music monday// a way to see in the dark

this song is one of the many prayers i sing to God. i don't have this brutiful life all figured out at all, but He's the only thing that makes sense to me. typically, i sing it more often when my trust issues with Him rear up their heads. isn't it amazing how songwriters and creative arts folk just know how to put words to how we feel deep inside?!

a way to see in the dark~ jason gray
here i am begging for certainty again. but simple trust is what You're asking me to give. 
if i am saved, You tell me it will not be by sight. so when i pray, i close my eyes, i close my eyes.

i'll reach for Your hand in the night, when the shadows swallow the light
cause i'm giving up, giving in
once again a childlike faith is my only way to see in the dark.

the question mark hung at the end of every fear is answered by the promise that You are with me here.
and that's all i've got when the lights go out and i lose my way.
so i'll close my eyes. i won't be afraid, i won't be afraid.

if every star falls and the sun fails to rise, still in my blindness i'll see.
if You are my help, my hope and my vision, one step at a time You will lead.


"for we live by faith, not by sight." 2 corinthians 5:7

"now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. this is what the ancients were commended for." hebrews 11:1-2

"when Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, 'I am the light of the world. whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'" john 8:12

"then Jesus told him [doubting thomas], 'because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.'" john 20:29

"at that time, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, 'who, then is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?' He called a little child to Him, and placed the child among them. and He said: 'truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. and whoever welcomes one such child in My name welcomes Me." matthew 18:1-5
