You Don’t Have to Take The Broken Road…

TURN AROUND by Matt Maher

Track art

Young man on the side of the road
Lost and beat up with nowhere to go
Smells like a hangover from days ago
He does what he can to survive

Single mom with a dead end job
Ninety hour week just to keep what she’s got
With the bills that add up and now she’s caught
She does what she can to survive

Well, let me say
That love won’t take away the pain
But don’t be afraid
‘Cause it will never walk away

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around

Some turn to a bottle
Some turn to a drug
Some turn to another’s arms
But it seems like it’s never enough

Well I won’t say, that you will never fail again
But there is grace
To wash away your every sin

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around

No one listens to you anymore
And your heart has broken down
You don’t need to move
Love has come to you
All you gotta do is turn around
All you gotta do is turn around
Turn around

You don’t have to take the broken road
You can turn around and come back home

You don’t have to take the broken road
You can turn around and come back home

You don’t have to take the broken road
You can turn around and come back home

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around

No one listens to you anymore
And your heart has broken down
You don’t need to move
Love has come to you
All you gotta do is turn around
All you gotta do is turn around

And to All The Bad Thoughts…

And to All The Bad Thoughts...

WOW! That’s what I said when I saw this! Ha Ha! This one packs a powerful punch! God bless you guys today, and remember NO MATTER WHAT you are going through, God is still there. Don’t lose faith. In the midst of the storm, call upon Him, make your needs known via prayer aloud to Him through Christ. Also, very importantly, always lets give our Maker thanks in the storms of life. He never, ever leaves us! The enemy tries to make us think that and would love for us to believe it…but GOD is our True best friend. He’s the only one there when no one else can be, and you’re all alone, the One that will be there forever until we pass on.

Yesterday, I shed many tears, and doubt began to creep into my fragile, vulnerable mind. My spirit ached as I sat alone in our dark bedroom last night. My husband was gone with his brother to the store. My dad had been sick yesterday, and deals with a rough life daily anyway without legs…so many other family issues, like the fact that mom, dad, my sister and I are all four separated in different places. This weighed on my mind as well. It was just everything! All of the brokenness in my life, the pain that this winter brought, and all the tears…

So I did the best thing that anybody could ever do. I sent up a prayer. I told God that I was sorry for doubting Him, and that I just needed Him to breathe on my life a healing that only He could provide, and to open the Heavens and let blessings of peace, love, restoration, and happiness rain down on my life, my family, and my marriage. I believe He will come through! He has never failed me, and has even spared my life more than just once.

Don’t ever give up on our God…He never gives up on us. 🙂

Blessing to you all today!
