If You Want Me To

I am looking for information on a surgery for Nina called PERCS. I was trying to find blogs where I could see the before and after difference in children that have this surgery.

I cam across a blog that was playing a song. It caught my ear, and in light of my previous post, I thought it was timely.

If You Want Me To by Jenny Owen

The pathway is broken
And The signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet
so if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

ya oh oh no

So When the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley

If You want me to


  1. As one of your "airport witnesses," I am happy to say amen, sister! That has been one of my favorite songs for a long, long time.

    Thank you so much for your candor in your posts. There are many who need to hear the words and know that through it all God is still God and still in control. Especially when we're not... which seems to be most of the time. ;-)

  2. Love that song... And Ginny Owens is blind... the singer :) I've seen her sing it in her debut introductory concert in Orlando when Michael W. Smith introduced her and welcomed her to Rockettown Records. What an inspirational woman she is! Blessings to you!!

  3. Hi Ellen ~ Here is a link to a couple of blog posts re. the PERCS surgery. Hope it helps you find another parent who has experienced some of the same issues! Hugs ~ JO
