Most beautiful Heavenly Father,
As I sat down in the quiet cool of the morning on my back patio to spend time with You, I was immediately surrounded by You- the Great I AM! Encompassed by Your immeasurable presence, the word “always” kept popping up in my heart:
*You are ALWAYS here! Even when I am busy and involved in work, play, circumstances…You never ever leave me. You are always waiting for me to be still with You and realize who You are. Your thoughts never leave me even when my thoughts wander from You!
*You are ALWAYS the Great I AM! Your power and authority never change or lessen. You made all the gargantuan galaxies and tiniest molecules- even those we have never discovered yet! Everything that is- was made by Your word, and everything that lives came to life through Your holy breath! Nothing or no one has more power than You- all things must answer to You!
*You are ALWAYS love! Your love is so much more than we can ever wrap our feeble minds around. Your love determines all that You do…for You are love! Your love is far more powerful than a mother’s love, a daddy’s love, a romantic love, a friendship love, a grandparent’s love. In fact, we would never be capable of love if not for You!
*You are ALWAYS at work! You are always making things new; molding and creating us to be all You know we can be- all You designed us to be! Yet You see fit to limit Your power to work within the confines of our free will (which You saw fit to give us!) You are ALWAYS knitting together our mistakes, weaknesses and even the hard situations in our lives to make something far more beautiful and glorious than we could ever imagine or think to ask for!
*You are ALWAYS faithful! You never forget us; never leave us; never reject us; never give up on us…It is Your deepest desire that not even one should perish but have eternal life that You freely give to us even when we were sinners. You long to have every single one of Your precious children with You forever and ever…yet out of love, You give us a choice. You are faithful to us ALWAYS- even when we are not faithful to You.
*You are ALWAYS waiting…waiting for us to realize who made us, who loves us and who completes us. You wait for us to accept the newness of eternal life given through Jesus Christ. You wait for us to grow in maturity and holiness of Christ. You wait for us to stop and be still with You- to spend time sharing our hearts and lives with You. You wait for us to learn through all the circumstances we go through. You wait for us to share Your hope. And You wait for the day we leave this earth and step into the true Home You have prepared for us…where there will be no more waiting because we will share in the unspeakable joy of being with You ALWAYS!
