Walking in the dark

Years ago, when I was a new believer, I had my faith challenged. I was presented with the reality that I could either trust that God was Who He said He was or dismiss His abilities to help me walk through a devastating season.

During the same time I started listening to a Christian singer named Wayne Watson. Many of his songs resonated with my difficult season, but none more than Walk in the Dark. The song embodied all of my fear and also my desire to still walk with God. I hope you are encouraged today by these same words.

Walk in the Dark by Wayne Watson

Where are you taking me-why are we turning here
this road is strange to me-this path is not so clear
must be the place where my doubt turns to faith
where I close my eyes and take your hand

CHORUS:
I’d rather walk in the dark with Jesus
Than walk in the light on my own
I’d rather go through the valley of the shadow with him
Than to dance on the mountains alone
I’d rather follow wherever he leads me
Than to go where none before me have gone
I’d rather walk in the dark with Jesus
Than to walk in the light of my own

I’ve made some plans you know-mapped out a strategy
Somebody tell me where did the seasons go-have you forgotten me
I’ve heard the darkest hour is just before dawn
And wherever you are the sun will shine

CHORUS

There will be shadows-but I won’t be shaken
‘Cause you’ve never forsaken a vow
You’ve never failed me before this I know
And, Jesus, you won’t fail me now

CHORUS
