If You Want Me To

Song by Ginny Owens
She’s a singer/songwriter who also plays the piano and also happens to be completely blind. She says that her music comes from pages in her journal. Today it felt like it came out of my own journal. This song is old. We’ve had it for a long time, but it came alive again today when I was taking care of Miles who happened to look like this:

If You Want Me To
The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I don’t know the reason why you brought me here
But just because you love me the way that you
I’m going to walk through the valley
If you want me to

Cause I’m not who I was when I took my first step
And I’m clinging to the promise you’re not through with me yet
So if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If you want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that’s not my home
But you never said it would be easy
You only said I’d never go alone

So when the whole world turns against me
And I’m all by myself
And I can’t hear you answer my cries for help
I’ll remember the suffering your love put you through
And I will go through the valley if you want me to

On the live version she sings one last verse:

When I cross over Jordan i' m gonna sing, I'm gonna shout. I'm gonna look into your eyes and see you never let me down. So take me on the pathway that leads me home to you. And I will walk through the valley if you want me to.

I love you
