He said He would be there
if I got ill.
if I were late.
if I let others down.
if I were homesick.
if I forgot about a commitment.
if I did not get everything done.
if I did not look my usual.
if I were having a really tough time.
if I did not know what to do.
if I failed.
I was shocked, scared, surprised about that, because in all of these instances, I am vulnerable. It is not that I am not myself, I am just the myself that I do not usually expose the world to. But He said that even if, He would be there.
And because You said You would be there to extend Your hand, I can get back up, shake off the dust from my clothes, and get back on my path.
You said You would be there. I am not alone.
