I don’t think I could pick all-time favorites, but here are three that currently come to mind.
Always Good-Andrew Peterson
The truths in this song are so helpful to me when I feel discouraged.
“As we try to believe what is not meant to be understood
Will You help us to trust Your intentions for us are still good
‘Cause You laid down Your life
And You suffered like I never could and you’re always good”
I Remember-Lauren Daigle
I like this one for the same reasons as the first.
“I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember, I remember
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there “
This one is beautiful to listen to, and I like how she describes life as patches of joy and stretches of sorrow. In my experience, life is always a combo of the two, which is a mercy, I think.
Imagine if life had just stretches of sorrow without any patches of joy!
