I am so encouraged, -(and also have a heavy heart in a way)-, from this song by Steven, who has been through such affliction I will never even come close to knowing. He lost his little girl, when his teenage son backed over her with the family car a few years ago.
Thank you Lord for Steven my brother in Your grace and love and truth. Bless him Lord, and continue to fill him with your peace and presence:- And his wife and children. Amen.
"And when we can’t take another step
The father will pick us up and carry us in his arms
And even on the best days
He says to remember we’re not home yet
So don’t get too comfortable
Cause what you really are is just pilgrims passing through
Well I know that day is coming
And I know it’s gonna be here soon
I’ll keep on singing and believing
What all of my songs say
Cause our God has made a promise
And I know that everything he says it’s true
And he promised he would never ever leave us
He’s gonna lead us, He’ll head us home
Every single step of the long way home
So keep on we’re gonna make it
We’re just taking the long way home
Keep on we’re gonna make it
I know we’re gonna make it
It’s just a long way home"
