God Believes in You - Jill Phillips

Please ignore the video, but the song is beautiful, and hopefully goes with today's post.

Words and music by Pierce Pettis

When you start to doubt if you exist
God believes in you
Confounded by the evidence
God believes in you
When your light burns so dim
When your chances seem so slim
And you swear you don’t believe in Him
God believes in you

When you rise up just to fall again
God believes in you
Deserted by your closest friends
God believes in you
When you’re betrayed with a kiss
And you turn your cheek to another fist
It doesn’t have to end like this
God believes in you

Everything matters if anything matters at all
Everything matters no matter how big
No matter how small
God believes in you
Oh God believes in you

When you’re so ashamed that you could die
God believes in you
And you can’t to right even though you try
God believes in you
Blessed are the ones who grieve
The ones who mourn and the ones who bleed
In sorrow you sow but in joy you’ll reap
God believes in you
Oh blessed are the ones who grieve
The ones who mourn and the ones who grieve
In sorrow you sow but in joy you’ll reap
God believes in you
Oh God believes in you

Have you heard the original Pierce Pettis version? I love it. Pierce rocks. And he was a friend of my much-beloved favourite musician, Mark Heard. he does a cover of a Mark heard song on all his albums since Mark passed away.

I have not "heard" the original. Do you have the Mark Heard tribute CD?
