ARE YOU THERE
“Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?”
Psalm 10:1 KJV
Every time I read this verse, it reminds me of the story I read about a husband and wife who were driving down the highway. The wife said to her husband who was driving the car. “We don’t sit next to each other any more”. The husband replied and said to his wife. “I haven’t moved”.
Have you ever felt like Jesus has left you or have you ever asked Him “are You there”? Jesus hasn’t moved. He is still with us. We are the ones who sometimes move away from Him. I invited Jesus into my heart on August 14, 1980 and He has never left me, not even for one minute. He is so faithful.
I don’t know what is going on in your life. I don’t know all of the heartaches and trials you are going through but Jesus knows and He cares about you. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Jesus is waiting with open arms for you to come to Him.
May we always stay close to Jesus. He loves us so much that He died for us and He wants to help us. He already knows what we are going through but He wants us to share our heart with Him. Allow Jesus to help you and carry you through all the dark valleys in your life.
