I’ve been with You All Along

Standing all alone on a cold, dark, night…
Alone in the dark, shadows and light
Companions these…no thoughts, no needs…
Something or someone pulls at my heart…
A perception I sense, here, alone, in the dark…
No, you can’t see me you can’t touch me…but I’m here just the same…
In the old hymns you’re remembering in all those old songs…
You’re not alone I’ve been with you all along…
In the stillness of the night when you wonder if everything will be alright
Sitting at your breakfast table mulling over things out of sight…
That gentle nudge is me, telling you, don’t be afraid, you’re not alone; I’ve been with you all along…
I’m here, son, daughter, living right inside of you, you’re never alone.
In the quiet of the early morning you will hear me whisper…start your day with a song of praise let me tell you how to pray…
Open your heart; open your mind and listen, listen, listen…
Hear what I have to say…
“I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole.
That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught. “You’ve heard me tell you, ‘I’m going away, and I’m coming back.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I’m on my way to the Father because the Father is the goal and purpose of my life.
“I’ve told you this ahead of time, before it happens, so that when it does happen, the confirmation will deepen your belief in me. I’ll not be talking with you much more like this because the chief of this godless world is about to attack. But don’t worry—he has nothing on me, no claim on me. But so the world might know how thoroughly I love the Father, I am carrying out my Father’s instructions right down to the last detail.
 “Get up. Let’s go. It’s time to leave here.” John 14:26-31 The Message (MSG)Bible

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
