BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD by Rascal Flatts

For some reason I just found myself singing this old song from the group Rascal Flatts. I first liked this song when Carrie Underwood sang it while she was still a contestant in American Idol. What I love about the song is the positiveness of the lyrics, reminding us that every stumble we take has a reason and that in the end, we will all end up with someone that God especially made for us. :)

This is the original version :

And this is Carrie Underwood’s performance in AI:

And of course, here’s the lyrics:

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

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
Yes He did

I think about the years I spent, just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost, and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there, you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true

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

But now I’m just rolling home into my lover’s arms
This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
