The pathway is broken, and the signs are unclear,
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here.
But just because You love me the way that You do,
I'm gonna walk through the valley if You want me to.
'Cause I'm not who I was when I took my first step,
And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet.
So if all of these trials bring me closer to You,
Then I will go through the fire if You want me to.
It may not be the way I would've chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home.
But You never said it would be easy,
You only said I'd never go alone.
So when the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help...
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through,
And I will go through the valley if You want me to.
I LOVE this song. It seems to me that it should be our ultimate response...to just say to God, alright, I'll do it if You want me to, because You're still on Your throne no matter what. And He is.
I lost my aunt and uncle last month, and its been so hard. To spiritually try to reason why God would allow them to be taken away is extremely hard...yet I know He's all over this. I would give anything to have just one more day with them, but I know if I had one more day, I would want one MORE day. It would never be enough.
The world has lost two extremely amazing, godly, loving, beautiful, compassionate, wonderful people who made a difference in everyones lives they touched. And we may never know why, but I believe that God knew that Anthony and Kim Brandon weren't going to live to see their 50th birthdays either one when he CREATED THE UNIVERSE.
He knew when He let them raise three beautiful daughters.
He knew it when I ran over to their house 3 days before the accident and my aunt asked me to come over more often.
He knew it when I hugged her and told her I definitely would.
He knew. It's almost too crazy to believe.
It still hurts. Its still gonna hurt. But God is in control, and He knows what He's doing.
