Our new song “For My Good” was three years in the making and 45 minutes in the writing. Three years of watching people we love have to walk through a lot of really hard things. Three years of working through what it means in Romans 8:28 when it says that “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Because of the cross, we can take our eyes off our wounds and place them on Christ’s wounds because it is by His wounds that we are healed (1 Peter 2:24).
Psalm 147:3 says that “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” The question we believe Jesus is asking us now is this, “Do you want to be healed?” (John 5:6)
It’s our own stories and the stories of those that we love that are full of burdens and disappointments, that we are choosing to trade for goodness, glory and resurrection. Resurrection over the places in our hearts that have been defined by loss.
So we are inviting you to share your story of seeing the Lord work things for good in your life. We know we need reminders ourselves and telling our own story can be so very healing. But our stories also encourage others so that we may comfort others with the comfort we’ve been given (2 Corinthians 1:4). So they know they are not alone, not the only ones.
As you post your story, just use the hashtag #projectformygood and then we can all see the stories and speak life over each other. To walk in resurrection together. To walk with open hearts willing to trust that God is here, that He is able, that He is good, and that He will turn all things around to use them for good in the lives of His children He dearly loves.
We know the truth in this song is resonating in a unique way as we share it and we believe that the Lord gave us this song for such a time as this for His people. So let’s speak this truth over each other. Let’s celebrate our stories together.
