We’re “never left to go it alone here or hereafter”

“So shall it be at last, in that bright morning, When the soul waketh and life’s shadows flee; O in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning, Shall rise the glorious thought, I am with Thee.” Harriet Beecher Stowe (1855)

And we’re never going to be abandoned either, never left to go it alone here or hereafter. When “life’s shadows flee,” we’ll awake to encounter another bright morning, one “fairer than daylight dawning,” just as Stowe described it. In a flood of love and inspiration, we’ll awake to our continuing consciousness, our “living soul” (Gen. 2:7). God’s tender presence and love will “still, still” surround us. We’ll say then as we say now, “I am with Thee.” (Living Calm, ©️2016, chapter 55)
