Never Alone

So today I am off the Meredith Andrews kick (although she is going to be in Flower Mound on Wednesday and I really want to go, but alas I shall be serving the Lord in orchestra practice - that is okay because I will make sure I go one day to see her in concert). Today I got Never Alone in my head by Barlow Girl. I like Barlow Girl - they are all sisters and one is a drummer. Let's hear it for girl drummers! Yay!! The video is Never Alone.

When I was still a part of First Baptist Dallas, Dr. Jeffress once shared something he does in his prayer time and I decided that I would incorporate that into mine. I do this once a month usually towards the end of the month. I take a sheet of paper I put a line down the middle and on one side write My Requests and on the the other side I write God's Answers. I am still in the midst of the bumpy part of the Great Faith Adventure. Not always a fun place to be. But I love to see how God shows up and I do need Him to show up in a mighty way. I did my prayer request list on Sunday and one thing I put on there is my current job situation. I am praying that i will find a full time position at a college, but I am also praying for a 3rd job that will help me gt through the rest of the semester or finding a 2nd job and then I can make some changes with the ad change job (last semester 3 jobs got a little much for me). Yesterday I went down to Waxahachie to return the books and the keys and 1 of the cd's and I came back with a job. It is not full time, but I need something so I accepted it and said thank you Jesus. They need another psych instructor for the 2nd 8 week clases which start up March 8th. I will be teaching a Friday only class so I start March 12th. It is at the Midlothian campus which is awesome because it is much closer than Waxahachie. Thankful for a partial victory, and still praying that God will help me to make it through the semester and glad that He is helping me not to abandon ship mid-way through. My friend Melissa and I had gotten into a discussion about honoring commitments even when it is hard to do. And I do want to honor the commitments that I have made and do the right thing.

I also am kind of at a weird place on my walk with God. I don't know quite how to describe it. I do describe my relationship with God as open because there is nothing He doesn't know and that helps me as I pour out my heart to Him. I am honest (He already knows why hide it?). But you know how sometimes it just gets a little challenging - that is what it is for me. Which is why I really like this song by Barlow Girl. It reminds me that no matter what I am never alone. And I do hold tight and I know He works through all of this.

Here are the lyrics. You can sing along with the video.

"Never Alone"

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You'd be there
And though I haven't seen You
Are You still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life

We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen


We cannot separate
You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen
