A couple of years ago, all I had was the pattern I'm playing on the guitar. No words, I couldn't get it out of my head for a year. the verse I'm singing is the second verse to the song, but I actually wrote it first. I was just having a hard time with the timing of my sanctification, justification, purification process. 'Why am I not there yet? Why am I still dealing with THIS particular sin? My childhood? STILL?? Why am I not over this guy? Why Alzheimer's? Why sickness? Why do I feel insignificant?' Etc! Well out of that, last August, I wrote this verse. I didn't want to start a hopeful song in the valley, so I ended up writing the first verse to acknowledge His goodness without forsaking the fact that easy Christianity does not exist. It is a fight to keep our eyes on God and let Him be Lord of our lives when we don't feel like it, and it's tough to maintain joy and composure sometimes! But His word says He's good, and His word is above his name....So if we can count on His name, why doubt His word?? we can daily present our bodies as living sacrifices as our reasonable service to an understanding, unchanging, incredible and worthy God. He's Still Good. I pray you all have been blessed by the song that was such a blessing to write. I appreciate all the support you all have shown with purchasing, streaming, commenting and sharing! So much love for you all. #stillgood#jelindahill#acoustic#guitar#lunaguitar#orangeamps#amp#alpharetta
in the midst of trials and tribulations, it is so easy for us to question God. when you're the one enduring the pain, "why is this happening to me?" or while watching the ones you love suffer... "why is this happening?" & "why can't I trade places with them." i have seen a new vision of faith as God has surrounded me with a community that continues to support me with peace in the midst of questions unanswered and stability in the chaos.
"and this is my prayer in the fire
in weakness or trial or pain
there is a faith proved or more worth that gold
so refine me, Lord through the flames.
all of my life
in every season
you are still God
i have a reason to sing
i have a reason to worship"
