Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

Your perfect love is casting out fear

And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life

I won’t turn back, I know you are near

And I will fear no evil, For my God is with me

And if my God is with me, Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go

Through the calm and through the storm

Oh no, You never let go

In every high and every low

Oh no, You never let go

Lord, You never let go of me…

I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on.

There will be an end to these troubles, but until that day comes,

Still I will praise Him, still I will praise Him…” (Matt Redman, “You Never Let Go”)

Just as I finished writing this, the tornado sirens went off and a storm passed violently through.  Rain came down hard.  Minutes later, the birds are chirping and the sun is shining and it. is. still.

One thought on “The whirlwind

  1. “The Lord is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath hsi feet.” Nahum 1:3
