I AM WITH YOU!

My mind was full of noise;

and manufactured worry that would not go away!

So despite my hesitation

I chose to sit a while.

I knew it was a lovely day

but couldn’t take it in.

I worried that I needed to . . .

oh, if only!

YES, BUT . . .Oh, but I can’t!

oh, but everybody else . . .

“Child. . . ”

“CHILD!!!!” still louder,

Seeing noone,

I was certain of trouble,

but then I heard

“I AM!

my gaze was toward the ripples

I simply did not see

as my anxiety grew.

“Child, I AM called you here to spend an hour with me!

Lay aside your worries!  Give them to me!”

I felt His embrace and finaly I knew!

I gazed at the small waves

gently flowing by

and the droplets were like my tears

BUT I DID NOT KNOW I CRIED.

“Now lay those worries down and leave them for me! . . .

Trust them to me, then sit quietly and know the

strength and intimacy of my love for you!

It is living in your heart,

as am I!”

A gente kiss and I closed my eyes

and knew!

He will ALWAYS give me

everything I need!
