It was when I was almost dead,
that you taught me how to really live.
It was when I was on the ground,
that you gave me the strength to get up.
When I was just a flicker of a flame,
you blew life into my fire and made it roar.

And when I lay there crumpled and small,
you promised you'd be there through it all.

There's still a long way to go,
but I look back now on this road I've taken,
I see the two sets of footprints,
and I know your promise remains unbroken.



Isaiah 42:3 / A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth.

  4. So true; He will always be there with us, through joy and through trials. Amen.

  5. It's so true. I especially like the last stanza, I feel like I need to write it out and put it where I can see it often, and be reminded to look back and see how He has always kept his promises.
    That's an excellent photo too. :)
