Find Your River #FridayReflections

There are days when it’s so easy to give up hope. Days when you feel so alone. Dark times when you think that the only way out is death. Today I want to share a song with you and urge you to find your river – the place you go to when you are down.

Find Your River

Whenever we have dark times in our lives, whether we suffer from depression, or addiction, or anxiety, or even just having a really bad day, the worst is that it feels like we are suffering alone. In a world of billions connected by social media, far too many people feel this way and while the conversation is getting better, it’s not talked about nearly enough. I hope this song and video are a reminder that it’s the simple steps, the smallest gestures, that can pull us back to the light. It’s those things for me. Find your “river.” – Josh Groban in People

 

The lyrics of River

Some days I can’t say why I’m feeling lonely
Some days I am too proud to ask for help
And I stumble through the noise
Trying to find some peace
A stranger in the crowd, I lose myself
So, I walk down to the river
Where the troubles, they can’t find me
Let the waters there remind me
The sun will be there when we wake
I walk down to the river
Though I might not understand it
It’s not always as we planned it
But we grow stronger when we break
So, I walk down to the river
I walk down to the river
This raging world can get so overwhelming
Looking for a meaning when it won’t make sense
In my head its getting loud
Like I can’t outrun this cloud
No matter where I go well there I am
So, I walk down to the river
Where the troubles, they can’t find me
Let the waters there remind me
The sun will be there when we wake
I walk down to the river
Though I might not understand it
It’s not always as we planned it
But we grow stronger when we break
So, I walk down to the river
I walk down to the river
Let the calm pull me under
Far beyond the thunder
Tell me it will all be okay
Let the waves take all my worries
Conquer them with fury
Give me shelter be my escape
I walk down to the river
Where the troubles, they can’t find me
Let the waters there remind me
The sun will be there when we wake
I walk down to the river
Though I might not understand it
It’s not always as we planned it
But we grow stronger when we break
So, I walk down to the river
I walk down to the river
I walk down to the river
I walk down to the river
To the river
To the river
I walk down oh, oh, oh
To the river oh, oh, oh
