STAY WITH ME

“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

The word FORSAKE isn’t a commonly used word today.  According to the dictionary, it means to abandon or leave completely. The thought of being forsaken leaves one desperate and hopeless.  Loneliness is one of those perceptions that eats away at our mind as well as our soul.  No matter how many surround us, when we feel abandoned, we feel utterly lost.

Jesus cried out to His Father from the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”  It was at that point in His earthly mission that He felt the pangs of death –  the loss of most of His followers – the complete separation from His Father – the internal struggle we all feel when there is no one to turn to.  At that moment, His humanity was being put to the test.  He was experiencing what we feel when faced with death.  Still, His humanity was united with His Godliness when He was able to overcome death on Easter Sunday.

He’s promises us, through His Holy Word, to never leave us.  He’s available 24/7, every day of every year during our walk on earth and also after we depart  this world. He will always be there.

What a comfort to know that we never have to walk alone – even though the world may be crumbling around us – even when it seems we have no one left who understands our physical, emotional or spiritual needs.  We have His promise, “Never will I forsake you.”

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
