If You Want Me To Lyrics - Ginny Owens
Review The Song (36)
The pathway is broken and the signs are unclear
And I don't know the reasons 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 that bring me closer to You
Then I will go through the fire if you want me to.
And it may not be the way I would've 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.
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 that your love put you through
And I will go through the valley if you want me to.

Timeless Song. | Reviewer: Rottok | 8/9/13
There is something about the melody and the lyrics of this song that speaks and reaches to the deepest depths of the soul. I stumbled upon this song back in '05 and it drove me to tears. I just heard it again and put it on repeat mode. This song got through law school. I had trouble paying fees and had to defer my studies twice. Through all the struggles I kept being encouraged that God was not through with me yet. God led me through ways that I wouldn't have chosen. But it was for my good. Looking back, I am very greatful that His plans are perfect for He brought out the best in me. Thank you Ginny.

My greatest inspiration | Reviewer: susann | 11/27/11
This beautiful song has been my inspiration through many trials. God always stands by His word. Now I am sending it to my sister who is going through something she doesn't believe she can endure, though she has already been through so very much. I know she will see the light at the end of the tunnel when she is reminded through these verses just how much we are loved by our Father in Heaven!
God is on our side | Reviewer: Music_is_Life | 9/28/11
This song makes me cry almost every time I hear it. Last spring, I was told that my kyphosis and skuliosis had gotten a lot worse in a short period of time. I would probably need surgery and wouldn't be able to play basketball, which I play yearround, for several months. My second cousin sent me this song, as well as JJ Heller's "Your Hands," saying that she often finds strength in them. Thanks be to God for her, because this song really has helped me through. I pray to God to get me through this, but I now know that this is where I need to be and that He is holding my hand through all of it.

How can I do less? | Reviewer: Darlene | 3/14/11
The phrase "I can't hear You answer my cries for help; I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through". Compared to the suffering Jesus endured through His Love for us, what I face is nothing. How can I do less than give him all of my heart? He is ALL I need and he has promised to go with me? Hallelujah!!! I will continue to go through the fire if He wants me to!
AWESOME song! | Reviewer: Claire | 9/15/10
Today so many messages are about prosperity and expecting God to deliver you out of trials. There is no longer an emphasis on waiting and trusting that God has you where He wants you. Think of Job and all he went through. He did not say, "God I expect You to get me out of this". He said, "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord". I love that this song is about trusting and being FAITHFUl through th hard times, trusting that God is in control and we are here to serve Him, not the other way around. AWESOME song!
Sweet submision... | Reviewer: Carrie Pacheco | 8/19/10
When I first heard this song, I was in the worst spirtiual battle of my life, my son was involved with drugs, moved out-living on the street in November, and my marriage worse than ever. This song reminded me, it is not for our good, but for His glory, and my total reliance on His spiritual provisions for me !.
Not my will but your's lord | Reviewer: Erick | 7/19/10

teen mom | Reviewer: Amber | 5/26/10
This song is such an inspiration & helps me remember that I have to trust in God's word & lean not on my own understanding. I am 18 and have a 7 1/2 month old & am married so my life is very stressful but with the help of songs like this I remember I don't have to carry the burden.
Panic Attacks/severe anxiety | Reviewer: milly | 4/6/10
For a moment now ihave been goin through severe anxiety, i thought i was goin to die or loose my mind, but now i know that's a lie from the enemy and have learned to stand on the word of God, this has been my Valley but God is bigger than our problems, my Valley has been my refining fire cause truly am not who i used to be. i love this song such an encouragement, above all i Love Jesus he promised he will never leave us nor Forsake us He has been there every step of the way.
DEPRESSION | Reviewer: KAREN | 3/16/10
I SUFFER FROM A D/O CALLED BIPOLAR. ONE DAY, I WAS SO DEPRESSED, I HEARD THIS SONG AND I KNEW I HAD TO KEEP GOING TO HIS WORD. MY HUSBAND IS IN PRISON, SO I WENT TO A PLACE CALLED "KAIROS OUTSIDE". LATER, I JOINED A TEAM, GAVE A SPEECH AND USED THIS SONG AS MY OPENER. THE SPEECH WAS ABOUT ANGER TOWARD A LOVED ONE. I CRIED ALL THE WAY THRU IT, BUT THE SONG, THE LOVING SUPPORT AND THE "KNOWINGNESS" OF WHAT HE WANTED ME TO DO HAD OVERWHELMED ME AND I KNEW I MUST CONTINUE TO LIVE FOR HIM, EVEN IF I FELT ALL ALONE AND THE WHOLE WORLD WAS AGAINST ME, FOR I HAD FELT IT MANY TIMES W/MY HUSBAND BEING INCARCERATED. I WANTED OTHERS TO KNOW THE WORLD WASN'T AGAINST THEM, GOD WAS FOR THEM AND THEIR LOVED ONES.
Faith is on my side | Reviewer: Deanna | 8/27/09
Life isn't easy, but if you have faith in yourself you can handle anything. I just started college, I thought I wasn't going to make it this far but look at me now. All my struggles with life have caused me to be stronger and I can now handle anything.
God is Amazing | Reviewer: val | 7/14/09
I will never forget the first time I heard this song. It truly ministered to me. I was pulling into the church's parking lot and this song brought tears to my eyes. It also happens to be the week that I was waiting on some test results for my nine year old son. My son had a lump on his right hip and things looked very grim. He keep complaining of pain and ask me why god wasn't healing him. But thanks be to God the results came back and my son is pain free and lump free. God is truly amazing.
abusive marriage | Reviewer: janet | 7/5/09
I just came out of a very phyically abusive marriage and my whole world literally did turn against me. my family and my church family. My husband was a leader in our church and no one could believe that he would ever do something like that.... I heard this songs and I brought me to tears. It gives me so much hope.
I'm walked through the fire and I praise God that he loves me the way that he does.
