Because He Said So


imageBecause He said so….

That’s how I  can know.

When I can’t see or hear or understand

When things seem upside down, backward or completely inside out

Even when nothing makes sense and the world has gone mad

That’s when I can know.

Because He said so….

I can know that He loves me

Because He said so.

When the image in the mirror does not please my fickle mind

When I’m certain that my fumbling efforts will never measure up

Even when I’ve fallen flat on my face in weakness or tripped over my own selfishness

That’s when I can know that He loves me.

Because He said so.

I can know that He’ll never leave me.

Because He said so.

When I feel completely alone in areas of uncertainty or struggle

When I place one timid foot over the threshold of a new endeavor or opportunity

Even when I have ignored or turned my face from Him

That’s when I can know that He’ll never leave me.

Because He said so.

I can know that He has a plan for me.

Because He said so.

When I can’t see my next move because I can’t even read the map

When what I thought was going to happen suddenly takes a major left turn

Even when my hopes are dashed, my heart is broken and my dreams don’t come true

That’s when I can know He has a plan for me.

Because He said so.

He is the very definition of Love and I am His.  He loves me.

Romans 8:37-39 – No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Abandonment is not in His vocabulary or DNA.  He will never leave me. 

Hebrews 13:5 – God has said, “Never will I leave you;  never will I forsake you.”[

Everything He does in me, around me, for me has purpose and meaning.  He has a plan for me.

Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
