We’ve all been there. We’ve all had that moment (or a few thousand moments) where we have no clue how we’re going to make it out of the situation we’re in. That moment when we have no clue where the money for the bills we have due is going to come from. That moment where we’ve hit rock bottom and don’t know how we’re going to get back up. That moment where we allow ourselves to ask the question, “God, do You even hear me?” The thing is, He always hears, He always provides, He’s always there. I mean, come on, didn’t He walk on the water??
The man who sings this song is an anointed worship leader, and is truly called by God. His name is Jeremiah Yocum from Redemption Road Church in Danville, KY and they are amazing precious people. I know you’ll enjoy hearing him sing this, but nothing beats hearing it in person. If you are ever in that area, be sure you stop by and worship with them. By the way, he did not write this song, but makes sure that the woman who wrote it receives credit. As he has said, many of times we hear the person sing the song, but never know what the person that wrote it went through. God truly blessed this woman when He gave her this song to write. I pray it blesses you all as much as it has me.
DIDN’T I WALK ON THE WATER
By Linda Gibson Johnson
As I kneel in the darkness in the middle of the night
I’m praying for assurance everything’s gonna be all right
Lord, I see another valley that’s out in front of me
I’m afraid I won’t be able and I’ll go down in the deep
But He said
I walked on the water, I calmed the raging sea
I spoke to the wind, It hushed and I gave you peace
Didn’t I run to your rescue
Didn’t I hear you when you call
I walked right beside you just so you wouldn’t fall
Didn’t I leave all of heaven just to die for your sins
I searched until I found you and I’d do it all again
He said, Do you remember just where I brought you from?
Just take a look behind you at how far you’ve come
And every time you asked me, didn’t I deliver you?
So why would you be thinking that I wouldn’t see you through?
Now she’s talking to her Father in a house that was once a home
She said my bills are coming due Lord and 6 days is not that long
She hears a voice so still and low that says I’ve moved like that before
I’ll do this little thing and I’ll give you so much more
Have you ever felt alone/small/afraid/etc.? I have. There have been many nights I have cried alone, wondering if God heard my prayers. When I listen to this song, I’m reminded that He hears, He sees, He knows. All of it. Every tear that I shed, He saw and bottled it. No matter what goes on, He knows and He’s there.
He Knows My Name
By Annie and Kelly McRae
He counts the stars one and all
He knows how much sand is on the shores
He sees every sparrow that falls
He made the mountains and the seas
He’s in control of everything, of all creatures great and small
And He knows my name
Every step that I take
Every move that I make
Every tear that I cry
He knows my name
When I’m overwhelmed by the pain
And can’t see the light of day
I know I’ll be just fine
‘Cause He knows my name
I don’t know what tomorrow will bring
I can’t tell you what’s in store
I don’t know a lot of things
I don’t have all the answers to the questions of life
But I know in whom I have believed
He knew who I was when He carried the cross
He knew that I would fail Him but He took the loss
