"I know this is not anything like you thought the story of your life was gonna be...but there's so much of the story that's still yet to unfold." Few people know the pain and the promise in that statement better than Steven Curtis Chapman. The past few years have been an incredible journey that Chapman wouldn't have chosen, yet has taught him so very much. Those lessons permeate every song on Chapman's new album The Glorious Unfolding. Lyrically the album is teeming with the substantive lyrics that have made Chapman the most awarded artist in Christian music with 57 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, five GRAMMYs, 47 No.

Thoughts on Songs with Steven Curtis Chapman
3 years ago
This beautiful song carries such a strong message, which is probably why it's so popular at weddings. This takes "for better and for worse" to a whole new level. Most of it is self-explanatory, but don't you just love the comparison between changing seasons and the changing years of life--both are intentional, both are part of the beauty of life. And as age takes away what the world considers "beauty," Chapman describes it as growing in beauty--faithfulness, devotion, deep beauty that sometimes only love can see. It brings tears to my eyes! Beautiful!
