This past week, my family lost an incredibly wonderful person; my cousin Josiah. He died in a car accident and I am now in Tennessee with my family. I cant even begin to explain what has taken place over the past few days, but what I can say is that God is SO good. Like SO good. I mean this has opened up a whole new part of my life that puts a whole new meaning to "God is good." I can write more about it later. But the reason for the post was to share a song and really the whole service from Sunday. The link to watch the service is here. And here are the lyrics to the first song that make me cry every time:

We can hear it growing louder
Songs from every nation
Rising to your throne

Saints in every generation
Singing for Your glory
Telling what You've done

From the north and south
We are crying out
There is hope in Jesus name

You're Amazing God
You're Amazing God
You can bear the weight of every heavy heart
You can heal the pain
You can clean the stain
You can turn our tears into songs of praise
You're Amazing God

Beauty rises from the ashes
Sorrow turns to gladness
When our God is near

You speak light into our darkness
You heal the broken hearted
You wipe away our tears

Songs of praise surround us
Songs of praise surround us
Hear it growing louder
We are growing louder

Again, God is so good.
