it’s been a long time since i blogged song lyrics, and there’s a new sara groves album out, and this song was co-written by the wonderful alli rogers. it’s really sort of a miracle that it hasn’t ended up on here yet, but that’s just because it’s too new to have lyrics posted online anywhere, so i had to type them out while listening. i finally overcame my laziness and did it though, so you all can appreciate this beautiful song.

I believe in a blessing I don’t understand
I’ve seen rain fall on the wicked and the just
Rain is no measure of his faithfulness
He withholds no good thing from us
 
No good thing from us
No good thing from us

I believe in a peace that flows deeper than pain
That broken find healing in love
Pain is no measure of his faithfulness
He withholds no good thing from us
 
No good thing from us
No good thing from us
 
I will open my hands will open my heart
I will open my hands will open my heart
I am nodding my head an emphatic yes to all that you have for me
 
I believe in a fountain that will never dry
Though I’ve thirsted and didn’t have enough
Thirst is no measure of his faithfulness
He withholds no good thing from us
 
No good thing from us
No good thing from us
 
I will open my hands will open my heart
I will open my hands will open my heart
I am nodding my head an emphatic yes to all that you have for me
 
No good thing from us
No good thing from us
He withholds no good thing from us
 
I will open my hands will open my heart
I will open my hands will open my heart
I am nodding my head an emphatic yes to all that you have for me

 some days i struggle to believe this. could it really be that a loving God is choosing what’s best for the world in this pain, thirst, and rain? choosing what’s best for me?

today i’m choosing to open my hands and heart to the blessings and the rain. and believing that God is faithful in both. i pray that you do the same.
