by your side

Ok, so I'm using Elizabeth's idea of making a song my post but I heard this song on the way home and actually took the time to listen to the lyrics. It was at the part where it says, "why are you searching as if I'm not enough?" that God had my attention and I couldn't help the conviction that washed over me. Am I allowing God to be enough or am I wanting other things to help satisfy me? Ouch.

The song is called "By Your Side" by Tenth Avenue North.

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I'll never let you go
