When you are tired and discouraged from fruitless efforts...

God knows how hard you have tried.

When you've cried so long and your heart is in anguish...

God has counted your tears.

If you feel that your life is on hold and time has passed you by ...

God is waiting with you.

When you're lonely and your friends are too busy even for a phone call...

God is by your side.

When you think you've tried everything and don't know where to turn...

God has a solution.

When nothing makes sense and you are confused or frustrated...

God has the answer.

If suddenly your outlook is brighter and you find traces of hope ...

God has whispered to you.

When things are going well and you have much to be thankful for...

God has blessed you.

When something joyful happens and you are filled with awe...

God has smiled upon you.

When you have a purpose to fulfill and a dream to follow...

God has opened your eyes and called you by name.

Remember that wherever you are or whatever you are facing...


I was there ... just for you

I was there on the day you were born,
and I gave you special gifts to last a lifetime.

I touched you, made you smile, helped you grow, and watched you take your first step.
I even reassured you that all would be okay when you lost your first tooth.

I saw you off on your first day of school ...
and lingered by your side the whole day.

I was there to console you every time you cried,
and I held you every time you fell and scraped your knees.

I was there every day all through the years, and I always strived to give you direction.
I helped you every step of the way into adulthood, bringing you daily gifts of inspiration,
hope, and love.

And I gave you trials so that you could grow into the warm and beautiful person you are ...
but I never abandoned you to them.

I've never, not for a single second, turned my back on you when you needed me -
even when you thought that you didn't need me.

I heard you every time you spoke, and I answered every prayer - though sometimes ...
for your best interest, I didn't answer them the way you hoped I would.

I'm still with you through your joys, your hopes, your tears, your dreams ...
through the bad days, the good days - through every day of your life.

And I will be there in the end to give you comfort and to see you safely home
where you'll sit beside me in all the glory of heaven.

- Love God

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:20

I hope you'll
remember today
that God is there,
giving you
His love and care.
He's lending you
His strength,
sending many blessings
your way,
and giving you the gift of
a bright new day.
