Never Once Did We Ever Walk Alone

Posted on November 11th, 2013

I was hoping to sit down and reflect a bit in a blog post yesterday but I didn’t plan on my sweet Olivia catching a cold.  My plans changed from tackling my to-do list and relaxing with Jared to entertaining and soothing sick Olivia. It seemed fitting to me though to focus on Olivia because yesterday (November 10) marked four years from my surgery that discovered my tumor. I’ll be honest that I sorta wanted to complain yesterday since the day totally didn’t go as I planned but I just couldn’t because overriding the disruption of my plans was a deep joy and gratefulness that I even had a sweet interruption named Olivia. I can’t count the times I desperately prayed for a baby during those difficult years and though she has totally changed my life, I am so, so thankful. And I am so, so thankful to be four years out from my cancer diagnosis.

My favorite song on the radio right now totally encompasses all that I am feeling on this milestone:

Never Once by Matt Redman

Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Never once did we ever walk alone
Carried by Your constant grace
Held within Your perfect peace
Never once, no, we never walk alone

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Every step we are breathing in Your grace
Evermore we’ll be breathing out Your praise
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
