God is here.

We've been to the mountaintop
We've seen the glory of our God
He is here in the valley low
He's here I feel it in my bones
Our God here and now
We are the body of our God
{From "Mountaintop" by The City Harmonic}

God is here. Right here. Wherever you are. The Creator of it all didn't just walk away from his masterpiece. Oh no, he's perfecting it. Moment by moment. Life is a process.

When the house is quiet and thoughts come freely, he is there.

When one kid walks and talks so loudly first thing in the morning it's a miracle the other kid isn't woken, he is there.

When the phone rings with noise that a rental house toilet is overflowing, he is there.

When friends text and email and ask how you are, he is there.

When lunch is eaten on the go, he is there.

When the kids run and phone rings and questions come and dinner isn't ready, he is there and all the time in the world is actually his.

When the quiet returns, he is still there.

When the next steps are hard to find, he is there, gradually lighting the way.

When sitting finally comes among all the hustle, he is there, ready to carry the burden.

When the peace doesn't make sense, he is there because he's the only one who gives that kind of peace.

When conflict brews outside, he is there, inside with you.

When a friend is recovering from surgery, another is working so much you are struggling to connect and another is overcoming a miscarriage, he is there, hoping to soothe their souls too.

When two friends are trying to talk but a boy neither knows is interrupting with "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," he is there, speaking over the momentary chaos.

When you're hungry or tired or unsure what you should do, he is there, feeding your soul.

He is there in the songs. He is there in the decisions. He is there in the schedules and the commitments and the obligations. He is there with your husband and your kids and your friends. 

We build our temples
We build our walls
But they can't hold Him in
We are the temple of our God
But we can't hold Him in
{From "Mountaintop" by The City Harmonic}

God is here. 

Right here. Right there.

Wherever I am. Wherever you are.

I'm linking up with Beth's Three Word Wednesday as well as Jennifer Dukes Lee and other storytellers for #TellHisStory. I then happened upon Winsome Wednesday, so I shared there too. 
Affiliate links included in case you want to own that song because, honestly, it's been on repeat here today.

  1. Kristin, this my friend has blessed me today. "God is here." As I read your words I stopped to look around this office of mine and was reminded that yes He is here too. He is wherever I am. The reminder brings such comfort. Thank you! Thank you for linking up for Three Word Wednesday. I'm grateful for you!
    Much love, Beth

    Thanks again for gifting me the music - that song has been so good for me. I'm sure once I make it beyond that one, the others will be good too. :)

  5. I needed this reminder again this morning so stopped by for another visit. Thank you!

    I hope it helped your morning, Beth!

  7. Yes ... and Amen!

    this song ...

    "He is here, Hallelujah, He is here, Amen
    He is here, Holy Holy, I will bless His name again
    He is here, listen closely
    Hear Him calling out your name
    He is here, you can touch Him
    You will never be the same"
