The Love Collision: Even When It Hurts


Because you know God doesn’t give His heart in pieces, that His love never fails… you’re confident in His love and you make a decision… to praise Him even when it hurts. 

There’s so much heart in this song… we can’t escape trouble, even when we are in the Father’s love… I think that’s when trouble seems to want to find us more… when it sees us confident in the Love of God. This causes us to doubt… if He loves me as He says, why should I go through what I’m going through? Jesus said we “will have trouble” some other translations say “many trials and sorrows”  “tribulation ““suffering” but He also encourages us “But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
The psalms also says “The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.” Psalm 34:19-20

As sure as the troubles come, is just as sure as God’s deliverance from them… and not a bone in your body will be broken… meaning He’s with you in the fire, protecting you through it and you’re coming out whole. You only fall under the weight when you stop believing/trusting in this Love.
So in the heat of your trials, when you want to give up… hold on tight to the truth of your Father’s love, and praise Him even when it hurts. Let His love be your assurance… because love went to the cross and paid the highest price. Love set you free and overcame the world and all its trials for you.  
 
Even when the fight seems lost
I'll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell
I'll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I'll sing Your praise




Even when my strength is lost
I'll praise You
Even when I have no song
I'll praise You
Even when it's hard to find the words
Louder then I'll sing Your praise
