You were there.

I fall in love with this song – once again ;).

Somehow in the past 3 days, God urges me to listen to this song, a song that I never take much attention before.

You Were There – Avalon

I wonder how it must have felt
When David stood to face Goliath on a hill
I imagine that he shook with all his might
Until You took his hand, and held on tight

‘Cause You were there, You were there
In the midst of danger’s snare
You were there, You were there always
You were there when the hardest fight
Seemed so out of reach
Oh, You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So there he stood upon that hill
Abraham with knife in hand was poised to kill
But God in all his sovereignty had bigger plans
And just in time, You brought a lamb

‘Cause You were there,
You were there
In the midst of the unclear
You were there, you were there always
You were there when obedience
Seemed to not make sense
You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So haven’t I learned that my ways
Aren’t as high as Yours are
And You alone keep the universe
From crumbling into dust
You are God and though we would
Not have understood You
There You were

Hanging blameless on a cross
You would rather die than leave us in the dark
Every moment, every planned coincidence
Just all makes sense
With Your last breath

You were there, You were there
During history’s darkest hour
You were there, You were there always
You were the Victor and the King
You were the power in David’s swing
You were the calm in Abraham
You are the God who understands
You are the strength when we have none
You are the living, Holy one
You were, You are and You will always be
the Risen Lamb of God

You were, You are and You will always be
The Risen Lamb of God


This song literally makes me cry. When you feel that you are alone, that you have no one to talk to, no one that can understand you… you are reminded.

God was there. God is there. God will always be there.

Once again, I was reminded of God’s love, about my faith, and about His promise of being there with us – always.

In the past week, when I have so many assignments (and you kinda feel like a failure in university), when I have so many struggles and sometimes you just feel like everything you do is a mistake, when you fall again and again in the same sin and somehow can’t live the life that God wants you to live, when you walk home from the university and it’s getting dark, with the cold pierces your skin and the wind strikes your body – you will take pity on yourself.

But God has bigger plans for me.

He will never give up on me, if I’m not giving up on Him.

and I will never, ever give up on Him.

I believe that God is with me, through my every step.

He was there with me when I was doing my assignments.

He was there with me when I waited on the bus for 30 minutes in the cold.

He was there with me when I felt like a failure and did something wrong.

and He is here with me – He understands me. He loves me.


You were, You are, and You will always be!

love You, Lord.
