never alone

"When Christ said 'alway(s)' (Matthew 28:20), He meant to assure us that there is not a day of our lives in which that blessed presence is not with us.  It is ours every day.  There does not need to be a moment in which that presence cannot be our experience.  This does not depend on what we can do, but on what He undertakes to do.  The omnipotent Christ is the omnipresent Christ; the ever present is the everlasting. As surely as He is the Unchangeable One, His presence, as the power of an endless life, will be with each of His servants who trusts Him for it." ~ Andrew Murray

There is great comfort in being reminded of this.  God is always there.  Always with us.  He's never going to say, "Just a minute!" or "I'll call you back later!" (ohhh, how miserably I fail at that!).  He's not going to turn away for a moment to look at something else.  He is ever-present in our lives and it doesn't depend upon what we can do.  Just trust Him.

The older I get, the more I can look back and see His fingerprints of presence in my life.  With faith I can say, just trust Him.  He's always with you!
