Angel By Your Side

I’ll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I’ll be the strength you can’t provide on your own

Recently, Francesca Battistelli's "Angel By Your Side" has been on my mind.

At first, I really loved it because it expresses the kind of love I want to give my significant other. I want him to view me as an angel supporting him through everything. Then life happened. God showed me how much more giving and loving I can be, and this song has come to mean so much more to me.

This past year, I've fallen into despair more times than I would like to count. I've endured nights where I've wanted to lash out at someone, something, anything, to take the pain away. I've doubted myself and prayed countless times for God's wisdom when I couldn't rely on my own understanding. I've prayed for strength to work through the process of forgiveness and let go of my anger so that I could reconcile myself with God. It has been a long, convoluted path, and it won't get any easier with time.
