I am with you at all times


Trust Me in the depths of your being. It is there that I live a constant communion with you. When you feel flustered and frazzled on the outside, do not get upset with yourself.

Does god guide the world and my life?


Yes, he actually does. He guides us in certain paths that he alone knows. Everything that happened to you happened for a reason. Every pain, suffering, happiness, and war he has guided us.
