He Has Always Been With Us!

I trust You.  I believe in You.  You are God.  You created the earth.  You lay with me from when I was just a single cell, a single fertilized cell!  And as I grew to 16 cells, You watched and formed.  And I started to look like my parents and like You, because I was created in Your image, and You shaped me, right there in my mother's womb!

You shared that small space with me!  You were in my mother with me!  You let me lay my head on Your shoulder!  You were the first one to hold me and let me curl my tiny fingers around Yours!

You gave me dark brown eyes and curly hair.  You gave me my mother's smile and my father's lips.  You gave me long legs and told me to be tall!  You touched my hands and blessed them so that one day I would do as You said in Isaiah 50:4, that "The Lord God gives me the right words to encourage the weary.  Each day He awakens me eager to learn His teaching."  (CEV)

You smiled at me.  You told me You loved me.  You nurtured me, and put something so holy into my heart that I knew, even when I wanted to die because I felt so unloved, that there was hope.  You always stopped me from making a big mistake.

Is deja vu real?  Did You show me my life before I was born?  Did You show me heaven?  Is it all my imagination when I start thinking about how You placed me at a certain spot at a certain time and changed my life?  I don't think so.

When You said You would never leave nor forsake me, You meant that from the moment I was conceived, didn't You?  It wasn't words of encouragement only for when I was an adult and going through hardship!  No!  It was during those sweet moments of sheer bliss when I got a home run or won the race, or heard my baby's heartbeat within me.  You were there when I passed my summer school classes and when I graduated, and when I could have died in a car accident.  You shielded me from a much greater harm!  You called Your angels to spread their wings around me and to turn my body just right so that I didn't break my neck.  It was You walking beside me when I was going home after dark keeping me safe.  It was You who made me courageous when I wanted to hide!  It was You who mended my broken heart time after time, and it was YOU who gave me a heart to forgive!  You, Jesus, only You!

You brought laughter into my life and showed me how good it feels!  You brought people who are fun and funny to me to be friends with so that I could have joy in my heart and smile and laugh, because a merry heart is good medicine!

Thank You!  Thank You!  Thank You!  I love You so much!

  3. What a wonderful messenger you are, Deidre. It is through such inspiring words that others are led to Christ. Just today I was relating to my husband how I have been blessed in the past few months to become part of such a great group of fellow Christians. Blessings to you each and every day!

    1. Thank you so much! I truly hope that people who are teetering on the edge find Christ, and if I can be the vessel He used, well, thank You, Lord for using me. It is my ministry. I also am so blessed to have a group of Christians to support and pray and get prayers from. God is so good for putting us all together! God bless you, Sharla!

  4. Deirdre,
    I cannot read these posts without shivering in the knowledge that you bring our blessed Father, Son and Holy Spirit right into your post, reaching inward and warming that spot in my heart where the Holy Trinity lives and comforts me. You are a true messenger of God and I am humbled by your words which seem to flow from His mouth.

    Love you. Micki

    1. Dear Micki,
      God speaks to all of us in different ways. With me it is through journaling. I have many things that He has told me that I want to post. I must give up the fear of man and put His words out there. Usually I post what He means to me, but some of the things He has told me are for people I don't know. Soon, I will begin. It is all part of my trusting Him. I am so glad that you are getting comfort from what I write. That blesses me so much! I love you too, Micki, and God bless you!!

  5. Deirdre, you continue to inspire me with your words. It is a reminder to be thankful for our blessings and that no matter when, where or what is happening in our lives God so loves us.
    Thank you for keeping that spirit alive in us all.

    1. I am so comforted to know that my words inspire you, Rosemary! I cannot begin to speak of how much it humbles me that I am being used in the only way I know how to minister to others. I am very grateful for the gift He has given me, and I also am inspired by Him! God bless you, and thank you!
