“You Are Good”

This song has become one of Northland’s anthems.

We sing it more enthusiastically because it has become so familiar over time. We don’t wear it out, though. At least I don’t think we have.

I remember the first time I heard/sang this song at Northland — it was a number of years ago; we were meeting in the old roller rink still; the musical arrangement was different than the one we have been using lately. The impact it had on me then is pretty much the impact it has on me now. I generally find myself wearing out my vocal cords with an enthusiasm I don’t often express and then, just about the time the reality of what I’m saying sinks in to the deepest places of me, I gasp and can’t sing a few words over the tears and then, just as quickly, my voice returns.  I sing, renewed by the truth that God is GOOD. All the time. All.
