Sunday’s Extras: You Carried Me

No matter what happens in life, keep walking ... keep walking with the Lord.

Do you ever feel like just giving up?  You simply can’t go on?  If only someone could just carry you for a little while.  I think we’ve all felt that way at one time or another.

No matter what happens in life, keep walking ... keep walking with the Lord. 

I remember Joel Osteen put it something like this .... When things look the darkest, that’s when we are closest to our victory.  The enemy will throw everything at us because he knows we are on the verge of a breakthrough. 

That’s why we have to keep pushing forward … keep believing …  keep praying … and keep walking with the Lord.  Before you know it … He’s carrying you to victory.

That was the message in church today and then I heard Building 429’s song You Carried Me.  So I wanted to share it with you.

 

Here are the lyrics for my hearing impaired friends.

Building 429 – Your Carried me

I've been so busy
I missed the reasons
I missed Your love
and I nearly missed it all

Still You've held me
And You've healed me
You've given all
And it brought me to Your cross

And I stand only because
You've given me grace to walk
Only because

[CHORUS]
You carried me
You carried me
You carried me through it all
And I believe
Yes I believe
You'll carry me all the way home
Cause mercy covers all

I know the scripture
I've known the songs
I sang the words
from my hollowed heart

But You've spoken softly
Through the storm
I've heard Your voice
and I've felt the calm

I stand only because
You've given me faith to walk
Only because

[CHORUS]
You carried me
You carried me
You carried me through it all
And I believe
Yes I believe
You'll carry me all the way home

Lord I know that you love me
I'll never doubt it
I can't live without it
Your mercy has found me
I am astounded
I can't live without it, oooh

You carried me, You carried me
You carried me through it all...

You carried me
You carried me
And I believe
Yeah I believe
You'll carry me all the way home
Cause mercy covers all
Mercy covers all
Yeah, yeah
And I believe

It also reminds me of that timeless classic “Footprints in the Sand.”

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints;
other times there were one set of footprints.

 

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

 

So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”

 

The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”

My prayer this week is that you will have the strength to finish the race.

 

I also want to take time this Memorial Day holiday to say “Thank You” to all of our Veterans for their sacrifice to protect our freedoms.  And to those families that paid the ultimate sacrifice, words can never express our appreciation.  Freedom is never free; it is paid for with the blood of patriots and heroes. Thank You!

Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Psalms 143:8

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
