You never said it would be easy. You only said, I'd never go alone.

This song by Ginny Owens, which seems to have become my anthem over the years... is once again the most appropriate "soundtrack" for my life right now. Read the lyrics, and let them renew your soul. Click here to hear the song while you read the lyrics.

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 walk 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'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

Praying for you, Claire.
