Featuring Blessing Offor

You made the rain, so when it falls on me
Should I complain, or feel You calling me
It’s all on me to stay
And really catch what You’re showing
It’s my roots that You’re growing
‘Cause life is more than this moment
You are the light, so when the darkness falls
The greatest heights, they never seem so tall no not at all
You’re right, it’s my roots that You’re growing, don’t wanna miss what You’re showing

Ain’t no doubt about You
Everywhere that I go
You keep showing up (Lord You)
Make me wanna shout it
You’re the goodness in my life
And Imma tell You my truth
They may come, they may go
You keep showing up (sure do)
Ain’t no doubt about it
You are, You are
The goodness in my life

You are the joy
You’re the smile on the face of Your boy
You’re the flowers at that park in Detroit
Still the words on the back of our coins
Let’s make some noise
You cover me, my defender when You’re rolling up Your sleeves
You’re the truth that’s gonna set the captive free
The only King that’s ever chose to bleed, is what I believe

Now they keep trying to make Your glory fade
But I ain’t really sweating what they say

Through the good and the bad and the ugly
I can still see the sunshine above me
Lord I love all the ways that You love me
You’re the good, You’re the good, You’re the goodness

About This Song

"As most of you know, it's been a hard road for me the last couple years after losing my firstborn son. I began writing this record, 'Life After Death,' with lamenting songs which you would expect. At that point, I thought, am I just going to live here? Is this my journey for the rest of my life? But God began to give me glimpses of his goodness. I wrote this truth on a piece of paper one day, 'You're still the goodness of my life.' I started to believe that, and I started to see glimpses of how God was good to me and how He is still good to me.

'The Goodness' feels like a celebration. I began to think about how gracious God is and how He gives us little glimpses of His goodness to my family, to me, and to you in whatever valley you're coming out of or have walked through. Then I read a quote and it said, 'A saint is not someone who is good, but someone who experiences the goodness of God.' I have experienced the goodness of God my whole life and I will continue to look for and experience the goodness of God."
