Angel By Your Side ~

This mixed media canvas was inspired by a song I recently heard on the radio, and one of my newest favorites to listen to on my ipod: "Angel By Your Side" by Francesca Battistelli.


 I can't say that everything's okay
'Cuz I can see the tears you're crying
I can't promise to take the pain away
You can know I won't stop trying


I'll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I'll be the strength you can't provide on your own
'Cuz when you're down and out of time
And you've think you've lost the fight
Let me be the angel, the angel by your side
 I know it feels, like you're running out of faith
'Cuz it's so hard to keep believing
If I can bring a smile back to your face
For a moment, you'll forget all about it

 Cuz this won't be the last time you need a little hope
And I wanna be the first to let you know

"God's angels are marked by indescribable strength.  Paul says Christ " with his mighty angels" (2 Thessalonians 1:7).  From the word translated mighty, we have the English word dynamicAngels pack dynamic force.  {courtesy of my Max Lucado devotional 9/21/12)
The song lyrics continue:
I'll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I'll be the strength you can't provide on your own
'Cuz when you're down and out of time
And you've think you've lost the fight
Let me be the angel, the angel by your side
"Angels minister to God's people.  God has put his angels in charge of you to watch over you wherever you go"  Psalm 91:11 NCV

I hope you'll enjoy listening to the music and contemplating... angels...
Thank you Lord, for sending your Angels to be among us.  Amen.

And of course... the joy of joining Studio JRU is just one my favorite JOYS of a Friday... as well as fellowship with ChristianMommyBlogger.com-- good stuff!
