Rich Mullins "If I Stand"

These words from this song have carried me through many days of grief, and I pray they'll mean a lot to you, too. Rest well this weekend.


  1. This was part of my soundtrack during my darkest days, too.

    "So if I stand let me stand on the promise
    That you will pull me through
    And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
    That first brought me to You
    And if I sing let me sing for the joy
    That has born in me these songs
    And if I weep let it be as a man
    Who is longing for his home"

    Hits the nail on the head.

  2. Those last two lines always said it for me, Joannah. Our citizenship is in heaven, and I long for it too. Thanks for sharing.

  3. i am all alone no children and i havent found any joy in life since bill died in 2008 how do u do it i dont have anyone and since im ill does anything matter

  4. Dear anonymous,
    It might seem like nothing matters, but the truth is---YOU matter. Widowhood is a difficult challenge and the sadness and loneliness knock the wind out of us all. I hope you can join a Lifeboat group on Facebook, or find a GriefShare group in your area. They are little steps, but they bring pretty big turnarounds after a while. We're not meant to do this alone and God has some good people for you to meet. I'll be praying for you and I hope to hear from you again.
