In The Midst Of It All

This song by Yolanda Adams just touches my soul!!! (side note: when I was typing Yolanda's last name (Adams) I accidentally typed my last name (Allen)...I've done that before when writing about Ms. Adams lol)

This song is on her Mountain High Valley Low album. I was listening to it this morning on the way to work....if you don't know that I'm talking about here are the lyrics:

This is the truth:
I've come through many hard trials
Through temptations on every hand
Though Satan's tried to stop me
And to place my feet on sinking sand
Through the pain and all of my sorrows
Through tears and all of my fears
The Lord was there to keep me
For He's kept me in the midst of it all
Not because I've been so faithful
Not Because I've always obeyed
It's not because I trusted him
To be with me all of the way
But it's because He loves me so dearly
He was there to answer my call
There always to protect me
For He's kept me in the midst of it all
He's kept me when times were hard and rough
I thought I could do it on my own
But Jesus, He kept me
When I wanted to do wrong, He kept me
When I thought I was going to lose my mind, Jesus kept me
With His power, Jesus kept me
He didn't let me fall, Jesus kept me
Right there in the Midst of it All
I don't know what you're going through
But will you allow me to encourage you?
I know if He did it for me
He will do the same for you
I don't know nobody else
To call on in times of troubles
I tried my mother & I know she loves me
I tried my family & I know they love me
But nobody but Jesus
He held my hand
He brought me through
He wouldn't let me fall
So let me encourage you
Don't give up; Don't give in
I don't care what nobody else say
You can win with Jesus
With Jesus you can make it
Come on and understand
You have everything inside of you to take it!
~Yolanda Adams

I've definitely been kept in the midst of it all...Stay Blessed!!
