Always

I know that God is always with me, even though over the past couple of years I have forgotten this. At times I am just plain begging him to help me/guide me/show me/hear me. And then I have moments, like today, that I come to the realization that perhaps He has heard me and I am now the one that needs to listen...at least that is what I think and believe, and it has gotten me this far. He has kept me strong and content while I see others around me achieve what I want/desire/ache for. He stands next to me when I struggle and am sad because I just want something else. He has giving me  (and continues to give me) the courage to accept His plan and to live and enjoy each day. He has given me the comfort of knowing that even if I don't know where the paths lead, He DOES!

He is with me, always!

I love this song by Matt Redman-You Never Let Go Of Me

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

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

And I can see the light that is comin' for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to the struggles
But until that day comes, we'll live to know You here on the Earth

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


You keep on loving and you never let go

And i can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
and there will be and end to the struggles
but until that day comes
Still I will praise You

Still I will praise You
