The song blared from my car radio. The song was “I Can Only Imagine”, by  Mercy Me. The tears came into my eyes, I tried hard not to blink, for fear that once started, they would be difficult to stop.


“Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall? Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine…….”


This song came out the year before my husband died. It became really popular the year he died. The  song was on the radio, the band members were interviewed and the words were memorized.


The truth is, at that time in my life, I could relate to that song in ways that most could not. I pictured my late husband kneeling before Jesus, utterly speechless in His presence.


I would not see my husband’s face again or hear the sound of his deep voice….not on this side of heaven.


But, there was comfort in the lyrics to this song, because I knew where my husband was. At that very moment and for all the moments to come.


He didn’t have to imagine anymore. Not then. Not now.


He knows.

He’s Always Been Faithful

Cover of "Conversations"

Cover of Conversations

A friend, and former co-worker gave me a Sara Groves, Conversations, CD several years ago. At the time I had never heard of Sara Groves, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Little did I know that her music would have such a profound and lasting effect on me.

At the time I was going through a difficult season of life, and nearly wore out the CD listening to her songs, words that pierced my heart…


Being faithful.

Knowing that I can, and should, rest in the knowledge that God is not in the business of failure…or disappointment. His ways are always right and good…even if I can’t always see it at the time.

For the mountains may depart and the hills disappear, but My kindness shall not leave you. My promise of peace for you will never be broken, says the Lord Who has mercy upon you.   Isaiah 54:10

Faith is believing even when I can’t see.

Trusting in the Unseen.

Faith is sometimes doubting, but still knowing.

Faith is resting…in the arms that carry me.
He’s Always Been Faithful Sara Groves

Lyrics www.allthelyrics.com/lyrics/sara_groves/

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me…

Morning by morning I wake up to find
The power and comfort of God’s hand in mine
Season by season I watch Him, amazed
In awe of the mystery of His perfect ways
All I’m in need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me

I can’t remember a trial or a pain
He did not recycle to bring me gain
I can’t remember one single regret
In serving God only, and trusting His hand
All I’m in need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me

This is my anthem, this is my song
The theme of the stories I’ve heard for so long
God has been faithful, He will be again
His loving compassion, it knows no end
All I’m in need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful, He’s always been faithful
He’s always been faithful to me

Hear her sing….
