Read (from the New Living Translation)
5Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!
Wally joins us again today with a special interview…
I had a chance to sit down with Mark Hall of Casting Crowns and talk about what happens when life gets real. The real that happens when you get the diagnosis from your doctor that it is indeed cancer. It doesn’t matter who you are that kind of news stops you in your tracks and forces you to contemplate and even evaluate your faith.
Mark is a guy who has spent his life telling people that God is bigger than their problems. He has written songs about praising God through the storms of life, and now he was having to take his own advice. He talks about music helping him work through this, but something I found particularly interesting, was how knowing who God is because you have spent time with Him and have been in a relationship with Him in the good times, helps carry you through the times when you don’t feel like God is good or that He is even there at all.
