# 96 - God Bless the broken road

The above line was taken from a song sent to me by a colleague of mine. I have simply fallen in love with it. 

Many times in life, bad things happen to us, and when they do, it seems like our whole world is falling apart. Everything we dreamed of shattered to pieces, sometimes the wounds don't heal, but sometimes,( and more often than not) these shattered dreams pave the way for something bigger and better that we had not even imagined.Some times we just need to have a little faith;

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through

Faith in ourselves,but more importantly faith in God. Do your part as much as you can, but if things fail, don't give up,if your plans falter, don't lose faith- it just means that God has a better plan for you that you are not aware of. Islam tells us 'The Best of Planners is God' - 
Of course with us being human, it is easier said that done- we just love to complain :)

I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Sometimes I feel that we do need to experience the 'bad' in our lives so that we can truly appreciate the good when it finally comes along.

Every long lost dream, led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way,into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you


  1. I love those last two lines! It fills me with such hope!

  2. Oh, I should have said this before xD Thank you SO SO SO much for writing this!!! It's exactly what I needed lately.

  3. AWWWWWWWW ♥ i want to hear this song.
    this post made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. (really)

  4. Sometimes you need a little darkness to see the light.

    Who's the song by btw?

    Hope all is well!

  5. I agree with you a hundred per cent. Lovely lyrics!

  6. Hm. This was interesting. I think the truest thing of all, though, is that human beings love to complain. I really do love to complain. And I like asking questions more than hearing answers. I also love cheese cake. Just a side not.

  7. This is life.. and the sooner you realize all this, the better. =) you can't have everything you want always at the very time you want it, but if u wait and persevere enough, u do get what u really want and whats best for u.
    and this quotation shows that sometimes things are actually blessings in disguise : when it is dark enough u ll see the stars.
    song kaunsa hai?
    =) and if ure going thru rogh times, hang in there. x
