I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs 6:3). I belong to Jesus and He belongs to me. He paid my price because He wanted me. He wanted reconciliation with me. He wanted fellowship with me. He wanted a relationship with me. And He still does.
I get so caught up in the busyness of life. God directs my steps and opens doors. I step through and sometimes the circumstances are wild and overwhelming. Sometimes my focus is completely occupied with all that’s going on around me.
I know in these times that Jesus is with me. I know He never leaves me. I know the Holy Spirit is my constant companion. He’s right there, and here, all the time, leading, speaking, fellowshipping.
God’s brought me to this place and opened these doors for this season. I want to experience it all. It may be crazy busy, but I don’t want it to stop.
What I do want is to hear Him, feel His presence, fellowship with Him. In quiet seasons, that’s my whole focus, so in busy seasons, I wonder if I’m missing something in my relationship with Him.
Because while I do hear Him, it’s in the midst of the busyness. And while I do feel His presence, I also feel the splash of the waves. And while I do fellowship with Him, there’s always so much to distract me.
Yet, He’s brought me to this place and opened these doors. And I do hear Him. It’s just different than in the quiet seasons. No relationship is static. But God is faithful and He’s always with me.
So even if I’m caught up in the busyness of life, Jesus is with me. He wants this relationship. He wants this fellowship in the busy times as much as the quiet times. Because I am His and He is mine.
