things, I remember
You are faithful, God, forever

And I lift my hands to believe again
You are my refuge, You are my strength
As I pour out my heart
These things, I remember
You are faithful, God
You are faithful, God, forever

Let faith arise
Let faith arise

I hear the Savior say,
Thy strength indeed is small!
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all

CHORUS:

Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper's spots
And melt the heart of stone

CHORUS

For nothing good have I
Where-by Thy grace to claim
I'll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calvary's Lamb

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete
Jesus died my soul to save
My lips shall still repeat

Every secret, every shame
Every fear, every pain
Live inside the dark
But that's not who we are
We are children of the day

So wake up sleeper, lift your head
We were meant for more than this
Fight the shadows conquer death
Make the most of the time we have left

You are oxygen, on a late night drive
To clear my head when hope has passed me by
You are gravity, when I’m upside down
You help me find my way back to the ground
And this is why


You’re everything good, everything true
When all the world is fading, You’re everything new
You are my eyes, when I can’t see
When all the world is broken, You will always be
Everything good


You are all I have, and all I need
And all I am is what You’ve made of me
And this is why


You’re everything, good to me
You’re everything, that I need, that I nee

Wave away my yesterday
Cause I'm leaving it behind me.
Hello sunshine, come what may.
I feel something new inside me.
I hear the birds singing
Now my alarm's ringing
Get up, get up, hey!

It's a good morning!
Wake up to a brand new day

It's a good morning

Slow down, breathe in,
Don't move ahead

I've got my arms raised, un-phased
Jump out of bed
Gotta get this party going

Get up, get up, hey!

Good morning,

And I can feel the hope that's rising up in me.
It's a good morning

Now I'm smiling, and I'm kissing all my worries goodbye
Got the feeling, if I spread my wings I might even fly
You are my truth, my way
Give me the strength to say
Get up, get up, get up
Cause it's a good morning, hey

Trust In Jesus-Third Day


One of these days we all will stand in judgment for
Every single word that we have spoken
One of these days we all will stand before the Lord
Give a reason for everything we've done
And what I've done is

Trust in Jesus
My great Deliverer
My strong Defender
The Son of God
I trust in Jesus
Blessed Redeemer
My Lord forever
The Holy One, the Holy One

What are you going to do when your time has come
And your life is done and there's nothing you can stand on
What will you have to say at the judgment throne
I already know the only thing that I can say I

There's nothing I can do on my own to find forgiveness
It's by His grace alone I trust in Jesus
Trust in Jesus

One of these days we all will stand in judgment for
Every single word that we have spoken
One of these days we all will stand before the Lor

'Tis so sweet by Jadon Lavik


’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”

Refrain
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Refrain
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

Refrain
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Before The Morning by Josh Wilson




Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you
If there’s a God who loves you where is He now

Maybe there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending

Someday somehow you’ll see you’ll see

Would you dare would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
So hold on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

My friend you know how this all ends
You know where you’re going
You just don’t know how you’ll get there
So say a prayer

And hold on cause there’s good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time but you’ll see the bigger picture

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory

It’s just the hurt before the healing
Oh the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

I'm Not Who I Was by Brandon Heath


Artist : Brandon Heath
Song : I'm Not Who I Was
Album : Don’t Get Comfortable
Released : 2007



I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who i was

Used to be mad at you
A little on the hurt-side too
But i'm not who I was

Found my way around
To forgiving you, sometime ago
But I never got to tell you

So..

I found us in a photograph
Saw me and I had to laugh
You know, I'm not who I was

Ooo, there you were right above me
And I wonder if you ever loved me
Just for who i was

When the pain came back again
Like a bitter friend
It was all that I could do
To keep myself from blaming you

Ooo..

Thinking that it's a funny thing
Figured out I can sing
Now I'm not who i was

I write about love and such
Maybe because I want it so much
I'm not who i was

I was thinkin' maybe I,
Should let you know
That I am not the same
But I never did forget your name

Hello

Ooo, a-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

But the thing that I find most amazing,
The amazing grace
Is the chance to give it up
Maybe that's what love is all about

I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who i was

Someone Worth Dying For by MikesChair


You might be the wife,
Waiting up at night
You might be the man,
Struggling to provide
Feeling like it's hopeless

Maybe you're the son,
Who chose a broken road
Maybe you're the girl,
Thinking you'll end up alone
Praying God can you hear me?
Oh God are you listening?

(Chorus)
Am I more than flesh and bone?
Am I really something beautiful?
Yeah, I wanna believe, I wanna believe that
I'm not just some wandering soul
That you don't see and you don't know
Yeah I wanna believe, Jesus help me believe that I
Am someone worth dying for

I know you've heard the truth that God has set you free
But you think you're the one that grace could never reach
So you just keep asking, what everybody's asking

Chorus

You're worth it, you can't earn it
Yeah the Cross has proven
That you're sacred and blameless
Your life has purpose

You are more than flesh and bone
Can't you see you're something beautiful
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe
He wants you to see, He wants you to see
That you're not just some wandering soul
That can't be seen and can't be known
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe that you
Are someone worth dying for

You're someone worth dying for
You're someone worth dying for

You bled for all mankind and set the captives free

You lift me up with Your love

Waiting for the sunrise
Waiting for the day
Waiting for a sign that I'm

You know my heart is heavy
And the hurt is deep

You're reminding me

That we all fall down sometimes
When I hit the ground

I know I make mistakes
I know that I have let You down

And when I'm surrounded
And when I lose my way
And when I'm crying out and fallen down

You are here to lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I'm letting go

You lift me up when I can't see
You heart's all that I need
Your love carries me so I'm letting go

In this moment, I surrender
To Your love, to Your love

Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I'm letting go

The signs are nowhere on this road guiding me home
When the night is closing in
It’s falling on my skin
Oh God will You come close

To the Faith it takes, to pray and sing
From the Painted sky, to my plank filled eye

I'm giving my life to the only One who makes the moon reflect the sun.
Every starry night, that was His design.

This is my Father's world
and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings 
the music of the spheres

This is my Father's world
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought

This is my Father's world
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the ruler yet

This is my Father's world
the battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied
And earth and heaven will be one

This is my Father's world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father's world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker's praise.
This is my Father's world: He shines in all that's fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father's world. O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father's world: the battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and heaven be one.

What A Friend by Jadon Lavik

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
May we ever, Lord, be bringing
All to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
There will be no need for prayer—
Rapture, praise, and endless worship
Will be our sweet portion there.

What a friend we have in Jesus,

Have we trials and temptations?

I Refuse by Josh Wilson

Artist : Josh Wilson
Song : I Refuse
Album : See You
Release : FEBRUARY 8th, 2011



Sometimes I
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone's alright
When I know they're not

This world needs God
But it's easier to stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing's wrong

But I refuse
'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of You, oh God

So, if You say move
It's time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do
Show them who You are

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

To stand and watch the weary and lost
Cry out for help
I refuse to turn my back
And try and act like all is well

I refuse to stay unchanged
To wait another day, to die to myself
I refuse to make one more excuse

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I refuse
I refuse

Busted heart by For King & Country



 

Winter has come back again
Feels like the season won't end
My faith is dying tonight
And i won't try to pretend

I've got it all figured out
I don't have any doubts
I've got a busted heart
I need You now
Yeah i need You now

(chorus)
Hold on to me hold on to me
Don't let me lose my way
Hold on to me

I am the wandering son
Your love is never enough
I keep chasing the wind
Instead of chasing your love

I'm screaming out your name
Don't let me fall on my face
I've got a busted heart
I'm in need of a change

I'm desperate for grace.

All Of Me by Matt Hammitt

 


 

Afraid to love, something that could break,
Could I move on, if You were torn away?
I'm so close to what I can't control
I can't give You half my heart, and pray it makes You whole

You're gonna have all of me, You're gonna have all of me,
Cuz you're worth every fallen tear, You're worth facing every fear
You're gonna know all my love, even if it's not enough
Enough to mend our broken hearts, giving You all of me is where I'll start.

I won't let sadness steal You from my arms
I won't let pain keep you from my heart
Trade the fear of all that I could lose,
for every moment I share with You

You're gonna have all of me, you're gonna have all of me,
Cuz You're worth every fallen tear, You're worth facing any fear
You're gonna know all my love, even if it's not enough
Enough to mend our broken hearts, giving You all of me is where I'll start.

Heaven broke into this moment, it's too wonderful to speak
You're worth all of me, You're worth all of me
So let me recklessly love You, even if I bleed
You're worth all of me, You're worth all of me

You're gonna have all of me, you're gonna have all of me,
Cuz You're worth every fallen tear, you're worth facing any fear
You're gonna know all my love, even if it's not enough
Enough to mend our broken hearts, giving You all of me is where I'll start

You're gonna have all of me,
Cuz You're worth every fallen tear, You're worth facing any fear
You're gonna know all my love, even if it's not enough
Enough to mend our broken hearts, giving You all of me is where I'll start
It's where I'll start

Allelujah by The Museum




When hardship comes to prey on hopes
And troubles seem to linger on
When death rolls on taking ones we love
You are the hope that keeps us on

Alleluia, Thine the glory
Alleluia, Amen
Alleluia, Thine the glory
Revive us again

When all this seems the battles lost
And such disease is spreading on
When life grows dark and our lips are parched
You are the hope that we sing of

Alleluia, Thine the glory
Alleluia, Amen
Alleluia, Thine the glory
Revive us again

When death is past and sins are gone
Alas forgiveness here is won
All daughters and sons we will stand as one
We're safe at last in the Father's love
We're safe at last in the Father's love

Alleluia
Alleluia
Alleluia
Alleluia

Alleluia, Thine the glory
Alleluia, Amen
Alleluia, Thine the glory
Revive us again
Again

My Hope Is In You by Aaron Shust

Blessed are those who trust in the LORD 
and 
have made the LORD their hope and confidence.
Jeremiah 17:7

video

I meet with You and my soul sings out
As your word throws doubt far away
I sing to You and my heart cries Holy!
Hallelujah Father, You're near
My hope is in You, Lord all the day long
I won't be shaken by drought or storm
A peace that passes understanding is my song and I sing
My hope is in You, Lord

I wait for You and my soul finds rest
In my selfishness, You show me grace
I worship You and my heart cries Glory
Hallelujah Father You're here!

My hope is in You, Lord all the day long
I won't be shaken by drought or storm
A peace that passes understanding is my song and I sing
My hope is in You, Lord

I will wait on You
You are my refuge
I will wait on You
You are my refuge
I will wait on You
You are my refuge
I will wait on You
You are my refuge

My hope is in You, Lord all the day long
I won't be shaken by drought or storm

My hope is in You, Lord all the day long
I won't be shaken by drought or storm

A peace that passes understanding is my song and I sing
My hope is in You, Lord
My hope is in You, Lord  yeah
My hope is in You, Lord

Story Behind The Song



The Light In Me by Brandon Heath

 

My life before You
I was a flame burning down
I was burning out
But You knew me better
For You there was never a doubt
Not since You gave me life

Something was different
I knew it the instant
You put the light in me

The spark
The shot to the heart
You are the hope that leads me
Out of the dark
You let Your love shine down
So that the world can see
You put the light in me
The light, You put the light in me
The light, You put the light in me
The light, You put the light in me
The light, You put the light in me

You are the Maker
You tell the sun when to rise
I'm just a house on a hill
But You make me brighter
Than all the stars in the sky
Keep me from growing dim

‘Cause in Your perfection
I'm just a reflection
So pull me closer to You
I'll catch like a fire
And I'll hold You higher
‘Cause You put the light in me

I'll raise it high, I'll let it show
From the roof tops down to the streets below
In day and night, You will be known
And all will see
You put the light in me

There Is A Way by Newworldson


Title: THERE IS A WAY - NEWWORLDSON W/ LYRICS
Published: 04 Februari 2010

You say love is just a word, just four letters in a row.
Just a thing that people say, or they never tell you so.
And you use every excuse, to let nobody in.
Now this cloud you bring around, has become your only friend.

And everybody saying that it's going to go away, but it don't go.
And everybody's telling you one day it's going to change,
but you don't know, if it's really going to end.

But there is a way, there is a spark,
there is a hope that you can hold on to.
There is a lifeline come to the rescue,
just like a hand that's waiting for you.

And if you believe in this I promise that you won't be alone.
There is a way, the truth and the life, and the way.

But if love became a man, if the word had flesh and bone.
Would you recognize His face, if He came to bring you home.
You think you're all alone, gotta do it on your own riding solo.
Is there someone you can call, when you stumble and fall?
Cause you don't know, if you'll be getting up again.

But There is a way, there is a spark,
there is a hope that you can hold on to.
There is a lifeline come to the rescue,
just like a hand that's waiting for you.
And if you believe in this I promise that you won't be alone.
There is a way, the truth and the life, and the way.

Don't you think your life's worth saving?
Don't you know that love's amazing?
Don't you want to lay your troubles down?
Lay them down.

If I thought love was just a word,
I might feel the same way too.
But there's so much more than that,
and it's waiting here for you.

There is a way, there is a spark,
there is a hope that you can hold on to.
There is a lifeline come to the rescue,
just like a hand that's waiting for you.
And if you believe in this I promise that you won't be alone.
There is a way,
there is a way,
there is a way.

(Background) Truth and the life and the way.
Come on, there is a way.
(Background) Truth and the life and the way.
(Background) Truth and the life and the way.
There is a way,
there is a way.
(Background) Truth and the life and the way.
There is a way.
(Background) Truth and the life and the way.
Ooooh, there is a way back home.
(Background) Truth and the life and the way.
