You’re Still The One I Run To!

Shyju Mathew

"Experience the Word of God, in the power of the Spirit."

Recently I heard a song being played in the background while I was out. The words went this way: “You’re still the one I run to, the one that I belong to, you’re still the one I kiss good night, .. we’re together, still going strong.. You’re the one I want for life…

I don’t know the exact lyrics, but the words of the song touched me. As I prayed, I could not help but pour out my heart in tears, confessing, “God, you are the One I want for life!”

Jesus is irreplaceable! He is the only One you and I will ever need! When God led me into this ministry at the tender age of 7, it was His arms that I ran into at every instance of my life. It’s been more than 15 years now, and still, it’s Him that I want to run to! I know that He alone can see me through.

It’s all about Jesus. It’s only about Jesus and it should always be about Jesus!

There have been many ups and downs over my life, both happy times and sad times, yet He’s always been on my side. I believe, more than we wanting to be with Him, it’s His love that has not forsaken us! Even at times when we were not faithful, He has forever been faithful.

A beloved saint once said, “God is committed in seeing you through!”

Wow! Those words ring in my ears every time I think about how far we as a ministry have come and the greater things that lie ahead of us!
Even in our frailty, despite our incapacities and vulnerability, God is committed to see us through!

Where you run to in your moment of dire need is your stronghold! May Jesus be your stronghold!

Do you have a testimony to share on how God saw you through in the ups and downs of your life? Share…
