01: Noticing God's Presence

In the past, when others were not able to be for you, you feared that you were alone: unseen, unheard, unknown, and unloved. And so you carry with you the lingering suspicion that God is not with you and for you. But the One who can be trusted is not distracted or absent. Beloved, God is fully present to you in this moment and in all others. God sees you. God hears you. God knows you. God loves you. Aware of your past, your present, and your future, God sees what is hidden from others and even what is hidden from you. The One who loves you, and who is intimately familiar with your delicate places, is completely present to you. God is here now.
