Alone Yet Not Alone

One of my favorite songs to listen to this winter has been "Alone Yet Not Alone." It is featured in a movie that will be coming out this summer. You can learn more about the movie at

"Alone Yet Not Alone" is sung by Joni Eareckson Tada, and she did a beautiful job! Because she is a quadriplegic her lung capacity is limited. In the video you will see her husband, Ken, pressing on her diaphragm to help her hit the high notes. What a great team those two make!

I have spent a lot of time alone in recent months as I rest and recover from various setbacks. But I am not truly alone. God is always by my side, and this song is a beautiful reminder of that.

(If you are reading this in an email, please click over to the blog to see the video.)
I'm alone, yet not alone.
God's the light that will guide me home.
With His love and tenderness,
Leading through the wilderness,
And wherever I may roam,
I'm alone, yet not alone. 
I will not be bent in fear.
He's the refuge I know is near.
In His strength I find my own.
By His faithful mercies shown.
That so mighty is His shield
All His love is now revealed. 
When my steps are lost.
And desperate for a guide,
I can feel his touch,
A soothing presence by my side. 
Alone, yet not alone.
Not forsaken when on my own.
I can lean upon His arm,
And be lifted up from harm.
If I stumble, or if I'm thrown,
I'm alone, yet not alone. 
When my steps are lost.
And desperate for a guide,
I can feel his touch,
A soothing presence by my side. 
By my side! 
He has bound me with His love,
Watchful angels look from above.
Every evil can be braved,
For I know I will be saved.
Never frightened on my own,
I'm alone, yet not alone.
I'm alone, yet not alone.
Composer: Bruce Broughton
Lyricist: Dennis Spiege

How do you manage when people say if you just exercised your faith you would be well. I have been living with dysautonomia for 10 years and have been thru a lot physically with this illness. Yet I find that no matter how hard it is, God is always bigger than the hardest symptoms I go thru. He does not take dysautonomia away, but he helps me physically, emotionally, spiritually to live thru the hardest days. I get frustrated sometimes with people who mean well and want to encourage me. They have no idea how much I depend and trust in God to help me in the hard days and how much God has revealed his faithfulness to me, to my family. As I am sure God has shown you his steadfastness in watching over you and your family.

I am grateful for God's sustaining grace n my weakness, how do you explain to some, who mean well that God, that God ls faithful in sickness and in health.

That's a good song. Thanks for sharing, Tonya! I had never heard it before. I have now added it to my "One Day at a Time" playlist on YouTube. :)
