Never Once

"Standing on this mountaintop
  Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us"

Never once. A song by Matt Redman has been my saving grace these days. The first verse above especially. I am here on this "mountaintop", a place so exciting and new that the Lord has brought me too. And looking down and all around me, seeing how far I have come in this life is blowing my mind. At the Rising worship night at the beginning of October, this all hit me like a ton of bricks. For YEARS, the Lord has been preparing me. Never once in the 10 years that I have been doubting him and telling him no, did he leave me alone. Never once, even in the darkest moments was I alone. I can type and speak these words, but believing them has changed me. It has completely rocked my world. 

So tonight I just wanted to let you all know that the same truth is available to you too. No matter where you are in life or how hard something seems, never once will He leave your side. Never once will he leave you on your own. My prayer is that if you are struggling or searching for a reason or understanding, that you cling to those words. 

Watch this video to hear the song.

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
