Wednesday in the Word-His Face is Towards Me

When we built our house years ago we decided to be sure that our three daughters each had their very own bedrooms. Prior to that our two youngest daughters shared a bedroom together. They had become so used to sleeping together that this transition was a little hard for them to grasp at first.  

I noticed one morning that the girls was each in their own bedroom but was laying half way in the hallway with heads pointing towards one another and holding hands.

As long as their faces were turned to one another and their hands touched they somehow knew everything would be okay. 

You know, sometimes it seems that God is so near but at other times we experience insecurity and uncertainty when we face challenges that seem to zap every ounce of strength that we have. Sometimes our faith is being tested through those moments, hours, or even years of life.

The Lord keeps me reminding me that my true security is found in Him regardless of my situation.  He is my strength when I am tired. He is my rock when the ground is unstable. He is my my life boat on troubled sea. He is MY EVERYTHING.

What a friend we have in Jesus! How comforting to know that His FACE is ALWAYS towards me and His HAND ALWAYS has mine! 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Talking to my daughter last night about how there seems to be so much stress in our lives and those we know. I told her that we need to lean on Jesus. He is made strong during our weakness. He is who we need to turn to when we have trouble. Pray and tell Him your concerns for the situation (even though He knows already).
    Thank you for reminding us that He is always near especially in our time of need.

  4. Oh Cindy, what a beautiful reminder of God's faithfulness to us...of His face always being towards us. We all have those moments of insecurity and is comforting to know that we are secure IN HIM. May God bless you the remainder of this gorgeous autumn day!

  5. Hi Cindy, what a beautiful post of God's love. You always bring joy to the heart of us readers.
    Yes, our loving God is always near and faithful to our needs and fears. With HIM we need not worry.

    Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week.

  6. Your daughters had the right idea! Keep our face towards Him and hold His hand! BTW, what your daughters did is so sweet.

  7. Oh sweet Cindy, God bless you for this wonderful post, as I've been in great need of something like this. I've been upset with God lately, but yes, He's the only one that comforts me at the end.
    Thank you so much for sharing, you have touched me!
    Thank you for your sweet visit.

  8. Beautiful post Cindy and I loved the story about your girls. We all need to remember that he is our rock!

  9. LOVED this so much. Reminded me of our three girls (years before our adopted kids)...for a while they ALL shared a room cause they liked it better...and felt safe.



So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
