even if

A few weeks ago a friend had a link on their Facebook to a song that I clicked on. It quickly became a favourite and has been stuck in my head since.

"Even If" by Kutless

Sometimes life is not what we planned for or hoped for. Things happen that we prayed wouldn't happen. Or things don't happen that we prayed would happen. Those are times when our faith can be tested. Do we believe and follow God anyway? Or do we turn away?

The words to the chorus of this song are definitely incredible to think about and declare in our own lives.
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
Those words cover most of what could happen that would test our faith - healing that we and others have prayed for doesn't come, life in general just seems to be falling apart, or our dreams are not coming true the way we thought they would. In the midst of all that, can we declare that God is good and faithful, based on what we know to be true from His Word?
