When God Speaks

Have you ever noticed that there are times that God shows up at what seems to be a strange time unannounced? Now I understand as a child of God that He’s always there, but sometimes it seems as though He just busts down the door of our hearts and sets up shop for a bit.

This is exactly what happened to me a few days ago. I was driving into town for a meeting just like I do a couple times a week, when God kicked down the door to my heart and seemed to say, “Listen, we need to talk!”

I was listening to the radio, which is always on my favorite local Christian Radio Station J103, when a song came on the radio. It’s a song that I’d heard several times lately, but this time it was different. It was almost as if God were saying these words to me Himself. When the song ended, I couldn’t get a hold of my favorite DJ Ted Gocke fast enough to find out what that song was he just played.

The song is “Even If” by Mercy Me. It’s fairly new.  After researching I learned that it was written by Mercy Me’s very own Bart Millard, who has a child that struggles with a chronic illness. Not only can you hear Bart’s struggle through this song, but you can also easily relate it to your very own struggles in life.

We all have different struggles, some different than others; but we all serve the same God who IS able to take those struggles away with His Mighty Hand.  BUT, even if He doesn’t, our hope must remain in him.

So the next time you are driving down the road and a song comes on the radio and you find yourself emotional, remember, that could very well be the voice of God speaking through whomever your listening to. Listen to what’s being said! God speaks to us in many ways; we just have to be listening.

Have a great week everyone!

“Even If” by Mercy Me (Lyrics)

They say sometimes you win some

Sometimes you lose some

And right now, right now I’m losing bad

I’ve stood on this stage night after night

Reminding the broken it’ll be alright

But right now, oh right now I just can’t

 

It’s easy to sing

When there’s nothing to bring me down

But what will I say

When I’m held to the flame

Like I am right now

 

I know You’re able and I know You can

Save through the fire with Your mighty hand

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

 

They say it only takes a little faith

To move a mountain

Well, good thing

A little faith is all I have right now

But God, when You choose

To leave mountains unmovable

Give me the strength to be able to sing

It is well with my soul

 

I know You’re able and I know You can

Save through the fire with Your mighty hand

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt

Would all go away if You’d just say the word

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

 

You’ve been faithful, You’ve been good

All of my days

Jesus, I will cling to You

Come what may

‘Cause I know You’re able

I know You can

 

I know You’re able and I know You can

Save through the fire with Your mighty hand

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt

Would all go away if You’d just say the word

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

 

It is well with my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul
