When It Looks Like There's No Way Out

Sometimes it looks like things cannot get much worse. We may not be able to see how anything could possibly turn around. The world feels like it is crashing in on us from every side.

A man I know, I will call him Brad, hit rock bottom a little while ago. He lost his job of over ten years and with it his means to provide financially for his family. People all around his neighborhood were losing their employment and many lost their homes. Times were tough. Businesses were shutting down. Jobs were scarce and no one was hiring.

He remembers the day vividly. It happened to so many others in his firm. He was called in by the big boss. Two security guards were in the room waiting. Brad knew it was now his turn. His co-workers and friends were causalities that went before him. He was handed his pink slip and escorted out the door. Heartless, cold, and cruel, they would not respond to his pleas or questions. He was given no mercy, answers, or words of sympathy.

Brad's life would never be the same unless he was able to make a speedy transition into another job. But that did not happen for several years. Brad hit bottom. He was unemployed, his marriage was on the edge, his mood was unstable, and his children were acting out. He did not know where to turn or who could help him. To make the long story short, Brad turned to the only one he knew and believed could make a way for him where there seemed to be no way. He prayed and sought God fervently and daily. Today, he has his own business that is prospering and growing. For the first time in his life, he loves what he is doing. He and his wife have grown closer as they worked through the most difficult time in their lives and marriage. His children have developed a greater respect for him as they watched him persist and believe for a better tomorrow.

Brad's story is not unlike that of many others. Job losses, financial stress, marriage problems, health issues, addictions can all look like mountains that cannot be conquered. But what makes Brad's story encouraging and inspiring is that Brad did not lose hope. He persisted and believed things could and would get better. He did not give up. He turns to God and relies on Him as his source and strength. And that is what inspired the song I wrote, He Will Make a Way. I pray that it blesses you and encourages you to keep believing - no mountain is too insurmountable, no road is too difficult, no enemy is too strong, and no problem is too big that you cannot overcome. Believe that He will make a way for you and it may be better than you could ever have imagined. Don't give up. Keep believing and trusting!!

When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen: There will be something solid for you to stand upon, or, you will be taught how to fly. ~Partick Overton

When you face a mountain or hit a dead-end road and do not know what to do, let this faith-building song strengthen your faith and encourage you to turn to the God who knows what you need and will make a way for you.

This heartfelt, inspirational song of worship reminds us to turn to God and trust him to make a way for us when we may stuck, confused, afraid, discouraged, hopeless, or just do not know what to do. When we face obstacles, it may feel like we are facing a mountain with no way of ever making it to the other side. Or when we hit a dead end road, we may feel confused and frustrated because we do not know where we are going to go next. No matter how difficult things are or how unsure of our future looks, we can be assured that God is on our side. He knows our needs and he has a plan for our lives. No mountain is too big to block his purposes or provision and no dead-end road can end or thwart his perfect plans for our lives. He will make a way!!
