His Footprints in the Sand

God often uses music to minister to my soul and spirit. He deeply touches my heart with song and speaks to me through it. I’ve always taken to heart the Scripture that says He sings over His people.

Yahweh, your Elohim, is in your midst; The Masterful One, He shall save. He shall be elated over you with rejoicing; He shall renew you in His love; He shall exult over you with jubilant song.” (Zepheniah 3:17)

Time and time again, during the ups and downs of life, God has sung over me and to me. He has brought songs to speak to me and assure me of His presence and work in my life. Over the past week, He has sung to me three particular songs. I will share them in this and the following two posts.

With this first song He reminds me that He has been with me and has loved me always. Even when I ignored Him and went my own way, He was never far from me. He has seen every moment of my life—the great, the good, the bad, the ugly, and the painful to Him and to myself. He assures me none of it has been or will be a surprise to Him. And especially during this season of life, He assures me that He is with me, carrying me every step of the way—this way that He has chosen for me to walk at this time.

Christ is my Friend. He is THE Friend that “sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24). Through all weariness, sorrows, despairs, mistakes, unknowns, weaknesses, and overwhelming fears, He is there with us and He is willing to carry us. Will we relax ourselves into His arms and let Him?

You walked with me, footprints in the sand

And helped me understand where I'm going

You walked with me when I was all alone

With so much unknown along the way

Then I heard You say

I promise You, I'm always there

When your heart is filled with sorrow and despair

I'll carry you when you need a friend

You'll find my footprints in the sand

I see my life flash across the sky

So many times have I been so afraid

And just when I have thought I'd lost my way

You gave me strength to carry on

That’s when I heard You say

I promise you, I'm always there…

When I'm weary

Well, I know You've been there

And I can feel You when You say

I promise you, I'm always there…
