about

This song was written when I was dealing with a crushing defeat to a sin I battled with for over twenty years. As songwriters do, I grabbed my guitar and began strumming some chords and wrote the first verse, "Surrounded by demons that threaten my soul". When I finished the verse, I hit the chord on the build and suddenly I felt the Lord remind me that he said He will never leave me or forsake me.

It was as if God was saying, "I knew what I was getting into when I saved you. I am not afraid, nor should you be." That moment was a defining moment for me. Although it took a few more years to find victory in that area, I had a greater assurance that God is faithful to finish what He started!

lyrics

Surrounded by demons that threaten my soul
Struggling to maintain control
The battle rages with no hope in sight
Feels like the end has come tonight
But I remember the words that you said


You'll never leave me or forsake me
Nothing in this world can separate me
Neither death nor life nor things between
Can take away the love you've given me
Lord help me believe


I've had my losses Failed to win the day
I've raised the white flag and ran away
And now I'm feeling I've exhausted your grace
I'm barely holding on to faith
Then you come to me and I hear you say


You'll never leave me or forsake me
Nothing in this world can separate me
Neither death nor life nor things between
Can take away the love you've given me
Lord help me believe


Rescue me from the me that once was
Make me brand new and help me become
A righteous man after your own heart but until then


You'll never leave me or forsake me
Nothing in this world can separate me
Neither death nor life nor things between
Can take away the love you've given me
Lord help me believe
