The word is, ubiquitous:
everywhere, universal, catholic, pervasive;
the word is God.
God is where we are—
caring for us, feeding us,
holding us, healing us,
walking with us,
and being just what we need when we need it!
God is ahead of us,
not just on the path
but in thought and action as well.
We will, all of us, agree to this,
but when the time comes to trust
its reality, it’s truth,
its validity and efficaciousness,
we seem to falter
and spin out in the mud of our doubt
into the ditches of our fear.
When will we learn that even in the ditch
God is there with us—
did I say ubiquitous?
