“When My Father and Mother Forsake Me, Then The Lord Will Take Me Up” — Psalm 27:10
Well, they did and He did. God kept His promise.
The primary way that I have known God through out my life has been experiential. I have experienced a very intimate, private, personal relationship with God.
I first became aware of God as a toddler in a crib; I was potentially about three years old at the time, but I didn’t know that this presence had a name; “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” “IAM,” or the infamous “Yahweh,” I was not familiar with. I didn’t know what or who God was, nor did I know that this being I sensed in the terror and confusion my life had become, was anything more than just being present…. if that makes sense.
There was comfort in it being there, but it wasn’t quite tangible to me because I couldn’t see it. I simply knew it was there, real, and that it cared; still it wasn’t doing anything about my situation. It wasn’t changing anything. I guess the best way to put what it was doing was that it was watching and letting me know something was there and I was comforted by its presence.
