he’ll role you over the tide #inspirational
This morning I was reminded of one of my Mom’s favorite songs.
It seems that since her passing (March of this year), I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching and figuring out where I need to be right now. I think part of this is just due to the process of grief and the other part has to do with her not being here to protect me.
I know. I’m a grown person. Why do I need protection?
It’s something about a mother’s protection that is VERY different from a father’s. And while my Mom’s passing has brought a closer relationship between my Dad and I, it’s not the same. I used to be able to call my Mom up when I had a problem, frustrated or just needed prayer and she was always right there.
So now with her being gone– I have to find it for myself. And what better way than a spiritual connection?
I believe that we have souls and that our souls have a connection to God. I grew up in a Christian home and went to Church all of my life. In the past 10 years or so I have wandered off and did my own thing. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, but I haven’t always made the right choices.
I feel now that God is clearing paths and people out of my life for a reason.
Now I’m trying to find my way again.
So back to this morning. This song came to my mind when I started thinking about all the stress and issues that I have going on right now.
Chorus: I’ve never had a prayer that he could not answer
I’ve never shed a tear that he could not dry
When the waves of life are so hard that you can’t mount them
he’ll roll you over the tide.
VS 2. When the world is closing in and life becomes a burden
You want to run but there’s no place to hide
Just look up like Old Stephen to the right hand of the Father
and he’ll role you over the tide.
Life is hard, but having that reminder is crucial. It’s comforting knowing we can find joy in the dark times by finding the “Son.”
What are some things that get you through a dark time? Song, scripture, silly dance, art, etc?
I would love to hear what you have to say!
