God With Us

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” –which means, ‘God with us.'”~Matthew 1:23

An end-of-the-year practice I have done for several years now is to review my journal for the year that is coming to a close. Within those entries, I find God—I discover, sometimes re-discover, how God has been working in my life and has been there with me ALL the time, even when I didn’t realize it.

The end of the year is a precious time to draw close to God and curl up in His/Her lap and just be in that moment of intimacy with your Creator—the One who knows you, really knows you—and who is with you all the time. The end of one year and the impending beginning of a new year is the perfect time to rest in Our Lord’s arms and reflect on God’s presence with us ALWAYS.~Sue Marie

“It is important to know, though, … that God is always present, constantly at work and making an effort in us. … From God we get our power, our will, and our ability to understand.”~True Christianity (Rose) n. 74(3)
