There is an Eternal Love with you now and always.

Psalm 46:2-3

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress. Thus we do not fear, though earth be shaken and mountains quake to the depths of the sea.

“Ever-present.”

Is that how you experience God?

For many people, God was always viewed as far off –“watching us from a distance” as a popular song once said.

Or even worse…not even watching us…but somewhere far off in a distant heaven ignoring us.

However, the psalmist says God is not only “ever-present” but also “help in distress.”

God is actively present for our good.

When Moses asked for God’s name, God said: “I Am.”

God is “Always Here.”

Are you?

Are you focused on living in the now…or are you holding on to a past injury or worrying over something that is in the future?

God is present to you now and wants nothing more than to be with you now because you are God’s beloved child.

You are a reflection of the Divine Light.

And as St. Paul said, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Jesus was the incarnation of God’s love poured out for us.

So be at peace.
