Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig, and Dan Dean (of Phillips, Craig, and Dean) have this amazing feel for choosing a song. Some of the most meaningful songs I’ve come to love have been their hits: Mercy Came Running, Friend of God, Favorite Song of All, Revelation Song, Hallelujah (Your Love is Amazing), and a host of others.

You know what I like best about PDC? While they record amazing hits, tour the country promoting the love of God, and win Dove Awards right and left, they each pastor their own churches in Texas. They are devoted family men. If anyone knows the true meaning of Isaiah 30:18, I feel like they do because it is evidenced in their actions.
“Your Name” is a PCD song that is speaks to me on many levels. Mostly, it speaks to me of God’s mercy and how great our Creator is. My favorite line is: “Nothing has the power to save, but Your name.” When it all boils down to it, God’s saving grace is all we need.

I’m ready for a little mercy and comfort today. I am ready to wait for His help. And as for being happy? When I yield myself to the Lord’s will and His perfect time, I am always happy. Do I always feel happy immediately? No, because I am a stubborn human being who wants things my way and in my time. In my fifty years, I have found that waiting on the Lord brings incomparable joy.
How about you? Are you ready for some mercy, comfort, joy, and happiness?
