SONG OF THE WEEK: He’s My Son by Mark Schultz

Have you ever had a song that every time you listened to it, you cried?  That is what Mark Schult’s song  He’s My Son did to me.  Mark Schultz was a youth leader who wrote a song from the viewpoint of a dad of a 14 year old son who was struggling with cancer.  This song is so raw and so real that it touched the place where I had been on my knees with health scares about my own kids.  So for years I couldn’t listen to this song. 

Then I heard Mark Schultz in concert and he said the boy it was written about was alive and strong and doing great.  So I began to listen to the song again.  Last month, I met Mark at the International Christian Retailing Show and he said the boy is now 27 and healthy.  Ain’t God good!

So listen to the song and know God’s glorious answers to this father’s prayer.
