He's Always With Me

2009 was a good year for me and that's because it was surely a roller coaster ride. It was a good year not only because I received so much blessings but also because amidst the trials that came, my faith is still very much alive. I cried so much last year because of my disappointments, confusion, impatience, doubts, fears and so much more negative feelings. However, it is so great to know that Jesus has always been there for me during those days.

For me, to have confidence about my own beliefs and a strong faith to our Lord are the best blessings I had ever received. A year is just too much to shake off someone's faith and I am glad my 2009 ended with my faith still intact. I often reflect about that thought-anytime of the day, something can happen that will change my relationship with God. I'm just glad that my relationship with HIM changed for the better. I'm so thankful that He gave me strength to face my trials last year and He twitched my heart to bring me back to His path every time I feel so down that I feel like doubting too much. I am grateful that when I had to face a problem, His love immediately took over my fear and worries.

Scottish mathematician, theologian, and preacher Thomas Chalmers (1780–1847) wrote:“When I walk by the wayside, He is along with me. When I enter into company, amid all my forgetfulness of Him, He never forgets me. . . . Go where I will, He tends me, and watches me, and cares for me.”

I still get weak at times and I still feel down but it's a great comfort to know that He's always there. He never forgets. He looks after me. Jesus loves me so much that He'll NEVER leave my side. He said, "Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go". —Genesis 28:15

Last year, I read from my previous post that I was afraid to face 2009 and I wasn't willing to leave 2008. Guess what? It's another blessing to be brave enough to face another year. It feels so great to be excited to let go and let God my life, my days and my years. It feels so great to be confident with His plans. I know He loves me so much and He only wants the best for me. I am in good hands. I had completely placed my life in My Father's Hands.

My 2009 was about complete surrender and learning to leave my failures, hurts and selfishness behind. I wonder what 2010 is all about; but one thing for sure, I am excited to live and enjoy every detail of it.

As I travel down life’s pathway,
Jesus keeps me day by day;
And although the road is winding,
Yet, with Him I need not stray.

Hi Paige, I can feel your love and excitement through your words. Sounds a little like "being tried in the fire, but you're coming out gold!"

"Though He slay me, I will trust Him."

No matter what, God always, ALWAYS has your back! Happy New Year, and God bless!

Beautiful verse. You have begun posting verses. Write more.

You need self confidence to feel The Lord looks after you. I am happy you do. The sinner won't feel that. We strengthen that feeling by every little act of love we do. Don't believe in psychology: Your nature is splendid. Your heart is good. When crucifying the flesh there is nothing to worry about. And know: Good works are good only if we are natural doing them. You must be nice to be pretty. Nice and pretty. I believe you are nice and pretty. Stay cool. :-)
