Not For A Moment

Posted on September 12th, 2012

Last winter when Jared and I were in waiting and trusting mode for a baby and a new job, there was a particular song that spoke deeply to us. “Not For A Moment” by Meredith Andrews became a personal song for us both and when we sang it at church throughout the winter it was as if God was reminding us He was very present in our circumstances though nothing was changing.

The first time we sang this song at church, I came home and searched online for the lyrics but found out it had not yet been released. Since moving, I still have thought of this song and wondered from time to time when it would be released to the public. Well, Monday, I got back in my car after a little stop at Target and I recognized the new song on the radio. As I listened to it for a couple of seconds, I realized it was “Not For A Moment!” I was so elated to hear that song again–not only because I love the sound but because the words minister to my heart and remind me of God’s faithfulness, especially now several months later as God has answered our prayers for a baby and a job. I pray this song encourages you in your journey and if you need a reminder today that God is faithful, I hope you take a moment to listen to these words. (You can listen to it by clicking on the song below.)

Psalm 117:2 “For great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD.”

Not For A Moment by Meredith Andrews
You were reaching through the storm
walking on the water
even when I could not see
in the middle of it all
when I thought You were a thousand miles away
not for a moment did You forsake me
not for a moment did You forsake me

after all You are constant
after all You are only good
after all You are sovereign
not for a moment will You forsake me
not for a moment will You forsake me

You were singing in the dark
whispering Your promise
even when I could not hear
I was held in Your arms
carried for a thousand miles to show
Not for a moment did You forsake me

and every step every breath you are there
every tear every cry every prayer
in my heart at my worst
when my world falls down
not for a moment will You forsake me
even in the dark
even when it’s hard
you will never leave me
after all

not for a moment will You forsake me
