“It’s easy to blame God for natural disasters, school shootings, and government scandals,” Christian artist Eddy “Rawsrvnt” Puyolsaid.
“The hard, but correct, thing to do is trust Him in those situations and realize He’s not the one to cause those type of events.”
As a way of reminding those who find it difficult to find hope in such circumstances, Rawsrvnt has penned a new song that proclaims “Father I Trust Ya.” The track also features the vocal talents of Sara Delight* from the band Inhabited and is featured on the Luvv 2 Worship compilation album released by Much Luvv Records.
It begins with the ever-so-relatable lyrics:
Woke up this morning with a lot on my head
I got shocked by something that the TV said
And then an email came in with some more bad news
Tell me what should I do, man? What should I choose?
Should I choose what the world says?
Or should I choose what Your “word” says?
’Cause I can’t make another day with this negativity that surrounds me
I need to break free right now
I need to hear Your voice right now
Can You please help me out
From what’s trying to drown me out?
Given recent headlines about the Oklahoma tornadoes, college campus shootings in California, and corruption coming out of D.C., how many people can honestly say they haven’t uttered similar audible prayers toward heaven?
“You see, I know that God is a good Father, a loving Father, a kind and compassionate Father, and one who never wishes harm upon His children. So He wouldn’t ever want a hurricane to destroy a city or a tsunami to wipe out a country or a famine to devastate a nation,” Rawsrvnt said.
“These things are all a result of a choice not to trust God at His word. It’s something we can read in Genesis 3.”
Rawsrvnt said the solution is to keep our eyes focused on Jesus and His redemptive work in us and others.
“He promised that He’ll never leave us nor forsake us,” Rawsrvnt said. “And that’s what I’m going to cling to.”
