It’s been a hard week with many late nights, many tears. I did find a new blog with lots of heartfelt words and encouragement for the tough times. She had posted this song. It was completely new to me — I know, I’m totally not with it — but, it really spoke to me…put words to my pain…and His great faithfulness.
Thanks,TracieJane, for introducing me to Meredith Andrews and for your honesty.
(((Her videos won’t post to my site…not sure why. You can watch it on youtube: Meredith Andrews, “You’re Not Alone.”)))
I searched for love, when the night came, and it closed in.
I was alone, but You found me, where I was hiding.
And now I’ll never ever be the same. It was the sweetest voice, that called my name sayin’,
“You’re not alone, for I am here; let me wipe away your every fear.
My love, I’ve never left your side; I have seen you through the darkest night.
And I’m the One who’s loved you all your life — All of your life.”
You cry yourself to sleep, cause the hurt is real, and the pain cuts deep.
All hope seems lost, with heartache your closest friend, and everyone else long gone.
You’ve had to face the music on your own; but there is a sweeter song that calls you home, sayin’,
“You’re not alone, for I am here; let Me wipe away your every tear.
My love, I’ve never left your side; I have seen you through the darkest nights.
And I’m the One who’s loved you all your life — All your life…
Faithful and true… Forever, My love will carry you…
You’re not alone, for I… I am here, let me wipe away your every fear…Oh yeah,
My love, I’ve never left your side; I have seen you through your darkest night…
Your darkest nights, and I’m the One who’s loved you all your life,
All of your life.”
The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. ~Deuteronomy 31:8
I am with you always, even to the end of the age. ~Matthew 28:2
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. ~Hebrews 4:14-16
