in the early morning stillness, when the mists are still upon the land, when the uncertainty of a new day is at hand, He is there. When I don’t know where to turn, when I don’t know how to cope, He is there. When life is too hard, when I’m at my wit’s end, He is there.
So many times I have been in this place with Jesus at my side and I’ve looked the other way. So many times I’ve seen despair because I did this, so many times I wondered why. But He was there all along; right there! He was there and I looked away from his face to see… what?
I was waiting for Him to make the first move, I was waiting for Him to do something, I was waiting for Him to save me. He was at my side already waiting for me to look His way, for He had already done everything for me.
Alas! No more. I will seek Him in the morning, I will seek Him in the daylight and I will seek Him in the night. I will gaze directly at Him and say “thank you Lord for never leaving my side.” I will serve Him all the days of my life, and I will spend eternity in His loving care.
