By Your Side ~ Tenth Avenue North YouTube video

I share music videos and my thoughts on them because I've been affected by music and the words since I've been a Christian. I don't know how you feel about me blogging about the videos, but I hope you guys like them.

My newest video is from Tenth Avenue North. They are an amazing new band on the Christian music scene. These young guys have powerful messages in their songs. The song I'm going to share today is By Your Side. Their other popular song is Love is Here.

T.A.N. doesn't have an official video on YouTube for this song, but I love the fact that people create their own. I appreciate that the put the words up so we can read along.

Seriously, about this song, it sings what we're all going through. We're all striving for "stuff" as if God isn't enough. Which of us doesn't try to earn love? Can you imagine when we're in the trenches, Jesus coming up to us and lifting up our chins to look us in the eye. How much love would we see there? He's everything, all we'll ever need.

Why do we fight those hands that hold us? I think many times we don't realized we've shaken His grasp until we're in the depths of our sin. We just don't always know how to stay in those precious arms of love.

I am so thankful that He loves us, even when we've fallen. He'll never let us go. We've given our lives to Him and He will go to the ends of the earth for each one of us. Thank you Jesus for your nail scarred hands, your pierced and broken body that took on not just my sin but the sins of the entire world!

I did a post on this song a while back because it too touched me so deeply. Those guys are wonderful and very much in love with our Savior.

Blessings!

This is one of the most profound songs I have heard in a long time and I am thankful for the work of TAN in sharing it with us. It reminds me of how long I struggled before I could accept that I was worthy of God's grace. I plan to close my women's session at our encounter weekend with this song and am praying that others will understand the gift of His grace and let go of their personal struggles to be enough. Awesome work!
