I tried to hide from Him to go my own way, but He never leaves;
His Spirit is within me.
I feel reverence for Him as I stand in His presence.
I get strength from Him to move forward.
When I'm not running away from God and have decided to submit (surrender) to His will,
I am calm, confident, even if things around me are falling apart.
I SEE YOUR FACE
I have never seen Jesus' face; I only imagine if I did,
all I would see is intense light.
Sometimes I cry out to God, pleading, feeling like I'm not heard
...and He listens to every word.
When my pain is exhausted, I come to realize God has been working in and through my life,
though He felt so far away. He is still here.
I am revived when I remember and hold on to the fact
that Jesus will never leave me.
When I am not worried, stressed about the obstacles I face, I can listen clearly to
the Holy Spirit's voice guiding me on where to go next.
Doubt returns when I don't feel Him near me.
Is He still there? Always.
I am a child of God.
I am free to be me.
I am surrounded by God's love. The greatest assurance of His existence is
the Holy Spirit living within me.
