Yesterday when I was painting and waiting on the paint to dry, I was listening to a song that I haven’t heard in a while. The song is called, “He is With You,” sung by the Tally Trio. It’s based on the verses in Ecclesiastes – Chapter 3:1-8, which says:
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace”
Are you in a season of life where you just don’t know what The Lord is doing? Or are you in season where everything is going your way and you’re having a good relationship with God? Whatever season of life you’re going through right now, may I encourage you in this truth, The Lord is with you, loving and guiding you to the next stage of your life.
I hope you can relate to this song in someway. I hope it will encourage and strengthen you in your faith in The Lord.
He is With You
There’s a time to live and a time to die,
There’s a time to laugh and a time to cry,
There’s a time for war and a time for peace,
There’s a hand to hold in the worst of these, in the worst of these…
He is with you when your faith is dead and you can’t even get out of bed,
Or your husband doesn’t love you anymore,
He is with you when your baby gone and your house is still and your heart is torn, crying God why’d you do that for?
He is with you
There’s a time yes and a time for no,
There’s a time to be angry and a time to let it go,
There’s a time to run and a time to face it,
There’s love to see you through all of this, through all of this…
He is with you in the conference room when the world is coming down on you,
Or your wife and kids don’t know you anymore,
He is with you in the ICU when the doctors don’t know what to do and it scares you to the core,
He is with you
(We may weep for a time but joy will come in the morning, the morning light…)
He is with you when your kids are grown and there’s too much space and you feel all alone, and you’re worried if you got it right or wrong
Yes, He is with you when you’ve given up on ever finding your true love, Someone who feels like home,
He is with you.
When nothing else is left and you take your final breath,
He is with you…He is with you!
