“My presence is present with you always. As you bend your knees to me, I see your heart, hear your prayers and lift you up so that the power of my love may be complete in you. As your heart joins with mine we become one in my Spirit. You never need to fear for I am near when you call out to me and I will take care of you.
I am patient with you. When you fall behind, I wait for you to catch up. I go ahead of you and I prepare the way. With me, your path is never dark even when you cannot see the light for both light and dark are the same to me. If you wish to know me, then you must fully trust me even when it seems like you are walking in darkness.
Although you see so much beauty in the world around you, it is only a fraction of the beauty and majesty I have yet to reveal. The light to come at the end of your journey is the fulfillment of every blessing that I have in store for all of you who call me Father. It is the brilliant illumination of eternity found in the Kingdom of Heaven. It is the place where my glory lives, and it will be the ultimate fulfillment of your hope in me. No more will you live in darkness, then you will see clearly.
I am your present and living hope, the light of your life, the provider of your every need and the giver of every good gift. Do not fear the condition of your world. Live each day in the hope and security of my glory as it has come to your heart. Trust me and allow my love to be the sustaining force of your life propelling you toward heaven and eternity with me.”

(Note: Since I started this blog, I have had a fear that one day, I would duplicate a post. With this blog, my fear has become a reality…I have toyed with deleting it so that I don’t look too foolish…but it occurred to me that perhaps someone might need to see this with a different spin based upon the title or maybe they didn’t see the other post so this is new to them. Perhaps I am the one who needs to see it again a little more clearly!)
