You’ve Always Been

Has anything or anyone ever been missing in your life?

A parent? A child? A best friend?

A spouse?

A job? A purpose?

Maybe you’re physically surrounded by people, but they are emotionally or spiritually distant.

Maybe you had (or have) a family, but you went through the motions and it was never what God intended for a family to be.

Maybe you had an absent parent by divorce or death that always left this void in your heart.

Maybe you failed as a parent and wish you could go back and do it all over again.

Maybe you’re tired of people telling you, “All in God’s timing,” or “Everything happens for a reason.”

I’ve been there. Sometimes, I still go there.

But, I heard this song today and it reminded me that the Lord can – and does – meet all of our needs.

Sure, not having someone’s arms to hug you at the end of the day is a painful ache deep in your chest.

It’s a physical heartache that seems hard to replace with an invisible Savior, but He can.

I think sometimes we just have to reach the point where we are ready to let Him…fill the void.

I’ve had good days, I’ve had bad days, tasted victory in defeat
I’ve had problems, biggest planets turn to pebbles when You speak

I’ve had nothing to my name, never lacked for anything
Because You were there with me

You’ve been my Savior, Sustainer, when I’m at my end
My Healer, Redeemer, again and again

My Mother and my Father, Brother, Sister, and Friend
Everything I’ve needed Lord, You’ve always been

Everything I’ve needed Lord, You’ve always been

When I stand before You guilty, oh, Your mercy bears my blame
When in pride I think I’m worthy, You point out the price You paid

When I wander far away, You keep calling my name
You don’t give up on me

You’ve been my Savior, Sustainer, when I’m at my end
My Healer, Redeemer, again and again

Everything I’ve needed Lord, You’ve always beenYou are my strength, my rock, Jesus

You are my hope, my song, Jesus
Before my heart knows what to pray
You’ve already made a way, Jesus

You’ve been my Savior, Sustainer, when I’m at my end
My Healer, Redeemer, again and again

Everything I’ve needed Lord, You’ve always been
Oh, Yes, You have
Thank You, Jesus, yes
You’ve always been
