Always With Us

Thursdays – Dawn’s Devotions for Writers
“I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
(Matthew 29:20 NIV)

Our Lord is always with us.

Always. We’re never alone.

I find that comforting. Do you?

When we’re standing up and advocating for what’s right and fair for ourselves and others, he’s at our side.

When we’re hurt or discouraged, he holds and comforts us.

When we’re sick, his hands touch our bodies with healing.

When we’re weary and don’t have the strength to go it alone, he carries us.

When we fear that we’ll fail, his presence gives us the courage to keep trying.

When daily worries weigh us down, he lifts the load.

When we feel lonely, he fills that void.

When we search for the right story or the message that he wants us to share, he provides our hearts with a burden and the words to write.

He’s with us when we nervously walk into a writers conference, wondering if anyone will talk to us. He’s there when try to pitch our story to an editor or agent, and we manage to only stumble over our words. He’s there when we receive the call that our story has been sold, and we move into the scary world of networking and marketing … hoping readers will like our work.

He waits with us for the right door to open … and when it does, he walks through it, leading the way.

He’s always watching over us.  Protecting us. Providing for us.

In all things—including our writing lives—he is always with us.
