Ahh, it's Music Monday! :) Sharing a new song every week has been exciting and a challenge at the same time! I find myself wanting to figure out how to play every single one of my favorite songs I listen to (like... Strong God by Meredith Andrews). But this week, I felt a tug on my heart to share a new original with you.

This is not one of those songs that I felt an immediate connection with. It was a struggle to write, both lyrically and musically. I changed the melody several times before just simplifying it completely.

You see, I wanted this song to be just perfect. I kept thinking there was something missing or something that needed to be fixed, but the more and more I played it, the simple chorus just resonated with me - Our God is so faithful. He is the faithful one.

There was nothing else I could really say.

This song reflects on what God has done in my life within the past year. How after months and months of struggling to have a baby, He was faithful and blessed us with a child. There were so many times when I doubted His faithfulness. And yet He remained faithful anyway. How undeserving I am.

I thought it only appropriate that my sweet boy make a little cameo in the background. Hope you don't mind the cute distraction. :)

(p.s. please forgive me for bumming it, I like being home and in my comfy clothes) (p.p.s. I am also posting over at A Place to Dwell this morning on how I stay creative! Check it out!)

 

Faithful One

Just wait, you say You know what's coming soon But I get impatient and lose all faith in waiting on you

Just pray, you say You'll give the answer soon But I ask again and again and again when the answer is you

You are the faithful one You are the faithful one When my prayers go numb and the waiting comes You are faithful, the faithful one

It's time, I know to let go of all my fear And trust that you're good and your plan is much better than what I hold dear

It's now, I see You're working it all for good One day the pain and the tears and the worry will be understood

You are the faithful one You are the faithful one When my prayers go numb and the waiting comes You are faithful, the faithful one

Even in my waiting, you know just what I need Even in my doubt, you still have faith in me Even when the words I pray are bitter on my lips You are even faithful to forgive
