He said, “My feelings kept slamming up against something solid in me, and that was the roots of my faith. The fact that I’ve been in the Word for years. The fact that I’ve been following Jesus for years, and the roots of my faith were reminding me: God is who He says He is.”

“All of these things you’ve ever read and believed and trusted are true. It doesn’t stop being true just because this took you by surprise.”
“I think sometimes when we’re caught by surprise we feel like maybe God’s caught by surprise. But He’s at the end of my life already looking back on it. So I’ve got to remind myself of that.”
Hall who sang the famous worship song , Casting Crowns  said his recovery was fast after the surgery.

“It was about two-and-a-half months that I was out recovering from surgery, so it took a while. But compared to what so many go though, I was really fortunate to be able to get back out on the road.”

“Everything happened at a time that we were off, out of the road, and we didn’t have a lot scheduled. So I didn’t have to cancel events, and we ended up only canceling like two. But it really was a ‘God thing’ that it worked out like it did,”he added.
