Not Just Close By

He had been there all her life.  He had walked beside her thru the hard times and laughed with her in the good times.  He longed for her to long for him.  He fought for her and with her even when she was not aware.  He stood in the gap and was the bridge that got her to the other side.  He ordered her steps.

Then she asked Him into her heart and she no longer walked alone.  She no longer walked by His side.  That day, they became one.  That day He moved in.  That day His steps became her steps.  That day His vision became her vision.  That day His hands became her hands.  That day His heart became her heart.  That day His strength became her strength.  That day she was transformed from the inside out.  That day she was no longer who she was.  She truly was brand new.

She invited Him in and she will never be the same.

27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:27
