When You Walk Through the Water...
When I was younger, I would travel around with my Daddy and sing with him. We would go to little churches, big churches, different denominations...we would sing for homecomings, revivals, and for no reason at all. I have been blessed to sing at weddings and honored to sing at funerals. For some reason tonight, God laid this song on my heart...it is an older one...if you are familiar with the Gaithers, then you'll be familiar with Allison Durham Speer. I used to sing this song quite frequently. My Daddy used to tell me that this was the song where he could really see me...I think it's because I believed it! God had proven Himself over and over, and I would sing it with all of the authority I could muster. I'm listening to it right now with tears streaming down my face as I remember how much God has already brought me through and trusting He is going to do it again! This song is based on Isaiah 43:2, "When you walk through the waters, I will be with you; and when you walk through the rivers, they will not sweet over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." If you are hurting right now, please listen to this song...read the lyrics as you listen...and be reminded that He is the God who lifts you up!!!
