My father had passed away back in December 8, 2007. But he was ill for a long time prior to his death. I was browsing my journal when I came across one of the songs I had composed on December 16, 2005. At that time, my father was in a hospital, his breathing aided by a ventilator. With the many oceans between us, all I could do was pray for him and made my love known by calling him everyday. Being a nurse, it was a very tough trial for me not to be able to care physically for my father. But knowing how faithful the Lord is with His love and promises, I knew then, we would all be okay, especially my father. Thank You Lord for this song that constantly serves as a reminder of Your faithful love:
Help Me Get Through
We may never understand
Every trial that happens in this lifetime
Lord, You're always there that I know
Giving us strength when giving up is all I want to do
Oh Lord, please be there for me
Help me get up whenever I fall
Oh Lord, draw me near to You
With this pain, help me get through
My hope comes from knowing You
In my dark moment, You are the Light that shines on me
Lord, You take away all my fears
Giving me the courage to fight all my battles
