Gonna Stand By Me
I woke up this morning with the words to this song on my mind “Gonna Stand By Me.” I can just hear that song being sung over and over to myself even before I got up. Over the years I’ve witnessed those that I thought would always be there, well... they’re gone. It seems so hard to find someone you can trust to be there. Someone that no matter what life throws at you, will be there to help share the load you may be carrying. And oh how the weight of this world can press you down. It’s as though the sight around me is completely black in some places. BUT as I look around me and am about ready to give up I see something in the shadows. As I get a closer look... I can see Jesus standing right there looking back at me with eyes that tell me He was there all the time. That’s my word for this morning that you have a friend that sticks closer than a brother. And His name is Jesus Christ the Savior of the world. I hope you know Him today.
