I have a Zimbabwean friend who is living in the States right now and I love her heart and how she is sacrificing that desire to chase her own will and instead following the will of God in her life. It takes just as much strength and faith and obedience to leave her home and live in mine as it does for me to leave behind the USA and head to Zimbabwe! I love you Lisa Rouse, and I am so very proud of you!When chatting I mentioned a song that moves me and she said it's one of her favorites too.
I think that music speaks to our hearts so beautifully, it's a precious gift from God.
This is a song that has been kind of like a theme song to me during my time in Zimbabwe. it serves as a reminder that no matter how easy or how difficult each individual moment or day is, that I am here and I will be here in Zimbabwe for as long as God asks this of me...for no other reason than because He wants me to.
I hope it blesses you as much as it does me!
If You Want Me To by Ginny Owens
Here are the Lyrics:
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
Cause 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 walk 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'd never go alone
ya oh oh no
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
