My Promise To You!   Sunday, September 15, 2002

Ok, so I'm cruising up I-81 and listening to my SCC cd. I hit the very 

last song of the cd which is "Carry You To Jesus" and I thought, 

"Wow, 

that's what I want to say to the teens that God has brought into my 

life". 


The song is about praying for others. And that's my promise to you. I 

want to uphold you in prayer this school year. 


***** 

I will not pretend to feel the pain you're going through 

I know I cannot comprehend the hurt you've known 

And I used to think it matered if I understood 

But now I just don't know 

***** 


As you have started school, mission field yet battlefield, I am here. I 

may not understand what you're going through, in school or elsewhere, 

but I can pray. 


***** 

Well, I'll admit sometimes I still wish I knew what to say 

And I keep looking for a way to fix it all 

But we know we're at the mercy of God's higher ways 

And our ways are so small 

***** 


Sometimes I just don't know what to say to some of the needs you face. 

I'd love to wave a magic wand and fix everything for you. But I can't 

so......... 


***** 

I will carry you to Jesus 

He is everything you need 

I will carry you to Jesus 

***** 


And I guess if I had written the song, (which I sure wish I had), these 

next few lines would be directly written to YOU! 


***** 

It's such a privilege for me to give this gift to you 

All I'd ever hope you'd give me in return 

Is to know that you'll be there to do the same for me 

When the tables turn 


And if you need to cry go on and I, 

I will cry along with you 

I'll give you what I have but still I know 

the best thing I can do 


I will carry you to Jesus 

He is everything you need 

I will carry you to Jesus
