Afternoons with Sonny

You Are Never Alone With God

By February 8, 2022 No Comments

How are you doing today? Maybe it’s been a tough one, maybe you’re walking through something right now, maybe you feel like God is far away. Well, I want pull back the curtain and let you in on a conversation I had with God recently. Maybe you’ll see he’s closer than you think.

 

Me: Okay, God, here’s the thing. I’m scared. I’m trying not to be, but I am. 

God: I know. Want to talk about it? 

Me: Do we need to? I mean, you already know. 

God: Remember how when your daughter was young and woke up running down the hall to your bedroom? 

Me: Yes. 

God: You were still awake, so when you heard her running, you started calling out to her before he even got to you… remember? Do you remember what you called out to her? 

Me: I said, “You’re okay! You’re okay! You’re okay! I’m here.” 

God: Why did you call to her? Why didn’t you just wait for her to get to your room? 

Me: Because I wanted her to know that I was awake, and I heard her, and she didn’t have to be afraid until she reached the end of the dark hallway. 

God: Exactly. I hear you, my child. I hear your thoughts racing like feet down the dark hallway. There’s another side to all of this. I’m there already. I’ve seen the end of it. And I want you to know right here as you walk through it all, you’re okay. I am here for you. 

Me: *crying* Can we sit together awhile? Can we just sit here a minute before I go back to facing it all? 

God: There’s nothing I’d love more.
