I think it’s hard to choose just one song to be a theme song. All of us are multi-dimensional beings, and it seems like we’d all need multiple songs to really encompass our multiple themes!
Andrew Peterson’s Always Good is the top one that comes to mind. I tried to pick out a lyric or two to quote here and I could not narrow it down. The whole thing really speaks to me.
Ok, well, maybe this part:
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, always good
Sara Groves’ I’ve Been Here Before rings true for me. So often I forget that I have been in difficult situation X or Y or Z before, and God has helped me through it.
I have survived before, so there is good reason to think that I will again.
Sara Groves’ Second-Guess Girl would also be on my list. I’ve written before about how so often, I really want to do the right thing, but I feel unsure of exactly what the right thing is!
What is the right way to love this person? Do they need tough love or empathy? Do they need a loving kick in the pants, or someone to lovingly sit beside them?
Life would be so much easier if I could be sure about these things.
