"The song 'Even If' is incredibly special to me. My son Sam is 15 years old, and he's been a diabetic since he was two. When you're a parent of a child with any kind of chronic illness, these things don't go away. You have a lot of good days, but some days you feel like you're losing bad. I was in the midst of one of those bad days when 'Even If' was written. The song is a reminder to people in difficult situations that don't seem to go away. God is worthy long before any of those circumstances even showed up. This song is a declaration to God that even if He went silent and never said another word, He's still worthy to be praised and that He's our greatest hope in the midst of the trial," lead singer Bart Millard says of the faith-filled track.
The song is currently sitting at number one on iTunes (click here to buy) where Lifer is now available for pre-order with a release date of March 31.
