“…And I hope that failure comes your way.
And shows you there’s a limit to your own strength.
‘Til you can’t help but offer other people grace, Yeah, I hope that failure comes
That’s what I wish for you 
What I hope you find 
May it all come true 
Knowing sometimes good things come from suffering 
Yeah, sometimes good things can come from suffering…” 

Jason Gray’s lyrics for a song he wrote for his kids may make you flinch at first, but he knows the treasures God can bring through our failures. 

From the complex relationship with his own father to his painful divorce, Jason has found forgiveness and faith coming alive again and the healing that comes when we tend to our wounds.

Join me for an honest conversation with one of my favorite songwriters. Jason has been through a hard season and God is just showing him more of what love and grace really are. Listen below!
