Guest Blogger ~ Emily Wickham, @emilywickhamPH
with Marcie Bridges, @Marcie_Bridges

God leads us to people in such extraordinary ways sometimes. Emily and I met online through my brother's family and though we have not actually met in person (which is kinda funny since we live so close to each other), we are looking forward to meeting each other here in a few short weeks at an up-coming writer's conference.  To say I'm thrilled to have Emily as my guest this week is an understatement of great proportion. 


“And we know that the Son of God has come, 
and has given us understanding, 
in order that we might know Him who is true, 
and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. 
This is the true God and eternal life.” 
1 John 5:20, NASB  

Dear Friends,

Sometimes we plan our words and actions, but the Holy Spirit re-directs. I love when He does that, which perfectly applies to my guest post today. I intended to share a different message, but the Spirit pointed me to this love poem about my Jesus.

Constantly I’m reminded of God’s faithfulness and everlasting love. I pray these words of mine will resonate with you and increase our passion for Christ. He is worthy.

In Christ’s Love,

He sits with me, listens—
Reminds me He is near.
In my heart, my life.
Never leaving or abandoning
He remains.

Jesus, my Beloved
The One who lifts my head.
Strong, steadfast, secure.
Never ignoring or forgetting
I am His.

My Savior, faithful Friend
He ever strengthens me.
Life exists in Christ.
Never failing or disappointing
He’s alive.

Do you know this Jesus?
His tender touch, His care?
No one else compares.
Never refusing or rejecting
He redeems.
