It's a little Church-y

This past Saturday I had a most amazing experience. I know that our Heavenly Father knows each of us individually. He knows us like our fathers know us. But unlike dads that are several hundred miles away and are only updated through facebook statuses, blog updates, and phone calls, our Heavenly Father knows every detail at that exact moment. He knows what we need. He knows exactly when we need that confirmation that He is there. Even when we aren't asking for help or to know that He is there listening He reminds us that He will always be there if we want Him there or not. By small and simple things he reminds us we are never alone. At times where we feel we need Him more than anything and don't feel as if He is there, He is. Like a father He wants to help, solve the problem, take the pain away, but what would we learn? nothing, so He steps back and is there to comfort and at random times He gives us a little push or has someone step in, or we hit every green light in traffic. Some may say you're lucky, and it might be a little bit of luck or timing with the lights, but He knows that maybe hitting all green lights or having a friend, who you haven't seen in a while call you out of the blue might brighten your day. Its the little things like this that remind us that He is there, just like our earthly dad is there to remind us that 'its just money' when we fail a class or that he remembers a random tickle spot and tells your friends. Michael McLean has a song 'You're Not Alone' all the youtube videos I've found are pretty lame so here are just a few of the lyrics.

YOU’RE NOT ALONE,

YOU ARE LOVED IN WAYS THAT CAN’T BE SHOWN, YOUR NEEDS ARE KNOWN

AND WHEN YOU CRY YOU’RE JUST LETTING GO A HEARTACHE DEEP INSIDE

SO TOMORROW THERE’LL BE SUNSHINE AND SKY AND LOVE CLOSE BY

WELL I KNOW THAT IT’S NOT EASY, BUT I KNOW THAT IT WON’T LAST

CAUSE ONE WHO LOVES YOU MORE THAN ME

IS SENDING BLESSINGS FAST

YOU’RE NOT ALONE…SAY IT ONE MORE TIME, "I'M NOT ALONE"


DISCLAIMER - I am happy, not sad or depressed, this is supposed to be uplifting!
