My Comfort!

Last week I mentioned that in the past several years I have dealt with extreme sorrows and hurts in my life. During one of those times, my step-mom sent me a link to a song that made me cry. It was if God was speaking directly to me in order to comfort me in that moment. The song was called By Your Side by: Tenth Avenue North. When we unexpectedly went back to the US last summer; we bought the Tenth Avenue North CD. It quickly became a favorite (for both my husband and I) because many of the songs seemed to apply to our situations or give us the comfort we so desperately needed.

“Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains!

For the LORD comforts his people

and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.” Isaiah 49:13

It is good to know that the Lord comforts his children! I may not always feel His presence but I know that He is always there. I know that He cares for me even in the depths of sorrow. Praise God!

By Your Side–Tenth Avenue North

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don’t turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I’m not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I’ll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don’t fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world’s sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

(Chorus 2x)

Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I’ll never let you go

(Chorus 2x)
