Never Let Go

After talking through some hard things I have been processing with a super awesome lady who is investing in me, she encouraged me, “Don’t brush it under the rug. Keep dealing. Keep running to The Lord.”

I was reflecting on the drive home at how simple those words are, but how hard that is for me to actually do. To learn how to process better. To be vulnerable with The Lord.

So much of that concept is wrapped up in my identity. I want to have it all together. I don’t want to deal with hurt. I just want to move on.

Then, the song “You Never Let Go” by Matt Redman came on the radio. This is an old song, but the words hit me in a new way.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back
I know You are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You

A whole new sense of joy met my soul tonight. The trials of life are hard, they are painful, but He never let’s go. I don’t have to be strong. Because He is seen best in my weakness. And He is the one that never lets go of me.

Another case of inexpressible joy. Even when I can’t, He can.
