Hi Charles,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful experience with our Father..What an awesome gift this is!

You said,

"many times when I have much on my heart I go for long walk and talk to the Lord about what's on my mind.  As I was thinking on the fact that this was indeed the first time I had spent the Christmas season away from friends and family the Lord made His presence so very real to me that I stood there with tears flowing from my eyes."

This was the very same thing I experienced, I just talked to Him, and asked so many questions and His presence just put me into peace..The Lord is really amazing :) It's always very overwhelming to hear it from other family in Christ.

God bless you Charles, and yes! He will never leave us :)

Love,

Ella

Dear Ella

 

Your wonderful post reminded me of the first time I spent Christmas with no one in my family within 600 miles (literally).  I was working at a homeless shelter in D.C.  I took a long walk over to the church I attended on Sundays.   There was some clean up to do in a lot neaxt to the church and I decided to just work on that . My pastor would have had a fit if he knew I was out there .

 

However, many times when I have much on my heartI go for long walk and talk to the Lord about what's on my mind.  As I was thinking on the fact that this was indeed the first time I had spent the Christmas season away from friends and family the Lord made His presence so very real to me that I stood there with tears flowing from my eyes.

 

  The Lord so gently and sweetly reminded me that since the day I accepted Him I would never again be truly alone inspite of what I may think or feel.  It was a treasure He gave to me that I would always have to comfort me in troubling times.

 

Thank you for sharing your experience and may God bless you and make you always aware that He will never leave you.
