God Is Always With Us

by Greg Gross

Hi, Church Family. My name is Greg.

Every year I get a calendar for the year. Last year I went to “Hearts and Minds” to get a calendar. I found one with the poem, “Footprints”; this poem tells me God is always with me, no matter what happens in my life.

When I was 14, I decided I didn’t need God. A lot of bad things started to happen to me. That’s when He put His arms around me and carried me. That was some time ago.

As I live and love my Jesus, I find out that things still happen. Life is not fair. Two years ago I lost my wife to cancer. As I was leaving the hospital that morning, a song popped into my head from Sidewalk Prophets—“Soldier On”.

I believe He was telling me don’t worry, He’s got me.

Last year was a little different and this year we will see. Don’t forget the poem “Footprints”. He does truly love us.
When I got baptized, Pastor Todd gave me Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your path straight.”

As I read the Bible, other verses pop out at me…like Joshua 1-9: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Lord, thank you for being with us, in every part of our lives. Thank you for loving us. Help us to not be discouraged and to always look towards You. Amen.
