God’s everywhere. (It’s silly to try to hide.)

I know that
God knows me
And focuses
On me with
Attentive awareness
There’s nothing
I can hide
From Him.
Even if I tried
Everything’s out
In the open.
He even knows
My secret pride.
Nothing can be denied.
He knows what I decide
Before I choose it.
He knows my every stride
Before I take it.
He knows when I’ve cried
Before a tear falls.
He knows where I reside
Even when I conceal it.
He knows when
I’m not on His side,
Yet He abides
Ever by my side.
Even when I refuse
To confide,
He knows the
Self-embraced lies
That I’ve hidden
Deep inside.
No matter how low
That I slide,
He knows
And cares
And calls me
To come to Him
As His bride.
O, how deep and wide
Is His love for me.

In the middle of all your distractions Jesus is continually trying to get your attention. What’s Jesus doing in you right now?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
