Some days are just hard. There’s no denying it or getting around it. Other days our hearts hurt. We may not even understand why. The ache is simply there. However, no matter what emotions are stirring or what is happening in our lives, we can always go to God in prayer. In Christ, there is no condemnation, no shame, and no guilt. He has completely forgiven us.

What’s more, God understands even when we can’t. He understands our hopes and fears. He understands the struggles and the tears. Along with all of this, God sees the bigger picture. There is a purpose for every struggle. Nothing is wasted in the hands of God. All He asks is that we trust and try.

So if today is a little hard and your heart is a little sore, this song is for you. I pray it will inspire courage.

being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; ~ Philippians 1:6 NKJV

Even When It's Hard

Verse 1

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
God, I’ll come to You
And lay down my guard

Verse 2

Even when fears come
Even when hope sways
God, I’ll come to You
No, I won’t run away

Chorus

Because I know You’re still here
I know You’re still good
And even in the dark
You still understood
So I’m crying out now
With my whole heart
Help me to trust
Even when it hurts

Lord, even when it’s hard

Verse 3

Even when it stings
Even when it’s dark
God, I’ll come to You
Please light a spark

Verse 4

Even when pain strikes
Even when dreams die
God, I’ll come to You
And lift my hands high

Chorus

Because I know You’re still here
I know You’re still good
And even in the dark
You still understood
So I’m crying out now
With my whole heart
Help me to trust
Even when it hurts

Lord, even when it’s hard

Bridge

So this is my prayer
This is my cry
Help me to trust
Help me to try

‘Cause I’m tired and worn
Weary from the fight
I can’t bear the scorn
God, would you help me tonight

When life falls apart
I’ll say You are good
When my heart breaks
I’ll turn to Your Word

Chorus

Because I know You’re still here
I know You’re still good
And even in the dark
You still understood
So I’m crying out now
With my whole heart
Help me to trust
Even when it hurts

Lord, even when it’s hard

All is Grace, Esther Noe
