When I first listened to today’s featured song, I was reminded of a Psalm of David. Known as the Shepherd’s Psalm, David compares God’s nature to a loving shepherd who provides comfort to anyone who feels alone. Tori Kelly first gained recognition after posting videos on YouTube as a teenager. In today’s song Never Alone, Tori joins Kirk Franklin to sing this comforting ballad.
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me, Psalm 23:4.
The lyrics of Never Alone speaks to individuals who have fought through difficult seasons in life. Whenever someone is forced to endure a series of trials, crying and pain often ensue. Like the realization of the apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:7-9, at your weakest point opens the door for Jesus to be strong. May Never Alone encourage any souls that need to be uplifted today.
