Songs & Scripture: Thy Will (Hillary Scott)

“Thy Will,” written & sung by Lady Antebellum’s lead singer Hillary Scott was inspired after a tragedy struck. I love this song because it brings the question of how to trust God as a Christian during times of suffering. May the verses I found in my study help you renew your faith and joy in the Lord as they helped me.
