Song Story: Run To You

"Run To You" was written in 2014 during a time of great uncertainty in my own personal life.  During this time, there was a great amount of stress and feelings of upheaval and instability.  It was during this time that I read verses like:

"Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his..."   2 Tim 2:19a

"The Lord’s name is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and find refuge."  Proverbs 18:10

As I read these verses, I realized that instead of retreating from God during times of stress, that what God wants from us is to bring our feelings of uncertainty to Him, the one who holds our lives in His hands. 

So, this song is basically an expression of trust in God and His good plans for my life, and my future. 

When the way is dark and I cannot see
Your Word is a lamp unto my feet
When I cannot feel and I don’t believe
You are the One that will never leave

I will trust You, God
You are my All in All
Your promise is my hope
Your word will never fall
When the trials come
It’s You that I will run to
I will run to You

When the waters rise out of control
You are the anchor for my soul
When I am afraid and my hope is gone
You are the promise that I’m standing on

Forever I will trust in Your love, in Your love
Even when I can’t see
No matter what You are God, You are God
You will deliver me
— Run To You (2014)
