Being a musician, I relate a lot of life to songs.￼ When I’m going through hard times or when I’m going through great times, there always seems to be a song that comes to mind. ￼
When my G.I. system started failing me – specifically my colon – and the sickness spread throughout my body (IBD aka Inflammatory Bowel Disease)￼, living was – at times – almost unbearable but this is one of the songs that came to my mind. ￼
It was indeed a dark time and I was in the thick of it. Singing (or squeaking this song with my energy level as it was) ministered to me in such a powerful way. ￼￼
Ginny‘s earlier versions of this song don’t appear to have the last verse that this version does. I’m glad she added it (at least I’m assuming that’s what happened…) Bottom line: I’m glad I heard it when I needed it. I’m singing it today as well.
Thank you Ginny Owens.
Thank You Lord for never leaving me; for your promise of deliverance.
