He Will Never Leave You

I will not in any way fail you 
nor leave you without support. 
I will not, I will not, I will not 
in any degree let you down or 
relax My hold on you! 
Assuredly not!
Hebrews 13:5

A simpler version says:
I will never leave you 
or let you be alone.

Oh, that this truth would ever be with me.
His simple promises are our life.
He is with us.
I can forget this a thousand times a day.
He will remind me a thousand and one.
His mercy and His faithfulness
do not keep count of my forgetfulness.
He is always with me;
He is always speaking to me.
In case I would ever not get that, 
God identified Him as the Word.
His Voice not only permeates all space,
but it subtlety brushes across every face.
If we are still enough to know His presence.
Be still and know that I am with you.

He is with us when we 
celebrate blessing, enjoy victory, 
discover how to love and live in peace.
But also when, especially when, we face trials,
encounter sorrow, walk disconnected, 
hold our breath, decipher our darkness,
struggle to discern truth from lies.
His goodness and unfailing love
pursue us all the days of our lives.
Open up you ancient gates
that the King of Glory may come in. 

Each day is opportunity to allow 
heaven to intersect with earth--in us.
We are the living temples,
the jars of clay,
hosting the presence of our God.
He will never ever leave us alone.
There is no greater hope a person can have.
The Lord hears His people 
when they call to Him for help.
He has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust Him with all my heart.

He is with me.
This great promise is my life.
