Two At A Time

Today I have given my blog a new title and a new mission. It was inspired by the song “One Small Step” by Downhere. It is a song I have been listening to a lot lately and it definitely speaks to what I always need to remember: I’m not alone.

God never promised us that life would be easy. In fact, He warned us that it would be difficult. But what He does tell us is that He will always be with us. In Hebrews 13:5 (NLT), He says, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” This is my favorite of God’s promises, and it’s one that I don’t ever want to take for granted again. So my constant prayer has become, “Thank you, Lord, that you are here with me today.”

I find myself listening to this song almost daily, because the imagery is just so beautiful. And I find myself wondering how much I let the world know the One that helps me through each day. My new goal in everything I do is to let God be seen through me. “We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” (2 Cor. 4:7, NIV) My life, my words, my actions…should all give glory to God.

You can download the song here, and here are the lyrics:

Waking up with a cloud in your eyes
You shake it off and then realize
It’s a black letter day
You must face it anyway

Oh, I know it’s gonna be a hard day
And you won’t come out of this the same, no
But my love will be your strength for tonight
We’ll take it one small step two at a time
One small step

So I pick up this cross and wear it
No you will not have to solely bear it
I will suffer along with you
Be the heart of your point of view

Oh, I know it’s gonna be a hard day
And you won’t come out of this the same, no
But my love will be your strength for tonight
We’ll take it one small step two at a time
One small step

And if there’s nothing more I can do
Can I just stay here with you?
And in the silence we’ll find
Comfort divine

They say that time heals all wounds
But this scar will become a small part of you
There will come a day when I see your smile
It’ll be deeper and stronger and I’ll know why

Oh, I know it’s gonna be a hard day
And you won’t come out of this the same, no
But my love will be your strength for tonight
We’ll take it one small step two at a time
