Song Breakdown: “You’re Not Alone”

I absolutely love performing this song for people because it seems to resonate the most with everyone. Whether you are the strongest of faith or feeling a bit weak, this song is a reminder of why we go through life. When watching the news, my heart breaks from all the tragedy. The world is literally broken and only Christ can hold it together. As I walk through hardships, I easily get caught in my own ways. I struggle with feeling that no one understands and no one cares. In Jr. High, I was this dorky 4-eyed acne girl who no one really wanted to be associated with. I clearly remember one of the popular guys being assigned to sit next to me and his comment was that he would prefer to sit next to anyone else but me. I didn’t understand how people could be this cruel. I was only 11 years old. I was blessed with an incredible family to love and support me, but I felt like school was a prison. I came home running to my room in tears because I felt so alone. My mom would come and comfort me and remind me that it does not matter what others think of me. The only opinion that mattered was what God thinks of me. While I know this to be true, I couldn’t help but feel hurt. Every time I tried to put these thoughts out of my head they just flooded back in. As I grew up and matured, I found myself in Christ. I realized that only God could understand what I was going through. Only God could help me feel surrounded by love. So many times we try to take life in our own hands, but this whole life is about honoring Christ. The Lord has put a plan in place for our life and we need to give our doubts, hurts, and worries to Him. This song is a constant reminder that God is always by our side. He will always be our guide and help us find our way. I hope and pray that this song will be that reminder to you and that you will find love through Christ.
