Watch Over Me by Aaron Shust

I was lonely
You came waltzing over to me
And Your eyes they saw right through me
And You heard each one of my cries for help
And You came to rescue me

I was broken
Every prayer that I had spoken
Reached Your ears and all my tears weren’t cried in vain
You carried all my pain
And put me back together again

You watch over me in the darkest valleys
You watch over me when the night seems long
You help me to see the way before me
You watch over me; You watch over me

Always faithful
To be leading, at this moment
Interceding for Your children
Though I’ve wandered astray from Your infinite ways
You’ve never left me alone -[to chorus]

Take my frozen heart; awaken me
Never once have You forsaken me

Even though I walk through this shadow of death
You will guide and defend me
You’ll guard and protect me
Even though I walk through this shadow of death
You will lead me home

As my new friend, Tina, reminded me we are never ALONE! What a good reminder today... when my heart is broken and aches over all the pain around me... not just mine or my family's but everywhere I look. If it wasn't for the knowledge that God truly was with us and is leading us home there would be no hope. Today my thankfulness is wrapped up in that single thought.

I just don't know how people can live without that hope. I can't wrap my mind around it.
Beautiful song! Blessings to you today and prayers.

Can you email me? If you go to my profile, there is a place to email me. I didn't find one on yours.
