ALWAYS THERE

I kept running from Him but He was there.

I kept cursing His name while in His care.

At times He used others to prove His care

But He was there, always there!

.

.

I guess you could call it a fling I had

But whatever you would call it, it was bad.

Like embracing the devil’s every dare

But God was there, always there!

.

.

A cliffhanger really, no foothold near.

No rope to hold me, I truly knew fear

But somehow I made it!  A foothold appeared!

Yes, God was there.  He was there!

.

.

Could ever a friend prove closer than He?

And if there was one I would want Him to be

My constant companion through here or there.

Only God was there, always there!

.

.

Though while having fun or while flying high,

Now this is it!  Now you will surely die!

Would you believe I was in His care?

Yes, He was there, always there!

.

.

With bullets singing their frightening song

And telling your gut, “Bud, you do not have long!”

Through thunderous roar, bombs bursting in air,

God was there, always there!

.

.

So, looking back now I do realize

Around every corner there lay a surprise,

Once more reprieve and not my demise.

God was there, always there!

.

.

Today I wonder, “How could it be?

Why was He there to take care of me?

And give His angels charge over me?

And why is He still always near here?”

Oh yes, He is there, always near!
