if you want me to

By: Ginny Owens

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

Cuz 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’ll 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

Sometimes the words of a song can best express what I am feeling. The thing is it's not just the lyrics of this song that I love but the melody and the way it is sung. This is one of my favorite songs. It's slow and contemplative and the words are what I feel. So if you've never heard it, check it out. I realize it's not for everyone but it really expresses what I'm feeling right now. And I thought maybe they could bring some comfort and hope to Kristin and Cory. You are in my prayers. Ann was lucky to have such great parents who truly loved her!
