I said to Him, Lord, I place my trust in You. And He said to me, Take my hand, and you need never fear the darkness.

Lord, I am a seeker.
I have studied Your word and
accept Your promises as truth.
I find myself at a place in my life
where You are as real to me as the air I breathe.

I no longer wander in darkness for
I have found You in sunshine and in rain
and in every breeze that blows.
I have only to open my eyes and my heart
to know You are there.

I see You in the eyes of those I meet each day.
I hope also, in time, to see You when I look in my mirror.
I pray for Your patience and understanding.
I have a long way to go,
but thankfully, I no longer travel alone.

I have learned that faith doesn't put an end to all sorrow.
It provides, instead, a shoulder to cry on
and hands that reach out to help carry the burden.
And although the pain can still be felt,
I know that it cannot consume me.

I am grateful for blessings bestowed;
I have not earned them.
Today, I can stand on the mountain top
and have no fear of the valley,
for You are with me.

If you trust me, you are really trusting God. For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. I have come as a Light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer wander in the darkness. John 12:44-46

Even though I cannot see You, I know You are there. I feel you. It came to me that You are, indeed as vital as air. Although air can be felt, it cannot be seen in ordinary circumstances; but if you pump it into a pliable container (such as a balloon), it rises to the occasion. Perhaps that is what You do with our hearts when we grant You control.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
America will only be the land of the free so long as it is the home of the Brave
