Walking along life’s path, I often feel alone. I long to feel the weight of His presence. I know He’s there. My intellect tells me that He is, and I choose to believe the written Word that says, “He will never leave me nor forsake me”.
To press forward in faith when you long for the tangible is often hard.
But that is exactly what faith is, a pressing forward into the unknown, knowing that the God of the universe has gone before you, goes with you and follows closely behind you. I am hemmed in on every side. I cannot escape His presence. He surrounds me with His goodness.
I painted this piece about a month ago. In the center of the painting is a narrow path which depicts my walk with Christ. Although I cannot see what lies ahead, He has surrounded me on every side. On both sides of the path I see His fire, the flame of His love, glimpses of His glory and a reminder that I am a royal daughter of a loving and tender Heavenly Father. He reminds me that this earth is not my home. This road I walk is temporary, and the steps I take are for a greater purpose.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever. (Psalm 23:6 NLT)
As I continue down this path of life, often blind to the blessings that await me, I will remember His promises:
He is with me.
He is good.
He loves me.
He pursues me.
He prepares a place for me.
