My Favorite song. [at this moment]

My favorite song could change daily. Maybe even hourly.....

But right now, in this moment.... This is my song.....

Ginny Owens sings it.

"If you want me to."


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 have 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'll never go alone (yeah oh oh) 

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 sufferin' Your love put You through 
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to 

When I cross over Jordan, I'm gonna sing, gonna shout
Gonna look into your eyes and see you never let me down
So take me on the pathway that leads me home to you
And I will walk through the valley if you want me to 

Yes, I will walk through the valley if you want me to
Isaiah 30:15b spoke to me many years ago... "In quietness & confidence-let that be your strength." It has   the  same effect on me now. I just read it & it brought tears to my weary eyes. I remember what I was going    through at that time. The pain I was feeling, the words I wanted to say, the tears I cried. I would never want to go back to that dark time in my life. Bt as I think about it now, I wouldn't trade those trials now. That is the      closest I have ever felt to God.  I never felt that much Joy or Love for my Savior. Isn't it amazing that God lets us go through trials so that we can DRAW closer to HIM? I am going through something minor, but God has    showed me HE IS in control. I am so thankful that I serve a God that cares enough to let me know..."Hey, Beka! I have everything under control!" 
Isaiah 30:18----> "So the Lord must wait for you to come to him, so he can show you his love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help!" 


Lord, I wait on You. Help me to CALM my ANXIOUS heart & tongue. For out of the heart the mouth speaks.... so guard my lips & let them only bring LOVE. amen. 


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.... I feel like I need to go write that on a chalkboard for a looooooong time so it can SINK in. 

Love even when it hurts,
-B

  2. I found your blog through Ria @ Life as a Wife! I can't wait to read more about your journey as a new mom, as I am in the same boat myself! I can't believe you posted about this song... I consider this song to be the soundtrack of my life, and just posted about it earlier this month! Crazy! I think we'll be great blog friends! And I wouldn't stress about your son being a thumbsucker. Don't listen to all those opinionated people who think they know best about raising your son! A little thumb sucking never killed anybody... and it is oh-so-cute! Be blessed!
