Day Nineteen

But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me;
O My Strength, hasten to help Me!
-Psalm 22:19

Jesus refers to the Father as His Strength. He shows us that even in the worst of circumstances, He still can place His trust on the Father. It is still His will that gets done, not ours. I think that’s pretty cool.

I wonder...is it the Lord who is far from us...or we who are far from Him? Is it His attention we have to obtain...or is it our attentions that wander from Him? Is it His presence that strays from us...or do we stray from Him?
I can think of no better place to be than in the presence of my Lord. As good as it may get in the "here and now"...it cannot compare to being in His Presence.
How is it, then, that I don't stay there? O Lord, keep me close!!
