You’re Always There With Me

You’re always there with me
Reach out your hand when I am down and
You lift me in your arms
Carry me
when I can’t walk
Talk for me when no words come
Give me life when I have none
Remind me of your son
Remind me of your son
Kingdom come

You’re always there with us
Reach out your hand when we are down
You lift us high in your arms
Carry us
when we can’t walk
Talk for us when no words come
Give us hope when we have none
Remind us of your son
Remind us of your son
Rainbows come

After the storm
After Noah
A promise was born
Never again would you make us run
Never again would we need to flee
“If you place your trust” you said “in me!”
“If you place your trust in me!”

I’m always there with you
Reach out my hand when you are down
And I lift you in my arms
Carry you
when you can’t walk
Talk for you when no words come
Give you love when you feel none
Remind you of my son
Remind you of my son

Jesus comes
Again He comes

“If you place your trust,
Just trust in me!”

Although this was originally written as a song of praise and thanks, I have used it many times since, both as a song and a piece of meditative writing.
As with virtually all my writing of this ilk, there is far more to these words than I could ever write in my own strength and with my own hand.
It was dropped in my lap, given to me that I may share it with others.
And so I share it with you now, with a prayer that those who need to hear its message, will indeed be touched in some way that I can neither perceive nor know.
May it bless you.

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.
