Seeing the spiritual

But God.

Tonight, as I was looking through YouTube videos for a couple of things I wanted to share with my Lent readers, I came across this video. I just HAVE to tell you that Larnelle Harris has been one of my favorite “Christian” singers for many, many years…yet, I had missed this song…this video…this very important message that I personally needed to hear tonight. So I had myself a little ugly-cry worship service as I watched this amazing man of God, and crazy-great singer, sing words that ministered to me.

And I felt in my heart, apart from the Lent readings, that maybe you, too, needed to hear this word at this point of your life.

But God
by Larnelle Harris

Abraham and Sarah never thought they’d have a Son
Then descendants came as countless as the stars
Moses and God’s people had nowhere left to run
Then the waters of the Red Sea stood apart
So many times the light of hope
Was setting like the sun
And it seemed to the faithful
It was over, it was done

But God sees a way
When miracles are well beyond our view
His love saves the day
When fear would tell us there is just no use
You can look the whole world over
For the meaning of it all
For the purpose that mankind has always sought
In the end You’ll discover
There is no other answer
But God

I know Your heart is breaking
The pain just comes in waves
Everywhere You look it seems like there’s no peace
You try not to give up
But the tears will not relent
Any minute now You might accept defeat
And You stand there with impossible
The next word on Your lips
Your vision has been blinded
And nothing’s making sense

But God sees a way
When miracles are well beyond our view
His love saves the day
When fear would tell us there is just no use
You can look the whole world over
For the meaning of it all
For the purpose that mankind has always sought
In the end You’ll discover
There is no other answer
But God
