"On the road marked with suffering"

When I headed to Upland from Carmel yesterday morning, this song was on the radio. It seemed all too appropriate.
Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

Yeah, that's a great song. We sang that in chapel yesterday morning. It was great to hear all the Taylor Students singing that out, raising their hands, and singing the chorus louder each time.

We also sang It Is Well With My Soul, which has a great story.

Another great song we sang was, In Christ Alone... especially the last verse that says:

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

These songs have new meaning and value to everyone. It's wonderful to be a Christian and be able to sing these kinds of things together.

I totally agree with you, Melissa. It makes me appreciate the community at Taylor. (I know! You never thought I would say that! :-p)
