My Heartache Healer is Also Yours

I have never done this, but I am stealing a video that Patty from Pitterle Postings posted just today. I know some of you read both of ours so I apologize. But I wanted to make sure everyone gets to see it because it is so special with an important message. I've watched it 4 times today and cried every time. I recently found a Christian radio station that I listen to sometimes in the car. It is nice to be able to hear new songs that testify of Jesus. This one is paired with beautiful pictures. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks, Patty! Please forgive me for stealing.

Nichole Nordeman - I Am

Pencil marks on a wall,
I wasn't always this tall.
You scattered some monsters from beneath my bed.
You watched my team win.
You watched my team lose.
You watched when my bicycle went down again.

And When I was weak unable to speak,
still I could call You by name,
and I said Elbow healer, Superhero,
come if You can, and You said I Am

Only 16, life is so mean, what kind of curfew is at ten PM
You saw my mistakes, You watched my heart break
Heard when I swore I'd never love again

When I was weak, unable to speak,
still I could call You by name,
and I said Heartache Healer, Secret-keeper,
be my Best Friend and You said I Am.

You saw me wear white, by pale candlelight,
I said forever to what lies ahead
two kids and a dream, with kids that can scream
too much it might seem when it's two Am.

When I am weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name-
Oh Shepherd, Savior, Pasture-maker,
hold on to my hand, and You say I am.

The winds of change,
And circumstance blow in and all around
us so we find a foothold that's familiar,
And bless the moments that we feel You nearer.
Life had begun, I was woven and spun,
You let the angels dance around the throne. Who can say when,
But they'll dance again, when I am free and finally headed home.

I will be weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name-
Creator, Maker, Life-sustainer,
Comforter, Healer, My Redeemer,
Lord and King, Beginning and
the End, I Am, yes, I Am.


  1. That was beautiful. I'm sure your friend won't mind at all that you shared it on your blog, too. :)

  2. Nicole Nordeman is great, isn't she? Also, is the radio station KLOVE? I've been listening to it pretty often. I used to listen to Z88.3 in Orlando, and it was a lot like KLOVE. I still listen on the computer to Z88.3.

  3. I hadn't heard of KLOVE before. I'll have to listen to it. The one I've been listening to is 1120 AM. Thanks for sharing the others with me.

  4. Valerie, you know I never mind when you borrow from me. I consider it the highest compliment that a friend can give! I hope all your friends love it as much as we do. It is a message that needs to be shared.

  5. Just lovely! I love to listen to inspirational music. I love these lyrics. Thanks for sharing
