Thou art there

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Psalms 139:7,8

There have been a few times in my walk with the Lord I felt like giving up and turning away from Him. Those times were the hardest times in my life where nothing made sense, or I was very angry with the Lord. I would say to myself I am just going to walk away, but in my heart I would repeat these verses and would turn right around and stay with Him. I cannot go anywhere that the Lord is not there, He is my life, my very reason for living, and I cannot imagine life without Him. I think I got to a point where He is so much a part of my life I cannot imagine a life without Him. I cannot see where the world holds an attraction for me, since I have been living in His love and security so long. No one can take His place, not a man, not my children, no one. So how can I turn away? I figure no matter what happens there is nothing that can separate us, and there is nothing that could stop Him from loving me. After all, where could I go to hide or flee from Him?
