Jesus Is With You

The past had times of darkness
Some days were hard to bear
Other days held peace
A breath of fresh air
But looking back we can see
Jesus was always there

The present has some struggles
Some days are filled with fear
There are also many blessings
So much to hold dear
But we can rest assured
Jesus is always here

Of what’s to come in the future
We are not yet aware
There could be ups and downs
As we cling to the Lord in prayer
But one thing is certain
Jesus will be there

No matter what you went through in your past, no matter what you are going through now, and no matter what the future holds, please know that Jesus is always there for you. Jesus said to His disciples in Matthew 28:20, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” What a comforting verse this is, and one that we can hold onto as well. As long as you have accepted Jesus in your heart, you can be certain that He is there. (If you have not accepted Jesus in your heart, then I pray that today is the day you will do so. Please read the prayer on this page. This will be the best decision you have ever made.)

In my life, I have made many mistakes. Most of us will, because we are not perfect. But looking back over times that I regret, I can still see that Jesus was there, calling me out of the darkness, like calling Lazarus out of the tomb

In our preset lives, many of us are facing difficulties. It is part of living in a fallen world. But one thing we can hang onto is the beautiful truth that Jesus is with us every day. And even more than that, it says in Romans 8:34 that Jesus sits at God’s right hand interceding for us. Knowing this brings me so much peace. I know that no matter what I am facing, Jesus is seeing me through it all. And He does the same for you and all of God’s children.

I hate to admit that I have worries about the future. But Jesus tells us not to worry about the future. In Matthew 6:34, Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” We have to hand our fears over to Him, knowing that no matter what may come, Jesus will be with us.

Jesus should be a constant in our lives. He should be our default, not our last resort. It is vital to cling to Him, every moment of every day. When you do, you will walk every day with peace, knowing your life is in the hands of your precious Lord and Savior.

I pray you all have a Happy Easter, celebrating what matters most – the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  1. This is such a beautiful post. I love the written piece in the beginning. Yes Jesus is always there. What comfort and reassurance that brings.
    I must admit that I tend to worry about the future too and have to remind myself not to, so I take it to God in prayer and it helps me.
    Awesome word Bridget
    Blessings my dear friend 💙

    • I agree – it is a comfort to know that Jesus is always there. The enemy will be quick to whisper doubts in our ears, causing us to worry. We have to stand strong against his tactics and remember that our future is in the hands of Almighty God! When we look at it like that, we having nothing to fear. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Blessings to you too, dear friend!! ❤️

  2. Wonderful poem Bridget. 🙂

    I have worries about the future too. Too many. So I guess neither of us are women who laugh without fear of the future yet. That’s okay. God gives us time, lots of lessons and practice to make it to our goal. He is with us indeed. Keep sharing your comforting words and be blessed. ❤

    • Thank you! You bring up a good point about that Proverbs 31 verse! I had not thought about that. Thank you for pointing it out. When worries come along, we can remind ourselves of this verse and of God’s goodness. I like how you put that – “God gives us time, lots of lessons and practice to make it to our goal.” I am so thankful for His grace! Blessings, my friend ❤️
