From My Daily Meditation for the Circling Year by John Henry Jowett:
And we are to have joyful assurance of the companionship of our God "This shall they know; that I, the Lord their God, am with them." And in that precious assurance every other treasure is found! Only be sure of that and we shall walk about as kings and queens!
This is sometimes lost on me. I walk about in my human body, focusing on immediate concerns, forgetting that HE is with me. I miss the treasure. The world certainly doesn't have much to offer, but HE does and HIS created beauty does.
He offers the very finest companionship.
I agree with John Henry Jowett, that knowing of God's presence among us, we can walk about as queens and kings, feeling His honor and His love.
So, Queenie, know that HE is walking with you. If you don't believe in God (I'm not exactly sure what that looks like) He'll still show himself to you. He believes in YOU.
He doesn't just POOF! appear when I think of Him or remember Him. I don't make Him real by reminding myself of His realness. He IS. He said, "I AM".
Because He is SO present, I'd like to be more present, too. Now I don't have to rush about so much, but my mind tends to rush around and I'm not the world's best listener.
I'm going to start trying harder to still my buzzing self and listen. I'm going to try to look closer, too.
