Thoughts and Reflections

God Is Always There!

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

20140530-104833-38913743.jpgGrowing up – it seemed like whenever Lois Lane screamed or was in trouble – Superman was there. I remember reading comics as a child – and watching Superman on TV too – and Superman was always there – or so it seemed

Growing up – it seemed like Mom or Dad were always there – or Grandmother. As a little one – I never had a fear of being alone – someone was always looking out for me. Even playing in the woods or in the yard or in the cemetery (pastor’s kids play in the cemetery) – they were always there!

Growing up – I learned that God was really the only One that could always be there. There was no Superman – only pretend. Mom – Dad – and Grandmother had their limitations. Although I always thought they were always there – there were times I hid from them or was out of their sight for a brief time. God was the only One that would always be there and always watch out for me – even when I made a mess of things.

Today’s passage reminded me of this childhood memory – Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Even though God is always there – we can still mess up! Yet – knowing that He is always there seems to be such a comfort – at least to me!

Just something to think about today as you go on your way.
