sing truth

"As Christians, we know that our greatest problem--separation from God--has been solved. Jesus Christ, the only Savior, has taken our sin upon himself, enduring God's wrath in our place and rising from the dead to assure us of our forgiveness.
But all our problems don't end when we turn to Christ. We still get sick. Marriages end. Children die. Our plans, great or small, are disrupted. We grow weary in the battle.
Scripture assures us that God is sovereignly using our difficulties as tools to make us more like his Son. "We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love as been into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us" (Romans 5:3-5). While we know these things are true, in the midst of our hardships we can lose perspective. Problems can loom large, and our hopes can grow dim.
Come Weary Saints is an invitation to redirect your focus to the God whose love has been forever demonstrated at the cross of Calvary. As you listen to these songs, may your faith and joy in the Savior be strengthened for the challenges you face, now or in the future. "
{stolen from the liner notes of SGMmusic's "Come Weary Saints"}.

This is among my favorite weapons right now in the battle for joy and trust. So I'm doing a little advertising...Buy this cd. It doesn't matter what season you're in. If life is rough {read: if your circumstances ever feel parallel to 'rounding the Cape of Good Hope during one of it's infamous storms, in a dinghy, without oars.} buy it. If life is smooth {read: circumstances feel parallel to cruising the Mediterranean in a yacht.} still buy it. It will lay a foundation of truth. God is good. Sing about it.
That's all. Commercial over.
