Lyric For The Day 8.1.12 from God Believes In You by Pierce Pettis

Pettis God Believes

When you rise up just to fall again
God believes in you
Deserted by your closest friends
God believes in you

Oh, everything matters
If anything matters at all
Everything matters
No matter how big, no matter how small
Oh, God believes in you
God believes in you

When you're so ashamed that you could die
God believes in you
And you can't do right even though you try
God believes in you

 From God Believes In You by Pierce Pettis

Of all the songs I played on my radio show, or in the context of quiet reflective services, this Pierce Pettis song has had the most response. It is an astounding song of pastoral tenderness and theological insight. It is a song of belief when belief is all but lost. It is a reminder not only that spirituality is about what God does through his grace rather than what we do through our smart ideas, theological cleverness or self righteousness piety. It is also a reminder that God believes in our ability to achieve things in God’s Kingdom even when we feel far from able. It is a great song to play over and over and over on your iPod if you want to feed a healthy soul!
