  • Alone Yet Not Alone



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWVyVMbSzM4

    I was originally directed to this video by a sister of mine on another forum. Love you sister.

    I'm alone, yet not alone.
    God's the light that will guide me home.
    With His love and tenderness,
    Leading through the wilderness,
    And wherever I may roam,
    I'm alone, yet not alone.

    I will not be bent in fear.
    He's the refuge I know is near.
    In His strength I find my own.
    By His faithful mercies shown.
    That so mighty is His shield
    All His love is now revealed.

    When my steps are lost.
    And desperate for a guide,
    I can feel his touch,
    A soothing presence by my side.

    Alone, yet not alone.
    Not forsaken when on my own.
    I can lean upon His arm,
    And be lifted up from harm.
    If I stumble, or if I'm thrown,
    I'm alone, yet not alone.

    When my steps are lost.
    And desperate for a guide,
    I can feel his touch,
    A soothing presence by my side.

    By my side!

    He has bound me with His love,
    Watchful angels look from above.
    Every evil can be braved,
    For I know I will be saved.
    Never frightened on my own,
    I'm alone, yet not alone.

    I'm alone, yet not alone.

    A haunting tune.
    It is unusual for lyrics with 15 personal pronouns to remain about depending on the Lord and not about the self. Joni Eareckson Tada has more reason than most to focus on herself but seems to maintain a focus on God. She could have been unknown and absent of a powerful witness if not for her accident. The Apostle Paul’s “thorn in the flesh” might not compare to her daily struggle. However, she proves the scripture – “My grace is sufficient.”

    2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV
    And he said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”
    Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    With every infirmity, tribulation, or trial believers ought to recognize that the miracle is a miracle because it is not only rare but impossible even though, “But with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). On the other hand, grace is always available and available to be multiplied.

    We debate faith as an absolute or as having quantity or quality. But it should not be so with grace. Grace has all three: The quality to save absolutely and the quantity need for any situation. From scripture it seems “grace” is available in various denominations or amounts which may be increased by multiplication.

    1 Peter 1:2 KJV
    Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

    2 Peter 1:2 KJV
    Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

    Apparently, the same applies to mercy, peace, and love.

    Jude 1:2 KJV
    Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

    Please tolerate the mini sermon. This post by Travis has set without a proper response for over three years. Just today did I observed this subtopic category “Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs” beneath the category “Virtuous and Lovely Things.”

    When there is powerful music confirming the nature of our God coupled with a powerful witness to His strength a pertinent sermon must follow.

    Should we not affirm that Joni Eareckson Tada has had her grace multiplied?
    And . . . and . . . how does that speak to us who still can walk in faith rather than role in a wheelchair?
