I believe one of the things the Lord wants us to keep in our hearts, in our thoughts, readily accessible to remember and meditate on…
…is that God is with us.
We’ve not been “left alone” in what we face.
As His people, He’s not left us alone in this dark world.
His name is called “Emmanuel.”
“God is with us”

Thank You, Lord for being with us!
You walked the earth in the flesh, and even though You are now seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven… God, You have made a way to always be with us, You’ve promised never to leave us.
You are always near. ? You are always with Your people.
“The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.“—Psalm 145:18
You have gone before us, and You’ve taken care of all that is behind us, and You live within us.
We are surrounded by You. ?✨ And You are getting us through! ?☀️
Thank You for always reminding us of what we need reminding of, just like a good Father does.
Thank You, Father. ?
