Never Failing

Audrey and I were jamming out today when I heard a song I haven't heard in awhile. (If you haven't noticed I love music and lyrics mean a lot to me). The song was "Rescue" by NewSong. I have always thought it was a beautiful song--like a powerful prayer put to music. It says:

I need You Jesus
To come to my rescue
Where else can I go?
There's no other name by
Which I am saved
Capture me with grace
I will follow You

This world has nothing for me
I will follow You

On August 22, when I got news that made it seem like my world was crashing down, for a moment I felt so alone. I thought How could this be happening?. So many emotions flooded me all at once--sadness, hurt, anger, and so much more. Then God sent me that perfect song on the way home that caused me to be flooded with something else--hope. I was reminded that no matter what storm I am walking through, I have hope. In that moment, I knew that I could cling to my Jesus--that I had to cling to Him.

When I heard this song today, it took me back to that moment where hope mixed in with all of those other emotions and I could feel God holding me and walking with me.

How many people do we come in contact with every day who have no hope--who are searching for the hope we carry with us? We will all go through some tough storms in this life, but God is always there every step of the way. He will never leave us.

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.

Deuteronomy 31:6

It doesn't matter what you are going through, you can always cling to Him. He is always faithful, though we are not.
