Have you ever heard the right song at just the right time? This is Robin's story about the song "By Your Side" by Tenth Avenue North:
"My mother was killed suddenly in a car wreck March 17, 2008. It was unexpected and because there was so much damage to her body we were not even allowed as a family to view her body. We had no answers, even with an autopsy, as to why or how the wreck happened.
When I lost my mom, my best friend, I was shaken to the core. I fell into a very deep depression and experienced such deep sorrow that I really did not know what to do with it or how to cope.
On a normal Sunday morning I was volunteered to go and get the donuts for Sunday School. I left our church and headed to the nearest donut shop about 10 minutes away. On the way a thought came into my mind. "You could just drive off of the rode and hit a tree and end it all right now. No more pain." I began to rationalize these thoughts by thinking that it was just me in the car. My 3 children were with my husband and wouldn't be harmed. I decided that death was easier than life and plotted my course for the next curve in the road.
Then the song by Tenth Avenue North "By Your Side" came on. "Why are you striving..why are you crying..let Me lift up your face...don't fight these hands that are holding you." Through K-LOVE God used these words to save me that day."
