Here’s a worship song I’ve fallen in love with. It’s called Good, Good Father by Housefires. Chris Tomlin has also recently done a cover of it that’s hit the radio.
The lyrics in the chorus are so simple, but so profound to me.
You’re a good good Father. It’s who You are. It’s who You are. It’s who You are.
And I’m loved by You. It’s who I am. It’s who I am. It’s who I am.
Two things I love about this chorus:
- The use of 3: The number three is a symbol of completeness, finality (ex. the Trinity, the amount of time Jesus spent in the grave, the number of times God called Samuel, and way more!). It’s saying “God, You are good! Completely. Forever. End of story.” And “I am loved by that good Father. Always.”
- In a world that defines you by what your job is, this song reminds me that who I am is simply a child of God. I am God’s son, loved unconditionally. That’s who God says I am. That’s who I am.
Take a moment today and worship Him. Find a quiet spot and meditate on this truth.
We are all prodigals who have run off and done our own thing, but our Father, while we were still a long way off, runs to us because He’s good and He loves us.
