Bless the Broken Road

Psalm 84:5 - Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

I know this song wasn't written about Jesus, but wow...I never thought about how amazing this song describes the pilgrimage on which we travel to Him. check OUT these lyrics! This song will never be the same for me...

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to You

Every long lost dream led me to where You are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into Your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to You

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to You
But You just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Now I'm just rollin' home into my Lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road that led me straight to You

Amazing lyrics! But you know what really ruined this for me? Was watching the video...lead singer's hair is OUT ... OF ... CONTROL! Its like the equivalent of a balding man combing over the few whisps of hair he has left! Ugh!
