Encouraging Songs - Week 6 - (Even If)

This is a new song called Even If by Kutless. It talks about praising God even in the bad times. Even when the (earthly) healing doesn't come. Even when we don't see God's plan. Even when His plan doesn't match our plan. Even when we just don't understand or see how this can be God's plan. 

We pray for healing for so many people. We pray for physical healing. We pray for spiritual healing. We pray for emotional healing. We pray for marriages to be healed. We pray for relationships to be healed. And we just pray for every situation to be healed. 

But as I'm learning more and more, sometimes earthly healing isn't God's plan. Sometimes He has a plan much bigger than healing on this earth. But when someone or a situation isn't healed, it is still so hard even if we believe that it's God's will and that He has something better planned. We are human and we still question God's plan sometimes when the healing doesn't come. My best friend Rebecca didn't receive earthly healing. She received eternal healing on March 10th, 2012 when she went to be with Jesus, and that's the best kind. But that doesn't mean it doesn't still hurt. But even if the healing doesn't come, we will praise God. I have a lot of friends with Lyme (and other diseases) who are praying for healing, including myself. I believe 110% that God has the ability to heal us on this earth, and that He will heal us forever in Heaven one day. But, earthly healing is sometimes not in the plan. We have to learn to praise God even if that is the case, as it is so many times. 

"Sometimes all we have to hold on to 
Is what we know is true 
Of who You are 
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane 
That can never change who You are 
And we trust in who You are 

(Chorus)
Even if the healing doesn't come 
And life falls apart 
And dreams are still undone 
You are God You are good 
Forever faithful One 
Even if the healing 
Even if the healing doesn't come 

Lord we know Your ways are not our ways 
So we set our faith in who You are 
And even though You reign high above us 
You tenderly love us 
We know Your heart 
We rest in who You are 

Chorus

You're still the Great and Mighty One 
We trust You always 
You're working all things for our good 
We'll sing your praise 

Chorus

You are God and we will bless You 
As the Good and Faithful One 
You are God and we will bless You 
Even if the healing doesn't come 
Even if the healing doesn't come"
