“We Are Never Alone Nor Forsaken”

Even though the evidence has been shadowed
By the absence of any noticeable, tangible, presence
When moments are echoed by heartache and intense silence
Time can either be a relentless villain or a constant deliverer, without permanent closure
The clock of a persons’ personal life is not bound
No one is exempt by the circumstances of sorrow, loneliness or need.

As my mind goes adrift with my heart on each passing day
Various encounters intervene and intercept my personal journey
It would seem, that completeness has been foreign without jurisdiction
Questions, present themselves in loud whispers, captivating me
However, the certainty of my faith, in what I believe to be true
Resurfaces to admonish and remind me of a non-ending relationship and coexistence.

Each day tends to be clouded by numerous yesterdays, some good and some not so good
Tomorrow is in fact, never a guarantee to embrace this side of eternity’s veil
The promise that has me fixed: about who and what I have in Jesus Christ, as my Lord and
This belief holds me fast and keeps me safe
Even though I feel that I’m all alone, and stuck at times, my faith reminds me repeatedly
I have His Promise in Hebrews 13, that He will never leave me, and that I will never be

It’s the early morning gift and gentle kisses of each new day
Which reinforces my purpose to continue with a steadfast presence of mind
While the beauty of the heavens remind me daily of His omnipotence, omnipresence and
I believe His love is real and powerful against all impossibilities and doubts
In spite of all my insecurities that attack my mind, will and emotions
His Word is my pillow, that gives me comfort and solace, when I am weak and need hope.

“O God, thou art My God; early will I seek thee: My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee In a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, So as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, And meditate on thee in the night watches. Because thou hast been my help, Therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. My soul followeth hard after thee: Thy right hand upholdeth me.”

Psalm 63:1-8
