YOU ARE NEAR ME LORD...

You are Near me LORD, 
as I sit here in my garden, 
listening to the world go by.
You are Near me LORD, as my finite mind clamours for my attention -
Whilst on 'eagles wings' with You I long to fly!

You are Near me LORD, 
when I feel that I've rarely been part of the churche's 'chosen few'.
You are Near me LORD, Pouring Your Healing Oil of Gilead upon my aching heart - 
Gently Encouraging me to keep my eyes fixed on You!

You are Near me LORD,
when the creeping, ugly evil, loosed in this world, presses in on every side...
You are Near me LORD, Speaking Your Love, Bringing Your Peace -
Enabling me to choose in Your Wonderful Presence to Abide!

You are Near me LORD,
when no one else SEEMS interested in what I have to say.
You are Near me LORD, Leading, Guiding me -
Reminding me that in those instances, the best thing that I can do is pray!

You are Near me LORD, 
when all about me speaks confusion and doubt.
You are Near me LORD, The Gossamer Touch of Your Holy Spirit - even at Its Gentlest -
Is enough to put fear to route!!!
