I Still Believe

Scattered words and empty thoughts
seem to pour from my heart
I've never felt so torn before
seems I don't know where to start
but it's now that I feel Your grace falls like rain
from every fingertip, washing away my pain
I still believe in Your faithfulness
I still believe in Your truth
I still believe in Your holy word
even when I don't see, I still believe
Though the questions still fog up my mind
with promises I still seem to bear
even when answers slowly unwind
it's my heart I see You prepare
but its now that I feel Your grace fall like rain
from every finger tip, washing away my pain
The only place I can go is into your arms
where I throw to you my feeble prayers
in brokenness I can see that this was your will for me
Help me to know You are near. 

Barely 100 days after Jeremy Camp married the love of his life, Melissa, she passed away after losing her battle with ovarian cancer.  Just a couple of days, while grieving in the home of his parents, Jeremy feels these words impressed on his heart from God:
"Pick up your guitar."
The last thing he wanted or felt like doing, but in obedience to the Lord's prompting he did and the song I Still Believe flowed from his heart.

Born January 12, 1978 is a contemporary Christian musician from Lafayette, Indiana. Camp has released seven albums, four of them RIAA-certified as Gold and two are live albums, and 17 number-one hit songs. His original music is a mixture of ballads and rock.

Here's an interview Jeremy did for 100Huntley about seven months ago.  The length is about 11 minutes, but you will be blessed by taking the time to view it:

Tyndale House Publishers sent me a complimentary copy of Camp's memoir I Still Believe for the purpose of review.

I have been blessed by reading I Still Believe, which is a beautiful story of God's restoration and faithfulness.  While Camp's writing may not be the smoothest in this revised and expanded memoir, he shares genuinely from his heart and experiences.  His writing is transparent and such a blessing to read.  Camp's testimony is one of searching, brokenness, restoration and God's amazing grace.

Wow... I had no idea about his wife or that that's where that song came from. So sad, but also, what amazing restoration.
