I Love How He Speaks To Me

The other day, I was talking to a friend about what's going on in her life. She's in the midst of turmoil and needs to make wise choices. She doesn't know what to do and I didn't have any words of wisdom to give her.

In fact, there were 4 people on my heart that day. In my conversation with my friend, I cried out, in desperation, for words of wisdom from the Lord. About twenty minutes later, I heard this song for the first time: (You can hear it at http://www.myspace.com/sidewalkprophets )

The Words I Would Say

It's 3 in the morning and I'm still awake
So I picked up a pen and a page
And I started writing just what I'd say
If we were face to face
I'd tell you just what you mean to me
Tell you these simple truths

Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
You're gonna do great things, I already know
God's got his hand on you
So don't live life in fear
Forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

Last time we spoke you said you were hurting
And I felt your pain in my heart
I want to tell you that I keep on praying
Love will find you where you are
I know 'cause I've already been there
So please hear these simple truths

Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
You're gonna do great things, I already know
God's got his hand on you
So don't live life in fear
Forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say
From one simple life to another
I will say
Come find peace in the Father

Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
You're gonna do great things, I already know
God's got his hand on you
So don't live life in fear
Forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
Thank God for each day
His love will find a way
These are the words I would say


I broke into sobs. It's nearly word for word what I pray for one friend and the words my other friends desperately needed to hear. It was truly a holy moment and a word from the Lord. I LOVE that I serve a God who cares enough to answer my cries of desperation with His perfect love.

May this song encourage you as it has encouraged me.
