I Still Believe…. February 10, 2008

Filed under: Stinking Cool Music — Jess @ 4:48 pm

The Handsome Hunk crashed the car on the way to church this morning. He is fine. He thinks the car is fine. We can’t get it until tomorrow because the tow truck place is closed on Sundays. (apparently they will tow your car on Sunday’s you just can’t have it back? Is that weird to only me?)

So, in light of this wonderful news I thought I would share with you all my very favorite song. This is one of those songs that you turn on when you’re having a bad day. You know one of those songs that you crank up and sing at the top of your lungs? The one that you can put on repeat and listen to over and over and over and it never loses it’s power to move your very soul? It’s one of those. It’s hip-hoppity and yea….just wonderful. The amazingly talented Crystal Lewis sings it on her Fearless album. I don’t have a recording–actually I don’t feel like trying to track it down (maybe I will later)— to put on here, so you just get to read the wonderful lyrics written by the very gifted Kirk Franklin……

When I can’t feel your love for me
the pain in my soul it won’t let me see
I imagine you here and it dries up my tears
even though I can’t see I still believe

I believe in love
I believe in peace
I believe someday you’ll return for me
I believe in things that I cannot see
and when my heart says no I still believe

Just when I think my faith is gone
I hear your sweet voice crying out “hold on”
it’s amazing how we, we’re always meant to be
and now I can breathe again

I believe in love
I believe in peace
I believe someday you’ll return for me
I believe in things that I cannot see
and when my heart says no
I still believe

I believe the sun will shine again
and this loneliness someday will end
I will stand right here ’til your voice I hear
forever and always

I believe in love
I believe in peace
I believe someday you’ll return for me
I believe in things that I cannot see
and when my heart says no
I still believe

    Hey, I didn’t trash the car, I crashed it. And I sorta skidded on top of the snow, not under the snow, so this thing’s fine.

    Interesting, I was sitting in the car singing these words;

    I know that You are strong
    I know You’re more than able
    to save me from whatever
    ever comes my way
    I know You are a Healer
    I know You can deliver
    I know that You can rescue me
    but even when I
    cannot see Your hand
    when You move in a way
    that I would not have planned
    still I will worship You
    I will worship You in the midnight hour
    I will worship You when I’m in the fire
    I will worship You when all hope seems gone
    I will stand and proclaim that
    You are my God
    I will worship You
