a Re-Post of "I AM THERE"

the following was an early entry of mine.   i gained it from my foundations class at church   it was also left on the moon by the astronauts   although it should be in poem format, i have to figure out to dispay as such in this journal   maybe it just isn't possible   this was written by James Dillet Freeman    thought some of my new readers would enjoy it   a Great Reflection of God!  enjoy!

                                               I AM THERE

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 have it posted on my fridge so i can read it often and remind myself God is here.
