The Place for Jesus in My Day-To-Day Life

How can I tell you how important it is to be able to have someone on whom you can depend?  I am not speaking of a friend of the human kind, although, a true human friend is important when we need to lean on someone.  I am not speaking of a wife or husband, although, true loving and caring spouses are special partnerships that can be a comfort in hard times.  The only true someone who will never fail you because of other commitments, illness or death and on whom you can always depend is God, through Jesus Christ.

It took me 52 years to understand how important I was to Him.  So many times throughout those years, looking back, I see clearly certain circumstances that could have cost me my life, except He intervened.  Jesus walked between Satan and me throughout those years because God had a purpose for my life, and He became my savior, actually and Spiritually, years before I knew Him as my Savior, felt His forgiveness and gave my life to Him, completely.  My faith is entirely with and in Him.  What have I to lose with my life in His hands?

He stills walks with me everyday, only now, I know he is there.  He keeps His promise of being with me through whatever comes my way.  His Spirit surrounds me like a cool breeze or a warm blanket when my human weaknesses try to get the best of me.  His arms comfort me when my heart is heavy with sorrow.
He has led our family through a deep dark valley for over two years.  His voice was the light that showed us the steps we must take, and continually reminded us to keep our eyes on the blue skies above us - the Father's smile and welcome home, again.

I travel through each day with Him as my sunshine, a cool breeze or a comforting sound that seems to come from nowhere.  But, I know He is reminding me that He is as close to me as those things and even nearer, and all I need to do is trust Him.  If He loved me and took care of me when I chose to go my own way, how wonderful to know what He will do for me now that I have given my life into His care for as long as I live.
