Whether You Feel It or Not

Today was the day we decided to tear the stage at church and get rid of all the Christmas decorations.  It’s one of those things that you know needs to be done, but you would rather do just about anything else.  There’s a whole lot more excitement to decorating for Christmas than putting it all away.  Thankfully, it’s all done!

After taking the Christmas decorations away, I was setting up the stage for rehearsal tonight and services on Sunday.  I was flipping through my Amazon library and ran across Matt Maher’s All The People Said Amen album.  I hit play and started moving things on the stage.

During the song Your Grace is Enough, Matt Maher shared briefly about why he wrote the song.  I had listened to it before, but thought it was so powerful as I heard it again:

“I wrote that ’cause I was going through a difficult time and I needed to be reminded that despite what was going on in my heart, those words in Scripture are true, whether you feel them or not, that God’s grace is sufficient.”

What a great thought and reminder: God’s grace is sufficient, whether I feel it or not. Sometimes we let how we feel determine what we believe to be true.  Instead, we should allow the truth of God’s Word and who He is (and who He says we are) to guide our feelings.

Appreciated that reminder today and hope you do, too.  Thanks Matt!
