God is no stranger in a faraway place
He’s as close as the wind that blows on my face
It’s true I can’t see the wind as it blows
But I feel it all around me & my heart surely knows
That God’s mighty hand can be felt every minute
For there is nothing on earth that God isn’t in it
The sky and the stars, the waves and the sea
The dew on the grass, the leaves on a tree
Are constant reminders of God and his nearness
Proclaiming his presence with crystal-like clearness
So how could I think God was far far away
When I feel him beside me every hour of the day
And I’ve plenty of reasons to know God’s my friend
And that his is one friendship that time cannot end
(poems of faith by Helen Steiner Rice)
I’ve always loved poems, I’m not sure where it began , I just know I’ve always been drawn to poems, this poem talks about how God is always near & nothing can separate us from him
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life,nor angels,nor principalities,nor powers, nor things present,nor things to come,nor height,nor depth,nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord
Do you have a made-up mind today that nothing shall separate you from God?

A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

(Ps.16:6-7) The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup thou maintainest my lot;the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places yea I have a Godly heritage
(Eph.6:13) Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all to stand
(Luke 10:27-28) And he answering said thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy strength and with all thy mind and thy neighbor as thyself;And he said unto him thou hast answered right, this do and thou shalt live
(Ps.119:88)Quicken me after thy loving kindness,so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth
