Your light will break forth like the dawn,

your healing will quickly appear;

then your righteousness will go before you, 

and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. 

Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;

you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

Isaiah 58:8-9 


I am thankful that God says HERE AM I.

I am thankful that I can kneel.


Hey God, I feel utterly helpless right now. There are so many things out of my control. They leave me reeling.

All I can do is get on my knees. I want to wear them out. I called to you and I can be assured that you heard me. 


You will be my rear guard. If I stumble, if I fall backwards, if I am reeling you are right behind me to catch my fall. You will ease me back to standing. You will make my footsteps firm.

The very second I call to you.


Here am I. Here am I. Right here: in front of you, behind you and all around you.

You NEVER leave my proximity ~

  1. Ok. I’m back. Sorry about that. You can tell I don’t really comment much on other people’s blogs. (do you feel honoured?)

    Hope you don’t fall backwards too much this week. Glad we have a great God who can be with us through it all.

    • I am honored! What would I do without Diane? We need your wise and caring heart! I am glad we have a great God too. Computers make me angry sometimes too. I always pretend I’m going to smash it to bits 🙂 It would feel so good…

  2. I love this post!!! I always doodle on my homework assignments and the word I have been doodling lately is “kneel”. It is so easy for me to forget to kneel sometimes, but then I remember how powerful it truly is.

Thank you so much for your comment!
