He is with you

Exodus 33: 14
My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.

I love home. Unless I am traveling, and even then I feel a sense of joy driving up our road, there is no place I would rather be. But work takes me away some times, and though I always appreciate God’s financial provision, I miss home. Tonight I am away for work and things started off sort of rough. Feeling sad and just wanting to be back home with those I love hit me pretty hard tonight. Then this verse came up on my phone: My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. It was like God was giving me a big hug.
You see. We forget sometimes that God loves us. We forget that He wants to be with us. He follows us wherever we go and surrounds us with His presence. When we pray we are speaking right to Him, and He is listening. The distance is never too great, the hour is never too late- He is always near by me, hearing my fears and needs. Why? Because He loves me. He loves you too. And wherever you are, wherever you go, He sends His presence with you.
