(Psalm 23:4 NIV ‘84) “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;…


Today someone was born; and Jesus was there.  Today someone died; and Jesus was there.  Today someone traveled, someone went to the hospital, someone went to work, someone went on a first date, someone got married, someone started a new job, someone went to a sporting event… and Jesus was there. 


Whatever you did (or will do) today, Jesus was (or will be) there.  Whatever you will do tomorrow, Jesus will be there. 


Many times knowing that Jesus is there makes us cringe.  He SAW that horrible thing I did, He HEARD those terrible words I spoke, He KNEW those sinful thoughts in my mind, for He was there. 


And yet, He stayed!  He stayed with me!  He stayed… and He forgave me!  He stayed to guide me.  He stayed to strengthen me, uphold me and lead me back to Him. 


And He will never leave!


Thankful for Jesus’ presence, just like you,
