Knowing that God is everywhere, protecting us nonstop in ways we cannot possibly begin to understand is reassuring to people like me who have a tendency to stumble around life, always needing some helpful grace to take the next step forward.
God isn’t in a certain place; no I’ve done some extensive research and have toppled upon Him in the least likely of places.
He is inside of you, before you, behind you, and at your side. (Both right and left.) He picks you up, carries you if necessary, never taking His eyes off of you.
I was one of those people who their claim to fame was “I’ll do the ‘God thing’ later; for now I just want to have my fun and enjoy my life.”
Later, like the “God thing” is a piece of cheese to be consumed some other time. And, as if having my fun and enjoying my life would not be possible with hanging around God.
All things are possible with God; just take one look at me, the one who once had at best a shallow religious life.
By the will of God I have come full circle. I feel His great love and am comforted by His ever-giving grace.
Psalm 121:2-3 lets us know we are in good hands.
“My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip – He who watches over you will not slumber.”
Bypass a chance at heaven, no thank you; skip out on God’s mercy and grace for some so-called fun; thanks all the same but I’ll pass.
Oh, our God…He’s everywhere!
