Not For A Moment

A few weeks ago my town endured a wind storm that caused such wide spread power outages and devastation that many people are still cleaning up, reparing and recovering.
Maybe you're in the midst of a storm with the wind and rain tossing and pounding you. Maybe you survived the storm but now stand surveying the devastation around you.
Maybe you're basking in the sun shining brilliantly from a clear sky, hoping and praying no clouds form on the horizon.

I love the quote on this, "Don't confuse your path with your destination. Just because it's stormy now doesn't mean that you aren't headed for sunshine."
I have but one simple thing to share: Not for a moment has He left you alone. Sovereign God is keeping you, even through the storm. He is good, despite the devastation you may face. His light shines upon you, whether or not you're sitting in the sun.
I just heard Meredith Andrews' new release, Not For a Moment. It echoes the cry of my heart, and anyone else, who has lived through or is currently enduring a storm.

Not for a moment He forsaken you. My prayer for you is to know and seek Him as your refuge. He is your deliverer and stronghold, no matter what storm you're weathering.

"The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold." ~ Psalm 18:2
Not For a Moment (Scroll down on the page & click the play button under Meredith's picture)

You were reaching through the storm
Walking on the water
Even when I could not see
In the middle of it all
When I thought You were a thousand miles away
Not for a moment did you forsake me
Not for a moment did you forsake me

After all, You are constant
After all, You are only good
After all, You are Sovereign
Not for a moment will You forsake me

You were singing the dark
Whispering your promise
Even when I could not hear
I was held in Your arms
Carried for a thousand miles to show
Not for a moment did You forsake me

And every step, every breath, You are there
Every tear, every cry, every prayer
In my heart at my worst when my world falls down
Not for a moment will You forsake me

Even in the dark
Even when it's hard
You will never leave me

After all, You are constant
After all, You are only good
After all, You are Sovereign
Not for a moment will you forsake me
