We sang the song "You Never Let Go" by Matt Redman in church on Sunday. Our church has an amazing, really amazing worship team. The leader is just incredible. Worship is hugely important to my spiritual growth. I need it. I feel close to God when I sing simple phrases glorifying who He is and forgetting about me.
We've sung this particular song lots of times. Have you ever thought about the words? For some reason, they really struck me, especially these...

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You
Still I will praise You

The first line was barely out of my mouth before I had chills and couldn't even speak. I love when it feels like God reaches out and puts His arms around me. I can feel His presence, His peace, his love. I don't need anything else and the rest of the craziness that I have been battling for the last week disappears in the eternal. It was an amazing moment. And I haven't stopped thinking about it or the words to that song. I feel incredibly content and happy even though my heart and mind feel like they've been through a battle.
Ever had a moment like that? Do share! It's therapeutic!
