One of my former high school students introduced me to today’s featured artist. Tenth Avenue North is a contemporary Christian music band from West Palm Beach, Florida. Over the past two decades, this group ministered to Christians across the United States. In their song By Your Side, today’s video interviews a couple of people who were forced to start over in life following natural disasters.
He who [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! 3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence, Psalm 91:1-3.
One of the Psalmist explains how God can be by your side despite being invisible. This divine being has a calming presence to help you overcome extreme circumstances. Like the Footprints poem, God will carry you for extended periods, signaled by one set of footprints on the sand. As you watch today’s vdeo, may the words of By Your Side speak to your heart and encourage your soul.
