God

I AM THERE     by James Dillet Freeman            Do you need Me?  I am there.  You cannot see Me, yet I am the light you see by.  You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.   You cannot feel Me, yet I am the power at work in your hands.  I am at work, though you do not understand My ways.    I am at work, though you do not recognize My works.   I am not strange visions.   I am not mysteries.  Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know Me as I am, and then but as a feeling and a faith.   Yet I am there   Yet I hear.   Yet I answer.   When you need Me, I am there.   Even if you deny Me, I am there.   Even when you feel most alone, I am there.    Even in your fears, I am there.   Even in your pain, I am there.  I am there when you pray and when you do not pray   I am in you, and you are in Me.   Only in your mind can you feel separate from Me, for only in your mind are the mists of "yours" and "mine."   Yet only in your mind can you know Me and experience Me.   Empty your heart of empty fears.    When you get out of the way, I am there.   You can of yourself do nothing, but I can do all.  And I am in all.  Though you may not see the good, good is there, for I am there.    I am there because I have to be, because I am.   Only in Me does the world have meaning;  only out of Me does the world take form; only because of Me does the world go forward.  I am the law on which the movement of the stars and the growth of living cells are founded.  I am the love that is the law's fulfilling.   I am assurance.   I am peace.   I am oneness.  I am the law that you can live by.   I am the love that you can cling to.  I am your assurance.   I am your peace.   I am one with you.   I am.   Though you fail to find Me, I do not fail you.  Though your faith in Me is unsure, My faith in you never wavers, because I know you, because I love you.    Beloved, I am there.

i thought the above poem would be helpful to some    i couldn't get it written in poem form, so i copied it as such.    bless you all..

I love this poem... have been browsing your entries, following a link from a comment you left in someone's journal, and now I can't remember whose journal it was, and it really doesn't matter anyway! I went back to your first few entries, and didn't leave any comments because I was really just reading to find out a little more about you. This entry is titled 'God', so it got my attention because God calls me His... and then I read your words here, and I had never read it before. First time... but I love it. I think I'll be back... you have a great life story to tell. bea
