Don’t Ever Let Me Go

Earlier this week I was worshiping in my free time and was listening to the song “Don’t Ever Let Me Go” by Corey Voss (incredible song by the way if you haven’t heard it check it out). While listening to this song, I would sing out to the Lord “Don’t ever let me go” and each time he would reply back “I won’t.” I could not stop smiling, I was at loss for words. Hearing a reply from the King of Kings and Lord of Lords struck me with awe. The fact that he wanted to speak to me personally wrecked my mind. Our God yearns to speak to all of his children. The Word says in Jeremiah 33:3 that if you call to him he will answer you and I believe that this still applies for today. All we have to do is be willing to get silent before him and wait to see what he has to say. During this week I was having difficulties emotionally with feeling unloved by a family member and it was beginning to really impact me even though I tried to fight it. It felt like a scab was reopening which was extremely painful for me. I didn’t know what else to do but cry out to the Lord. When I cried out to the Lord, I didn’t instantly feel better however over time I did and I came to realize that God is the only one who can fill the places that others leave void. You’re going to have a lot of disappointments in your life but your Heavenly Father will never let you down. He’s there from the beginning to end and he doesn’t plan on leaving your side. Never lose sight of God because in the end, he’ll always be the only one still standing next to you when times get tough. Psalms 73:23-26 NIV states “Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” This circumstance really challenged me to always rely on him for everything, even when it comes to my emotional needs; to surrender all the hurt and pain so that he can wrap me up in his unfailing love. It reminded me that its okay to not be okay because in Christ we find Purpose for the Pain, Strength for the Struggle and Faith for the Fight. He is faithful and he will never let you go.
