I Am Nearer

I AM NEARER  than you think, richly present in all your moments.  You are connected to me by Love-bonds

that nothing can sever.  However, you may sometimes feel alone, because  your union with Me is invisible. 

Ask ME to open your eyes , so that you can find Me everywhere.  The more aware you are of My Presence,

the safer you feel.  This is not some sort of escape from reality: it is tuning in to ultimate reality.  I am far 

more Real than the world you can see, hear, and touch.  Faith is the confirmation of things we do not see

and the conviction of their reality, perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the scenes.

God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.  “For in Him we live and move and have our being.”  As some of your own poets have said, 

“We are His offspring.” Acts 17:27

Now faith is the assurance ( the confirmation, the title deed)  of the things (we) hope for , being the proof of things (we) do not see and the conviction of their reality (faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.  Hebrews 11:1
