My Companion

In the evening when I am out walking, I see people walking their dogs, couples walking together and as I walk by one of the homes, I see the cat (who apparently thinks he is a dog)that takes walks with his owner, sits by him when he sits on the porch and even sits by his feet while his master chats with someone along the way. I must admit I feel a little envious wishing I had a faithful companion to walk with me.

          Wait!…… I do! I do! He’s always there with me wherever I go! I am reminded of the song “In the Garden………He walks with me and he talks with me.”

          My step is a little lighter and my heart picks up the beat. I greet my fellow walkers with a wide smile and a cheery “Good Evening.”

          Now on my evening walks, I sing songs of praise as I walk along knowing I am not alone. I have a faithful friend that would never let me be alone because He wants to walk with me in sweet, loving  fellowship. Thank you, Jesus.

Psalm 139:5-10 “You hem me in……….you have laid your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there your hand will guide me, your hand will hold me fast.”
