You Never Let Go

You Never Let Go

Monday 14th March 2011

This past week has been madness - Mr. C finally went back to work today after the disastrous tummy bug that made its way through our family, and then onto my Mum, who had very kindly popped up to help us out. Button also finally seems to be brighter, is eating more and hopefully going to be sleeping better again soon *yawn*, we have had a few interrupted nights due to her not eating solids for the past week :-(. But the past two days she has stopped being so clingy with me, and finally started being happy to spend time with Mr. C again, and is once more laughing and smiling; whew!

This whole week I have only had one song on my mind... we sang it at church last Sunday, little knowing how much I would be leaning on this song. It seems insane looking back (and so pathetically minuscule compared to Christchurch and now Japan). But these lyrics can be so true for both of the above situations, as well as anyone going through a (small!) crisis as well:

You Never Let Go lyrics
by Matt Redman

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?

(Chorus:)
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 a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We'll live to know You here on the earth

(Chorus)

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

(Chorus 2x's)

See, it's the chorus that gets to me, I'm not sure why; but I sang it over and over to myself, and over and over to Button all week! It kept me sane...

So now I will be singing it over and over again for Japan :-(.

Jesus - never let go of them, please.

Isn't it such a blessing and reassurance to know the He never lets go - and He so often gives us a song or scripture just at the right moment to 'get us through' something.
