The Lord our God is ever faithful
Never changing through the ages
From this darkness
You will lead us
And forever we will say
You're the Lord our God
I know several people who are struggling right now. Some of the struggles are small, while others are giant mountains that seem impossible to climb. This song really spoke to me, reminding me that no matter what the circumstance, no matter where our heart may be, God is faithful and that will never change. He will be there, whether we want Him to or whether we think He is, to bring us through every situation.
I remember when the doctors told us Allison was going to die. It was a very dark and long period in my life, and to be honest, for a long time I wasn't sure I believed in God anymore. We were good people. We were kick-butt parents. We were faithful to God. But in the end, none of that mattered. I can now look back and see ways God was faithful during that heartbreaking time, even though I couldn't and didn't want to see it.
I don't know, and I will never understand, why good people suffer. Bad things do happen to good people. I don't understand God's purpose or plans in many situations, but I do know that He is faithful in every situation. So to those who are struggling right now, hang in there. No matter where your heart may be, no matter the situation, no matter the circumstance, He is there.
