Tonight

Tonight, I asked Him: "Lord, are You really always with me?"

He answered: "I AM with you even until the end of the age, until eternity beckons, and then, I AM there with you, too." (Matt. 28:20)

Tonight, I asked Him: "Lord, where do You go, then, in the times when it is so hard for me to find You?"

He answered: "I AM not gone, though I may hide Myself from you for a time so that, like the precious child you are, you may experience the joy of seeking and finding Me." (Matt. 7:7)

Tonight, I asked Him: "Lord, when I feel overwhelmed, when I am exhausted by the weight of the world, when I feel like I can't even summon the strength to move, how will I find You then?"

He answered: "I AM the One who comes beside you at your weakest moment and does not leave. (Prov. 18:24) I AM your traveling companion when you question life. (Luke 24:15) I AM the faithful watchman Who will meet you in Gethsemane and kneel beside you to pray. (Mark 14:38) And I AM the Good Shepherd Who will sooth your wounds (Ps. 23:3), set your feet on solid ground (Ps. 40:2), and, when you can find no solid ground to stand on, will summon My angels to lift you up as on eagle's wings (Is. 40:31)."

Tonight, I asked Him, and He answered me. Tonight, He reminded me of the beauty of Himself, that all my questions had but one answer, and that the answer He gave is perfectly complete and sufficient for all my problems:

I AM.
