I Am with you Always

As you got up I watched and hoped you would talk to me. Just a few words, such as thanking me for
something good in your life yesterday or last week, would do. But I noticed you were busy selecting the right clothes for work. I waited again to hear from you.

When you ran around the house collecting papers, I knew there would be a few minutes to stop and
say hello, but you never slowed down.

I wanted to tell you that I could help you accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible
if you would just spend some of each day with me. At one point you waited fifteen minutes in a chair
with nothing to do. I waited to hear from you.

Then I saw you spring to your feet; I thought you wanted to talk to me, but you ran to the
phone and called a friend. I watched as off to work you went and waited patiently all day
long to hear from you. With all your activities you were too busy to talk with me.

I noticed at lunch you looked around; maybe you just felt embarrassed to talk to me. You glanced
three tables over and noticed some of your friends talking to me before they ate, but you wouldn’t.

There was still more time left, and I hoped that we would talk. You went home and had many things to do.
After they were done, you turned on the TV; just about anything goes there and you spend many hours
watching. I waited as you continued watching TV and ate your meal but again you wouldn’t talk to me.

At bedtime you were totally tired. After you said good night to your family you plopped into bed and
fell asleep. I had so much wanted to be part of your day. We could have had so much fun and accomplished
so much together.

I love you so much that I wait everyday for a thought, prayer or thanks. Well, maybe tomorrow! I’ll be waiting.

Your Friend, God

Always on His Mind

“How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” – Psalm 139:17

“How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” – Psalm 139:17

Have you ever had difficulty receiving from God because you thought, “God has better things on His mind,” or “This isn’t that important to Him”? It may be tempting to let your mind wander in that direction, but the truth is that nothing is more important to God than you are! Every detail of your life matters to Him. Scripture tells us that He even counts the very hairs on your head. He bottles your tears and holds them as precious. You are important to Him, and nothing that concerns you is too big or too small for God!

Today, if you’ve had those discouraging thoughts come to mind, replace them by declaring the truth of God’s Word. Declare, “God’s thoughts are precious toward me. I am always on God’s mind. He loves me and I matter to Him.” As you begin to replace the negative thoughts with the truth, your life will begin to change. You will see a transformation in your thinking. You’ll feel His love like you never have before; you will know Him in ways you’ve never known Him before, and you’ll experience His goodness and grace all the days of your life!
