Even If

On the way home from praise team practice last night I heard the latest song from a band called Kutless.  The lyrics spoke to me in such a powerful way.  They really touched my heart because of the things I've endured lately.  You know how it seems like God is speaking directly to you through a song or scripture or a movie or another person?  Well, that's never a coincidence... HE IS SPEAKING TO YOU!

Here is the song and lyrics...

'Even If'
Sometimes all we have to hold on to
Is what we know is true of who You are
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane
That could never change who You are
And we trust in who You are

Even if the healing doesn't come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn't come

Lord we know Your ways are not our ways
So we set our faith in who You are
Even though You reign high above us
You tenderly love us
We know Your heart
And we rest in who You are

You're still the Great and Mighty One
We trust You always
You're working all things for our good
We'll sing your praise

Oh, how I needed those words as reassurance it's going to be okay!  If my dreams change or don't turn out the way I planned, if things don't happen in my timing, and if I face more adversity than feels comfortable for me, I know God is mighty and He is in control.  I can find happiness, security, and strength to carry on with a smile on my face! 

I can be an overcomer!
