You are watching: Not for a moment did you forsake me


The latest single from Word Worship"s passionate and also powerful vocalist, Meredith Andrews, is the effective and profound "Not For A Moment (After All)," the first track released from Andrews" brand-new 11-track album, Worth It All. Written by Andrews, Jacob Sooter and Mia Fieldes and also produced by Paul Mabury, the song introduces listeners to the album"s principles of definition and also worth, and what"s truly of best worth.
As Andrews freshly detailed, "Only Jesus is worthy of it all. My life, my heart, my eincredibly breath, my authentic love, my worship. He is whatever. He is Worth It All."
With her deyet release in 2008, Andrews" insightful songs and also engaging voice awarded her recognition as Billboard Magazine"s "Most Promising New Artist." In 2011, she picked up 2 Dove Awards for "Praise Song of the Year" and "Praise and also Prayer Album of the Year," easily separating her as among the preeminent worship leaders and songauthors in the Christian music area. With the success of her first 2 albums, she was afforded the possibility to tour via acasserted CCM artists Natalie Grant, Brandon Heath, Bebo Normale and Michael W. Smith.
Worth It All is the newest "best" album by Meredith Andrews. While not a exit from her signature piano-based style, this album builds on the momentum of Meredith"s vertical worship songs "New Song We Sing", "How Great is the Love" and current No. 1 inspirational song, "Not for a Moment (After All)." She has created and also tape-recorded a whole album loaded with songs that all lug listeners the Throne Room focusing on how God is "Worth It All." I had actually the chance to intercheck out Meredith about her stirring worship song.
When I started creating for this album, I wanted to compose corpoprice worship songs that were likewise accessible to all kinds of listeners for the sake of getting to even more people that might not hear these messperiods in a church establishing. When Jacob and I created "Not For A Moment" with our frifinish Mia, we had actually no concept that God would certainly use the lyrics of this song to minister to us months after we had actually composed it.
We were having actually a composing session in Nashville, and also Mia started talking around the song "Never Once" by Matt Redman. We loved just how that song had such a fresh sound and also timemuch less message. The reality that He loves us and also will never forsake us, also in our weakest, darkest moments, is a fact that never before transforms. It is always true. He is continuous, great, and also in regulate even once it"s difficult to believe. I"ve seen first-hand also the influence that fact set to music has actually on people"s resides. I"m humbled and also thankful for the chance for this song emotional hearts and resides in means over and past what it"s currently done in our family members. I was praying throughout the song for God to not hide Himself from me.
Jeremiah 29:11-13: For I know the plans I have actually for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and also not to harm you, plans to provide you hope and a future. Then you will certainly contact on me and come and also pray to me, and I will certainly listen to you. You will look for me and also uncover me as soon as you seek me with all your heart.
… Romans 8:35: "Who shall sepaprice us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or ditension, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or risk, or sword?"
…and also Romans 8:38-39: "For I am encouraged that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor points to come, nor elevation nor depth, nor any various other developed point, shall have the ability to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
A few months later after we"d composed this song, my household went through the ringer and also we dealt with some really challenging cases. My youngest brother had actually some personal battles as soon as I went residence to visit my household and I referred to as Jacob and began crying. Jacob sent out me the lyrics from the bridge, "In my hurt, at my worst / When my people falls dvery own / Not for a minute will certainly You forsake me."
Then, I taken on that truth even even more carefully than ever before prior to. What we require more than anything is God"s presence in our stays. When we recognize God is through us, He carries us with our dark scenarios and also trust in His sovereignty. We deserve to trust that He gives and takes ameans, however blessed be the name of the Lord.

Inevitably we"ll be in periods in our resides once we"ll think that God has actually foracquired us and is hiding Himself from us. Those are lies from the opponent. We have to cling to God"s Word and also think every little thing He tells us. That"s His love letter to us. That"s the foundation of our belief. What God says is true no issue exactly how we"re feeling. In the chorus, I sing. "Not for a moment will You forsake me." The reminder that God will never before leave or forsake us is the truth. The reality that we"re able to come before the Lord and lay our burdens down, God allows us leave our burdens at His feet. God wants to draw us closer to Himself.
You were reaching with the stormWalking on the waterEven as soon as I could not seeIn the middle of it allWhen I assumed You were a thousand also miles awayNot for a moment did You forsake meNot for a moment did You forsake meAfter all You are constantAfter all You are just goodAfter all You are sovereignNot for a minute will certainly You forsake meNot for a minute will certainly You forsake meYou were singing in the darkWhispering Your promiseEven as soon as I can not hearI was organized in Your armsCarried for a thousand also miles to showNot for a moment did You forsake meAfter all You are constantAfter all You are only goodAfter all You are sovereignNot for a moment will You forsake meNot for a moment will You forsake meAnd every step eincredibly breath you are thereEextremely tear eexceptionally cry eextremely prayerIn my hurt, at my worstWhen my civilization drops downNot for a minute will certainly You forsake meEven in the darkEven when it"s hardYou will certainly never before leave meAfter allAfter all You are constantAfter all You are only goodAfter all You are sovereignNot for a moment will You forsake meNot for a minute will You forsake meNot for a minute will You forsake me
