...If You Want Me to...

Ginny Owens is a young Christian singer. She is blind and I have often wondered how hard it would be knowing you would never see your husband as you walk down the aisle, your child take his first step, or many of the other precious things in life. I'm still learning seeing clearly does not always come through human eyes. Sometimes, it comes from insight and understanding that can only be seen through the Holy Spirit's vision. This is one of my favorite songsby Ginny and one that always reminded me of my friend and has been playing around in my head today... I thought I'd share...

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'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 valleyIf You want me to

When I cross over Jordan,
I'm gonna sing, gonna shout
I'm gonna look into Your eyes and see
You never let me down

So take me on the pathway that will lead me home to You
And I will walk through the valley If You want me to
