Jesus Is Always With You
I was blessed with my 1st son, David, 6 years ago; he is a wonderful boy. He
listens to me and obeys me, whatever I teach him he never forgets, and he holds
onto it like a treasure. So I felt impressed in my heart that I needed to
speak with him more about the Lord, so that he can always have the fear of the
Lord and the love of the Lord in him. When he was about three he use to be
very scared of lightning, so I told him not to be afraid and that Jesus is in
his heart, and that whenever he was afraid all he had to do was touch his
heart with his hand and say "Jesus I love you and thank you for being with me."
Ever since then, whenever David was scared I saw him touch his heart with his
hand and then smile.
Last month I was going through a lot of turmoil -- my husband had been laid off
from his job for 5 months, we were getting financially drained, and I was
totally confused and overwhelmed. So I put both of my two boys (I have a 6-
month-old boy also) to bed and went into the living room, and was waiting for my
husband who had gone to the store. I was feeling lonely and I just started
crying my eyes out. Then I heard the bedroom door opening and I saw David
walking towards me. I immediately wiped my tears and smiled at him. He knew
something was wrong as he walked up to me and said, "Mommy are you alright?
Are you afraid of something?" I said, "yes honey mommy is a little afraid."
Immediately he took my right hand and placed it on my heart and said, "Jesus is
with you mommy, He is always with you, donít be afraid, He will take care of
you mommy, and I will take care of you too."
When I heard him tears of joy just flooded my face. I hugged him, and then I looked
upward to Heaven and said, "Father forgive me, for I was NOT looking at my
blessings, joy, and your security, but instead I was looking at the storm.
Thank you Lord for being there for me."
Jesus is always with you and He will take care of you. Next time you are
afraid, just place your hand on heart and you will immediately know that Jesus
is there for you. Remember Isaiah 43:5, where the Lord says: "Do not be
afraid, for I am with you . . ."
