THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
Even when we don’t feel him, God is still with us.
This song started life a long time ago, yet it feels so relevant for today. The starting point was Isaiah 7 and 9 and the names of Jesus and that he is God with us. I had the chorus written with the line "God With Us", and a melody, that's all I had.
A year ago, I was looking at events that were going on around me. There was so much change going on. I usually don't mind change, but I felt like there was so much uncertainty happening. I was struggling to see what God was doing in it. I started to write a song to express how I was feeling at the time, and ended up with quite a few verses, but nothing else. Then I remembered the "God With Us" chorus.
Even though this song started life over a year ago, I believe that the words are so right for the time that we find ourselves in right now. When we are feeling unsure, fearful, and out of control about the events that are happening around us, we can still put our hope in God. Where we are struggling to see what God is doing this time, we have to choose to trust him, to believe in him. God is a good Father, and we have to choose to believe and trust in him daily. God will never fail us.
