You never let go.

I've been so blessed to be serving at the Josiah Venture Spring Conference by leading worship with Trevor Long. One song that we've sung in particular has really touched me: You Never Let Go by Matt Redman.

Tomorrow at 4:45 I'll be driving with Jonny (a teacher and a good friend) to Krakow, Poland, for the SAT. I've been preparing for a long time, but I of course have some fears! The song has been very encouraging, I can't help but smile when I hear and sing it!

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

What a gift to have a God who'll never let go of me. Whatever happens, God's got a plan for me and nothing is taking me off it. What a relief!!!

The test starts at 8 o'clock and will go for about 4+ hours, so please pray for a calm heart and concentration for me. It'll be an adventure.

Talking with different people at JV about college and after has also been incredibly encouraging - I can't wait for this next chapter in my life!!


Oh and by the way, I got my braces off on Tuesday! Pictures soon.

So proud of how you handled leading worship and getting your test finished...that was a lot in a week! I know you did great. I'm so thankful for Johnny taking you. You were surrounded by some good Godly men this week.

Hey Tyler...

As always, I continue to celebrate God's creativity expressed THROUGH your artistic gifts. Yay God and yay you!!! It's fun to hear that you got to lead worship last week at the conference...another expression of God confirming your artistic gifts!
