Leah and L.O.S.T.

Leah and L.O.S.T.

“God loves me unconditionally and when I hit rock bottom – He is the rock.”


Three significant things happened in Leah’s life over the last two days of 2012 – she turned 15, she had a blood test that changed our lives forever and she was interviewed on Roe Valley Christian Radio about what it meant to her to be a member of L.O.S. T. – the Limavady Outreach and Service Team.

Today I discovered the notes that Leah made while preparing for that radio interview and they are oh so precious.



She quotes from her favourite Christian worship song at that time –

‘You Never Let Go’ 
By Matt Redman

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back
I know you are near……….

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me.”

Could any words have been more apt or more comforting for a girl who was very soon going to have a potential death sentence pronounced over her head?


Leah’s illness, death and her loss from our lives devastates us. Yet, the many clear signs that God was preparing her and strengthening her for all that lay ahead brings me comfort.
