Just What I Needed to Hear, Just When I Needed to Hear It.

Flipped on the Fish the other day. I'd heard this song before but never really stopped and payed attention to the lyrics. I was very thoughtful about a lot of things that day. Struggling with "worldly" worries. Feeling inadequate, Satan was on my back and it was getting the best of me. God always comes through to protect me when I need it most and this was no exception...thank you Father.

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

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

I just read your post. It was just what I needed to hear, just when I needed to hear it too.

Thanks sweet friend!
