Monday’s Mourning Ministry - By Your Side

Monday’s Mourning Ministry

Searching the Bible on Behalf of us Bereaved Parents

as we Grieve Our Great Loss…

By Your Side

– Tenth Avenue North

Why are you striving these days

Why are you trying to earn grace

Why are you crying

Let me lift up your face

Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for love

Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough

To where will you go child

Tell me where will you run

To where will you run

And I'll be by your side

Wherever you fall

In the dead of night

Whenever you call

And please don't fight

These hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and My side

They swallowed the grave on that night

When I drank the world's sin

So I could carry you in

And give you life

I want to give you life

(Chorus 2x)

Cause I, I love you

I want you to know

That I, I love you

I'll never let you go

(Chorus 2x)


How do I survive? How do I face each day?

How do I go on knowing I’ll never see my baby girl again this side of Heaven?

The words of this song tell me why – He is by my side, and He’ll never let me go. He loved me enough… He loved my baby girl enough… to drink the world’s sin so He could carry me in…so He could carry her in…to Heaven that night.

She is safe; my baby girl is safe. My baby girl that I love with all my heart…is safe with Jesus, is safe in His arms. He holds her close to His heart; He carries His lamb. He took her to safety.

He was there that night, with her, with her when I couldn’t be… He grabbed her up in His arms…and took her to safety…

Safety forevermore…from the Enemy, the Enemy who was out to destroy her life… And he did; the Enemy did destroy her life that night…but not forever. The Son of God died so that couldn’t happen. He put Life inside her…that wouldn’t die…that would never die…but would live eternally…By His Side.

And that is why I can live…that is why I can go on…that is why I can have peace…in the midst of my pain…because I know…He Is By Her Side, and…He Is By My Side.

And we are both…Alive in Him. Her spirit is alive. Alive. Alive in Him.

She is safe. She is alive.

She is with Him. She is with me.

And we are both…

By His Side!


11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart…

Isaiah 40:11

1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Hebrews 11:1 NIV

13It is written: "I believed; therefore I have spoken."With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak, 14because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence. 15All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause

thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

17For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.

For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

1 Corinthians 4:13-18

So I fix my eyes

…not on what is seen,

…but on what is unseen.

For what is seen

…is temporary,

but what is unseen

…is eternal!
