20 In Weekend Whispers

Good, Good Father {Chris Tomlin Video Release} // Weekend Whispers

God has a way of ingraining into my head the very promise that I need the most, when I most need to hear it. Our family has been in a hard, hard season. (You can read more about our current plight at the end of this post.) I’ve been wrestling with God, wrestling with my faith, wrestling to stay strong with so much uncertainty. I’ve been mad, and sad, and worried. But God, He knows what I need to be reminded of and when.

This morning I woke up humming  Chris Tomlin’s Good, Good Father. Honestly, I haven’t woken up humming a song for a while. So I was taking note.

“Yes, Father, You ARE good!”.

Then I got in the car to go to work, and Good, Good Father was playing on K-LOVE.

“Father, You have my attention. You are good!”

Finally, I get into my car to go to lunch and guess what song was playing on K-LOVE, again?

“I surrender, Father. You are good. No matter what.”

Every since Chris Tomlin released his song, Good, Good, Father, it’s been an anthem for my current season of struggle. It is a much needed reminder on hard days that, no matter how bleak and uncertain things may appear, God is still good. And He loves me.

    You know how I love this song… and you… and the fact that God is so good to catch our attention and to remind us that He is good and that He’s got this! As I was reading this post, I also thought of this song, by Lauren Daigle… Trust in You! So good! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_aVFVveJNs

    Barbie, this is a beautiful song. More beautiful still is the way God used it to make you more aware of His wonderful Father-love for you and your family. He is good; He is God and He loves us all so very much! Wonderful, reassuring truth to take with us as we approach a new week. May you continue to sense God’s loving presence, be held and comforted by His grace as you come to a stronger place. Praying for you. Blessings in abundance. Xx

    Dear Barbie, God is so good in how He reveals Himself to us and reassures us of His presence. I’m so grateful that He reassured numerous times in one day that He is a good and loving Father who sees what you are going through and is right there beside you, comforting you and leading you through to joy! Praise His name. Prayers for you and your family.
    Blessings, Janis

    I’m so sorry that you are going through such a hard season in life, Barbie. I will lift you and your family up and hope that our good, good Father makes it known to you in all sorts of ways that He loves you and is blessing you abundantly–regardless of what the circumstances may look like. I know He is growing your faith by leaps and bounds and we are blessed to hear your story of His closeness at every turn. I love this song and often find myself just ushered into worship when I hear it play on my Pandora station. Thanks for giving us the news about the giveaway and providing a lovely moment of worship as well, my friend.
