Never Alone

Since my daughter is the inspiration for this blog, let me tell you a little bit about her. She is “almost 11,” going on much older, beautiful on the inside and out. She is also very strong willed, like me, and that sometimes causes conflict. We are working on that! She loves the Lord, and has made a commitment to follow Him. At her tender age she knows so much. I am so proud of her, and am astounded at the amount of responsibility God has given us in raising our children to be followers of Him.

Brooke has danced since she was 2 years old, and about half of that time she has been on a performing team that dances in competitions. She has done very well, but last year was rough for her and her friends. There was a shake up at the studio she was in, and it caused turmoil. We made the decision to leave with some other people after much discussion, prayer and thought. The Lord has shown us many times, and in many different ways, that we have made the right decision and followed Him. The directors of the new studio are filled with faith and love for God, and they are missionaries of sort. Through them, and the dances they choreograph, and the music they choose, they are spreading the light of Jesus. It has been a blessing!

Of course I love all of her dances, and am impressed at her courage to go out on stage all by herself and do a solo. She is a little witness as she dances to “Talk about it” by Nicole C. Mullen. Her tap dance is so tough and funny, Hip Hop has been a fun challenge, Jazz production is amazingly good, and Lyrical is beautiful. Some people like lyrical, and others don’t. It’s not my husbands favorite, but it is mine. The movements are so fluid and perfectly choreographed to the music of “Never Alone” by BarlowGirl. They tell a wonderful story on stage, and it moves me every time. Are there tough days that you just want God to show up and let you see Him? That’s kind of the story behind this song.

Never Alone-Barlow Girl
I waited for You today
but You didn’t show
no no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
said You’d be there
and though I haven’t seen You
Are You still there?

I cried out with no reply
and I can’t feel You by my side
so I’ll hold tight to what I know
You’re here and I’m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can’t explain why
such a deep, deep reassurance
You’ve placed in my life

We cannot separate
‘Cause You’re part of me
and though You’re invisible
I’ll trust the unseen

I wish I could play this for you. I encourage you to listen to it, and feel the words. It is beautiful, especially with my baby girl dancing to it. The message will give you hope and peace. We don’t need to See Him, just open your heart and feel His presence. He is always here, and we are never alone.
