Even If

One of the hardest things to deal with through the every day adventure that is our life is wondering why God doesn’t answer our prayer. Why is our prayer for healing ignored? Are we not worthy? Do our prayers fall on deaf ears?

It can be, at times, tough to remind myself that God is always listening to us.

A song that reminds me not to get discouraged is Even If by Mercyme.

The chorus says:

I know You’re able and I know You can

Save through the fire with Your mighty hand

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt

Would all go away if You’d just say the word

But even if You don’t

My hope is You alone

It’s a reminder that even though we have yet to hear the answer we want, God is still there. He hasn’t abandoned us. He just has bigger plans than we realize that require Him to tell us “No. Not right now.”

The wildest part of this journey is that it doesn’t feel like we’re in the wrong spot. It feels as though this is where we are meant to be at this time in our life together. I know God has a destination for the two of us that will be greater than we could ever have imagined for ourselves.
