Because You Are There

If I am walking in the mountains
To see the view from atop the highest peaks
Beautiful lush valleys filled with forest leaves
Blue sky above with a wisp of cloud in the distance
The air cool and a slight breeze
As I still myself I can hear your voice
Because you are there

If I am walking in the lowest valley
Lush plants and trees all around me
Flowers springing up wild that provide color
Red, yellow, orange, blue, white
So beautiful
Adorning to the pleasant trail I am walking on
Birds sing their songs of praise from the trees above
Glorious trees springing forth from the lush soil below
A brook gently babbling in the background
The squeal of locusts here and there
As I still myself I hear your voice
Because you are there.

If I am out in the midst of the largest sea
Waves gently rolling
Lapping against the sides of the boat
Rocking it slightly as I sit
A soft breeze keeps the waves coming
It is night and the stars shine brightly
The constellations are all assembled
A shooting star occasionally darts across the sky
There is not a sound to be heard
Except the waves rolling in
So I still myself to hear your voice
Because you are there

No matter where I am
Or what I am doing
No matter what trial I am facing
Or where I need healing
No matter what I might be thinking
Or how I might be running
No matter where my heart is
Or where I think I’m going
No matter how strong I am
Or how prideful I’ve become
No matter what your are there

You are always with me
Always beside me
Always before me
Always behind me
Always for me
Always guiding me
Always healing me
Always helping me
Always providing for me
Always protecting me
Always watching over me
Always my Savior
Always my redeemer
Always my King of Kings
Always my Lord of Lords
Always loving me
Because you are there

There are not many words I can add to what this poem already says. He is with me all the time, every day, everywhere. He will never leave me alone, no matter what stupid things I have done. He is our loving heavenly Father and we are safe in His arms.

Isaiah 43 King James Version
43 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
