The God Who Follows

 

Not easy to trust, you say? Try these ideas: Trust your faith and not your feelings. Your feelings have no impact on God’s presence. Measure your value through God’s eyes, not your own. God loves you, you are family, and he will follow you all the days of your life. See the big picture, not the small. It’s never too late to begin again. Perhaps your home and health have been threatened. The immediate result might be pain, but the long-term result might be finding a Father you never knew—a Father who will follow you all the days of your life.

 

God Gives Us Himself

 

God has followed us on our journey but, we’re quick to turn away. God is slow to anger; he’s determined to stay. Sometimes we don’t accept God’s gifts, but God still gives them. He gives us angels, not just pinned on a lapel, but placed on our path.

And most of all, God gives us himself. Even when we choose our hovel over his house and our trash over his grace, still he follows. Never forcing us, never leaving us. Patiently persistent, faithfully present. Using all of his power to convince us that he is who he is and that he can be trusted to give us new beginnings throughout our journey and, in the end, lead us home. Trust your new beginning to him, won’t you? Follow the God who follows you all the days of your life.
