"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you."
Picture the most tragic, sorrowful, bleak, dark day of your life. God was not only with you, He was holding you close, pouring His light into you. God will NEVER leave you! Even when He feels so distant, when you can't hear His voice, when you feel lost, when scripture brings obligation and not comfort, when worship becomes noise, when each cell of your body screams for relief - our great Heavenly Father is there. Though you might fight Him, or grieve Him, He can't help but love you and want to be with you. You are His beloved, precious child, and He is a good, perfect Father - He cares for you and won't let you out of His sight to ensure that you are never alone. May we be thankful for the Spirit's presence always!
