04. Faithful

by Shawn McDonald


Itís been so cold I can see my breath / Feeling like winter inside my chest / And I hope
that I can make it through today / It gets so easy to just forget / The troubles that You brought me
through and yet / I find it so hard to trust that You will stay / I need to, I need to remember // Youíre
faithful / Even when I fall down, even when I go south / You will always be / Faithful / And I need You
now, oh, I need You now / Every part of me / Youíre faithful // What if I choose to just let go / And
let You take full control / What if I finally trust that Your love remains / Sometimes I feel like Iím
way over my head, and I lose You / But Iím going to do whatever it takes to stay / Faithful

Behind the Song:
"Itís about the reality of God: Heís faithful regardless of how unfaithful we are. The verses are metaphorical: ďItís been so cold I can see my breath / Itís feeling like winter inside my chest.Ē Thereís something that comes along with winter that kind of feels like death. Plants die and get glazed with cold, icy snow. Rivers and lakes freeze. Life kind of ceases, kind of like our own lives sometimes. When life freezes and it feels like death has come upon us, itís easy to forget Godís faithfulness, to forget all the troubles that Heís brought us through. My parents were never in my life growing up, so Iíve always struggled with a staying God. The thought of a father that stays with me is hard for my mind to wrap around. Itís a huge struggle for me to trust that there is a Father who cares about me, whoíll never leave me. This song is a reminder that I need to remember that Heís faithful, even when Iím not." - Shawn
