With You I Will Always Be

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 8:12

 

Many of us go through this life experiencing one change after another.  Changes in jobs, relationships, etc.  Some of us see very few changes it seems.  We stay in the same job, the same relationship, for what seems like forever.

But whether the changes are many or few, they are still a change when they come.  One day, everything is different, and there is both excitement and fear.

One thing never changes; God with us.  Regardless of the changes we go through, God never changes.  And, on top of that, He is always with us.

 

It finally comes one day; when nothing is the same.

The rules haven’t changed but you’re playing a new game.

The slate is wiped clean and you have a new start.

Both excitement and fear are pulling at your heart.

 

You’ve made your decision; you’ve made your choice.

But still you can hear that small, questioning voice.

Is this thing correct?  Am I going the right way?

Will I regret where I am when I wake the next day?

 

But then there’s another voice you begin to hear.

It sounds as if someone is standing very near.

“I am with you always and I’ve opened this door.

There’re things I have for you which lie in store.

 

If only you will trust in Me and take My hand.

When the journey gets rough I will help you stand.

In your weaknesses, it is I who will make you strong.

When trials come, I will show you right from wrong.

 

When things seem to go dark I will be your light.

When the enemy tries to blind you I will be your sight.

 Regardless of your journey, an unchanging fact you’ll see,

That you are not alone; with you I will always be.”
