Austin French’s Why God? | Fresh Friday

You may know Austin French from his fun, dance-inducing hits like Freedom Hymn and Born Again. With this new single, however, Austin exchanges his upbeat sound for a contemplative feel pouring out from hurts and questions in his own heart. Austin explores some of the hard questions we often ask of God.

Austin recently discussed the inspiration for the song as coming from one of his sons…

Why God started in a season of my life where I was on my knees screaming out those words for myself, and I remember feeling like it wasn’t allowed. Like it made me a bad Christian. My son asks me all these questions about anything and everything and he doesn’t always get my answers. But what he does get is that he can sit in his daddy’s lap and ask me anything, and I want every single question, and I love him no matter what. I believe that asking, "Why God?" doesn’t make us a bad Christian, maybe it just makes us a kid who needs their dad and that’s ok!

While we may not find the answers this side of heaven, Austin uses the song to assure his audience that God is with us in the middle of the hardest of circumstances. And it’s true! Our life verse for today speaks on this very topic from Isaiah 41:10…

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

What a wonderful thing to know that our God is with us through anything and everything. What do you think of this new song from Austin French?
