Count on me through thick and thin a friendship that will never end. When you are weak I will be strong helping you to carry on. Count on me I will be there. You can count on me. How many times has this promise been made to you and how many times have you made this promise? How did it feel when the promise was broken? Whether it was you not being there for someone or someone not being there for you. How did it feel? Well, for me it was not a good feeling on either side of the spectrum. I have learned not to make such bold promises. Not that I am not a trustworthy or dependable person, but because I am not in control of what happens or in control of my own life for that matter. I have come to learn that only God can make those kinds of promises. As God is ever present in your time of need and always present for that matter. God is eternal therefore the friendship will truly never end. The Bible teaches that his strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Finally, although this was a nice, warm, and highly popular song it is not a good way to live your life. Don't count on me or any other fallible creature! Count on the One who Was who Is who Is to come.
