I AM THERE
James Dillet Freeman
Do you need Me? I am there.
You cannot see Me, yet I am the Light you see by.
You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel Me, yet I am the Power at work in your hands
I am at work, though you do not understand My ways
I am at work, though you do not recognize My works.
I am not strange visions, I am not mysteries.
Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know Me
As I am, and then but as a feeling and a faith
Yet I am there, yet I hear, yet I answer.
When you need Me, I am there
Even when you feel most alone, I am there
Even in your fears, I am there
Even if you deny Me, I am there
I am there when you pray and when you do not pray
I am in you and you are in Me
Only in your mind can you feel separate from Me
For only in your mind are the mists of “Yours” and “Mine”
Yet only in your mind can you know Me.
Empty your heart of empty fears,
When you get yourself out of the way – I am there.
You can of yourself do nothing, but I can do all
And I am in all.
Though you may not see the good – Good is there
For I am there
I am there because I have to be,
Because I Am.
Only in Me does the world have meaning
Only out of Me does the world take form
Only because of Me does the world go forward.
I am the Law on which the movement of the stars
And growth of living cells are founded.
I am assurance, I am Peace
I am One with you
Though you fail to find Me
I do not fail you.
Though your faith in Me is unsure
My faith in you never wavers.
I know you because I love you
Beloved, I AM THERE.
