Though I’ve felt Your closeness at times, I’m realizing that Your presence is not just an emotional experience. Even when I’m down and in a bad way I know with certainty that You are here because You promised: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” I know You are there because I have Your word on it.
My child, I Am here!
Thank You for sticking with me in the both good and bad times. You are the One Person in my life that I can fully depend on. Even if others abandon me, You are there for me. You are my Faithful Friend.
Be near, oh God … be near, Your nearness is my good. (To prepare your heart, consider praying through the Listening to God Guidelines.) Empower me to come fully present to You as I worship You through this song.
