You have not forgotten

This past Sunday we sang a song that has now become an absolute favorite. I’m not sure I have ever sang such a theologically sound song and my heart ached as we sang. Had we been in the waiting, walking through the unknown, I am certain tears would have flowed unceasingly on Sunday.

Simple truths about who God is and how RICHLY He cares for us…

Even in the valley He is faithful, even what the enemy means for evil He turns for our good, He’s working in the waiting, He’s teaching us to trust, He has not forgotten us.

Sovereign Over Us by Aaron Keyes

There is strength within the sorrow,
There is beauty in our tears
You meet us in our mourning,
With a love that casts out fear
You are working in our waiting,
Sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding,
You're teaching us to trust

Your plans are still to prosper,
You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
Faithful forever,
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us
You are wisdom unimagined,
Who could understand your ways

Reigning high above the heavens,
Reaching down in endless grace
You’re the Lifter of the lowly,
Compassionate and kind
You surround and You uphold me,
Your promises are my delight

Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good,
You turn it for our good and for your glory

Even in the valley You are faithful
You're working for our good,
You’re working for our good and for your glory
