A Promise to Remember
Remember, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.
MATTHEW 28:20 NTME
I was with you yesterday—
In your naiveté, I guided you perfectly.
In your sincerity, I blessed you abundantly.
In your trouble, I sustained you gracefully.
In your rebellion, I convicted you mercifully.
In your doubts, I reassured you tenderly.
In your sickness, I healed you miraculously.
In your worry, I watched over you closely.
I am with you today—
In your sin, I forgive you compassionately.
In your discouragement, I buoy you helpfully.
In your sadness, I cheer you nearly.
In your responsibilities, I empower you supernaturally.
In your frustrations, I calm you peacefully.
In your loneliness, I accompany you lovingly.
I will always be there for you—
When the night depresses, I will be your Bright Morning Star.
When the morning dawns, I will still be with you—faithful as sunrise.
I will never leave you on your own, to your own devices.
I rose from the dead—I can help you with your big and little problems.
I triumphed over the tomb—I can give you victory over bad habits.
Every heartbeat, breath, step, hour, day, season—I will stand by you.
Until the end of the present earth—and beyond—I am by your side.
I am your Travel Guide—follow My directions carefully.
I am your Greatest Friend—enjoy the pleasure of My company.
No force can ever cancel My love for you—I guarantee it.
In sunshine and shadow, pain and pleasure, doubt and confidence,
you can be absolutely sure I am there for you—I promise.
