If you want me to.

I've been trying to put together a few songs to sing in church. I came across a few recently that were favorites of Dan and have decided I'm not quite ready to do those since I can't get halfway through them just sitting here in my chair with Francis listening to me.

Here are the lyrics to a song by Ginny Owens Danny wanted me to sing when it was determined that he wouldn't return to the pulpit. Over the last few months, I've been able to look back at things that have happened and realize that God was doing some things. I think maybe this song was not for Danny, but for me all along.

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 go 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

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
