Blessed Be Your Name by Matt Redman

We sang this worship song during the 2013 mission trip I was blessed to take with the youth of Saint Matthew Lutheran Church of Logan, Ohio. It was the first time I remember singing it.

I love how the song expresses an "in spite of" faith. In the New Testament portion of the Bible, Paul talks about praising God not for all circumstances, but in all circumstances. Even in the midst of the junk and the heartache that can come to us, God has still conquered sin and death, He still loves us, He still stands by us in all things, He still receives the repentant. So, no matter what my circumstances or how I feel, I will bless the Name of the God revealed in Jesus.

Check out Psalm 113:2-4.
