I was standing in the kitchen on Sunday, turned on the radio, 106.7, snappin’ green beans getting them ready for a dinner of Pot Roast, carrots, green beans, and asparagus.
A song comes on the radio, and since I don’t listen to anything usually but 103.5 or CDs I have, I had never heard the song before.
I seem to be in a crossroads right now, I want to make a decision but I need to wait it out, I know that its not my plan but His and so I must wait. I hate waiting. I could walk away from something, because I have the potential to be pretty hurt or I have the potential to be happier than ever. Most people tell me to walk away. It’s not worth the risk. But it is. And so as I am listening to this song in my kitchen (prior to that, thinking of the millions of reasons why it wouldn’t work out), here comes this song… and one part of it rang out, “You can love someone with all your heart, for all the right reasons, and in a moment they can choose to walk awayLove ‘em anyway”.
I walked out into my living room, and my favorite quote from Pastor Jeremy was sitting on the coffee table, Phyllis had written it on a card – “without love, it’s just noise”.
So that was my lesson for the day. Love.
Anyway – Martina McBride
You can spend your whole life building something from nothing
One storm can come and blow it all awayBuild it anyway
You can chase a dream that seems so out of reach and you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway
Chorus: God is great, but sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray it doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway, I do it anyway
This world’s gone crazy and it’s hard to believe that tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway
You can love someone with all your heart, for all the right reasons, and in a moment they can choose to walk away
Love ‘em anyway
You can pour your soul out singing a song you believe in that tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway, sing it anyway
