This morning, on my way in to work, i was listening to the playlist of music that’s going to be played at my wedding, on shuffle. The song “How He Loves” by John Mark McMillan came on… it’s the version from the album The Song Inside the Sound of Breaking Down. In this version there is another verse that you won’t here in the updated single version or the David Crowder version. It’s a verse that talks directly to the situation the song is about (you can watch the story behind the song here). It goes like this:
I thought about you the day Stephen died
And you met me between my breaking
I know that I still love you God
Despite the agony
See people they want to tell me your cruel
But if Stephen could sing
He’d say its not true cause your good
And it got me to thinking…
There is another verse to this song that a lot of us know, sing and connect with on a regular basis. A verse that we never hear… a verse that’s connected to a story and a life… to great pain and connection. And it made me wonder, what would MY verse that nobody hears be?
What would i write?
What would be my circumstance of great sorrow or moment of breaking or time of great need that i would meet and connect with God on a whole new level be?
What life changing moment could i sing, of a loving caring God, through?
I’m gonna try to write something… and when i do… i’ll post it here to share.
What about you? What’s your verse?
