You Never Let Go

In my heart, i sometimes wonder if it could be that through my own carelessness, i could lose you.
But, you never let go of me, did you?
When i was 12 & i was such a sad little girl -
you had a plan, didn't you?
When you lifted me up out of mud & the mire & gave my feet a firm place to stand -
You chose me, didn't you?
& even though sometimes i'm ill equipped, too lazy, too unkind -
i know you help me.

& i will fear no evil,
For my God is with me -
& if my God is with me -
Whom then shall i fear?
Whom then shall i fear?

Make no mistake - i know whose team i'm on...
me, Your girl, hiding in the shadow of Your wings.
You saw in me a girl who should be a momma.
No - i'm not good enough...
But You more than cover that for me don't you?
Your blessings abound - Your grace exceeds - Your love conquers.
This is my God.

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

So, keep me Jesus. Keep all of me - bend me, break me, use me.
& never let go of me.

(*Matt Redman You Never Let Go)

Romans 8:38  "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

And yet we sometimes feel that WE... somehow, can separate OURSELVES from His Love..... This in spite of the fact that Psalms 139:8 states, "If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there."

I love that we are chosen....and He will use us even when we don't think we are good enough. He makes us good enough!
