No Matter What

So much has been going on in the Graham household lately that it is really hard to know where to start. Pain, Sickness, Death, Sadness, Heartache have all been a very tangible part of our lives for the past 2 weeks. It has been a difficult season to say the least, and as we continue to walk thru this time our lives the faithfulness of God continues to be just as real and tangible as the pain and heartache.

During this season my anthem has become Kerrie Robert's song No Matter What. The words have been healing to my soul as it she has expressed in this song the very feelings I have inside.

"No matter what, I’m gonna love You. No matter what I’m gonna need You. I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain, But if not, if not, I’ll trust You no matter what."

You see no matter what happens in life, no matter what comes my way, no matter what God gives me, or no matter what God might choose to never give me, i'm going to love Him, and i'm going to need Him, and i'm going to trust Him.

I am going to ask why? I am going to be sad. That is natural, I am human, but I am also His daughter. He loves me. He knows what is best for me, and He has whispered to me during this storm... "I've got this." The love and faithfulness of God is indescribable! The legacy of faith, passed down to me by my family, has given me the foundation to stand firm on and say "no matter what."

"NO MATTER WHAT" - Kerrie Roberts

I’m running back to Your promises one more time
Lord that’s all I can hold on to
I gotta say this has taken me by surprise, but nothing surprises You
Before a heartache can ever touch my life
It has to go through Your hands
And even though I keep asking why, I keep asking why

No matter what, I’m gonna love You
No matter what I’m gonna need You
I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain
But if not, if not, I’ll trust You no matter what, no matter what

When I’m stuck in this nothingness by myself
I’m just sitting in silence
There’s no way I can make it without Your help, I won’t even try it
I know You have Your reasons for everything so I will keep believing
Whatever I might be feeling, God You are my hope
And You will be my strength

Anything I don’t have You can give it to me, but it’s OK if You don’t
I’m not here for those things
The touch of Your love is enough on its own
No matter what I still love You and I’m gonna need You

No matter what I’m gonna love You, no matter what I’m gonna need You
I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain
But if not, if not, I’ll trust You
I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain
But if not, but if not, I’ll trust You

No matter what
No matter no matter what
No matter no matter what
No matter no matter what

WOW, I wept as this song came on the radio as I left Mama's on Sunday driving home. What "timing" and how fitting, I told God as I drove, HE is awesome and just what we need when we need it! Nothing is by coincidence, he planned it all! Thanks for posting this, it is my theme song as well!! Love U

This song is amazing. I haven't heard of it before and am so glad you shared it here. You're right. The words are SO fitting for our lives right now and no matter what we're going to trust Him. I love you and am so proud of you for holding on tight to the truth even when you're walking in the dark.

I had never heard this song either but it might be a new favorite! Thanks for sharing it. You're doing great juggling all the balls in the air right now. Just take care of your "kid" and your household and the Lord will honor your efforts way more than you would imagine.
