“Praise You In This Storm” by Casting Crowns
This is one of those rare songs that is just as powerful today as it was the first time I heard it, a couple of years ago. It brings me closer to God every single time I hear it.
(The lead singer explains the story behind the song first. To just hear the song, skip to about 2:00 in the video.)
This morning, my mind got stuck in the lyric: For You are who You are, no matter where I am. I love that reminder. Everything changes. Thus, the storms of life, if you will. Everything changes, all the time. Things will be different when I wake up tomorrow. It happens inside and outside, because of course everything changes out in the world, but I also change and grow, perceive things differently, see things through light and through darkness, myself and my experience changing based on who I am at a given moment. Everything changes, all the time.
Except for one.
God doesn’t change. Ever.
