On May 11, 2011, I had this horrible headache (from an incoming or outgoing storm) all afternoon. I was sitting on the sofa crying and praying for Jesus (in His name) to heal me. Then He put this song, “Never Will I Leave You,” into my heart to write as His message to me to comfort and encourage me, plus He removed the headache. Praise Jesus!
I can’t begin to number the times God has spoken these words to my heart during times when I felt lonely, rejected, betrayed, forsaken, abandoned, misunderstood and discarded by others. He has often reminded me that his words are true and that he is completely faithful in all he does. He has also reminded me of the purity of his love for me, and of how much value he places upon my life, especially during times when I feel devalued by others. As humans, we will fail each other, because we are flesh. But, God will never fail us. Amen!
Never Will I Leave You
An Original Work / May 11, 2011
God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Heb. 13:5).
“Never will I leave you, nor will I forsake you.”
Jesus is your Savior; love and comfort keep you.
He is your deliverer; Rock of your salvation;
Cornerstone, rejected by men; mighty God is He!
Hope of your salvation; He is your Redeemer.
He is living in you as your Lord and Master.
He will not forget you, nor will He neglect you.
He knows all about you; He will supply all you need.
God of your redemption’s perfect plan to save you
Sacrificed for your sin, so you’d be forgiven.
He loves and adores you; perfectly He made you
So that you might be His servant and child of the King.
