Water and Dust (Cory Asbury)

Artist: Cory Asbury
Words and Music: Cory Asbury
Album: Reckless Love
Release: 2018
Tempo: 83 beats per minute
Key: F#
Details: God is not yet done on us. He still making something out of nothing and He is never finished in doing something extraordinary in our lives in case that we lose our hope. Like most people living in pain and difficulties, I also felt giving up like saying, “Oh God I’m so tired, I want to experience now your promise.”

But this song reminds me of whatever happens, we should never give up.
