Sometime in the coming weeks, I will hopefully be singing a solo as part of this song with my church choir. It is a pretty song with powerful words. It speaks of God knowing the suffering that would come our way, knowing how we would hurt. The chorus says I already knew what you’d be going though, and I’ve been here before you all the time. I’m no stranger to the pain, for I bore the shame and suffering for you. Your trial didn’t take me by surprise, I already knew.
I am looking forward to singing this song, but it also scares me a little bit. What if God placed this song at this time for me to sing because there is something I will be going through, that He already knows about. Something that will make me want to break down and cry as I sing it. If that’s the case, I’ll be even more thankful for these words. Perhaps they are not for me, but for someone who will be listening on that specific Sunday. Perhaps it is for someone who may read this. Regardless, I am thankful for God’s perfect timing and His perfect plan.
