The God Who Will Never Let Go


Rebecca Barlow Jordan

Someone cut the power, unplugged your hope,

short-circuited your expectations, and left you wandering in the dark.

And questions rise like ghosts in the night:

Is anyone there? Does anyone care?

How long will you stumble against concrete walls,

bleeding from sharp corners that lead nowhere?

No escape to the right, no turn to the left;

No shadows dispelling your fear.

Defying the dark, bruised and broken,

you reach through the rubble,

only to fall again…and again…and again.

You crawl to your knees. Won’t someone please


The silence is a tomb.

Then with head and heart bowed, pride stripped away,

A crack appears in the seams.

It’s still dark, but you see.

How can that be?

You hear a faint whisper, see a candle unlit,

Taunting, or taking control?

Then you know…you KNOW

He was there all along!

For to Him light and dark are the same.

He’s the One who threw stars into blankets of night,

Whose Son blinded the day!

No need to run now–not ever again.

He’s the God who will never let go.

God’s Faithfulness

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you (Psalm 139:7-12, NIV).

My Personal Prayer for You

Lord, only You know the ones walking in darkness, whose hopes beg for restoration. Speak peace and light and joy once again where memories need jogging to remember Who You really are, that You are still in control, and that You will never let one of Your loved ones go. And to those who have never seen the Light, who run hard from Your presence, Oh, God! Remove the blinders, crack open the heart too crusted over with pain and darkness. Let them see You, know You, love You! Praise God, we can never escape Your right hand of mercy, grace, and love. You are faithful–always!

Day-votedly Yours,
