Some Memories Stay With You Forever...

I heard this song when I was only a little child and I have never forgotten it. I've used to dream about it and the thought of it brought to my mind a picture of a dark wood. I saw myself walking through it with one Light ahead of me to follow and footsteps on the path before me. I had only to walk in those footsteps and keep my eye on the Light and I would get safely through that fearful wood and see the glorious Light at the other end of forest. Recently I found the song on some old tape stacked away and I couldn't help but cry when I heard it again- it was just so beautiful!

"Sometimes the night was beautiful,
Something the sky was so far away
Sometimes it seemed to be so close,
You could touch it but your heart would break.
Sometimes the morning came too soon
Sometimes the day could be so hot-
There was so much work left to do
But so much you'd already done.

Chorus:
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God,You are my God,
And I will ever praise You
I will seek you in the morning
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
And step by step You lead me
And I will follow You all of my days
And step by step You lead me
And I will follow You all of my days.
And I will follow You all of my days
And I will follow You all of my days
And step by step You lead me
And I will follow You all of my days.

Sometimes I think of Abraham-
How one star he saw was lit for me.
He was a stranger in the land
And I am that no less than he.
And on this road to holiness,
Sometimes the climb can be so steep
I may falter in my step
But I'm never beyond Your reach.
Chorus:
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God,You are my God,
And I will ever praise You
I will seek you in the morning
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
And step by step You lead me
And I will follow You all of my days
And step by step You lead me
And I will follow You all of my days.
And I will follow You all of my days
And I will follow You all of my days
And step by step You lead me
And I will follow You all of my days...."

That is an incredibly beautiful song! I thought of it a few weeks ago at camp when we were talking about God's covenant with Abraham's decendents through Isaac and His covenant with us through Christ, and how the new covenant was another part of the old one, and how we are counted as Abraham's descendents. As I listened, I kept thinking, "...how one star he saw had been lit for me..." It is such an overwhelmingly beautiful image -- knowing that God has had a plan for us since long before we were born!

In Him,
Anya

I hope you're doing well!
