You're never far away from love.
My grandmother had a favorite saying that she always repeated when we were parting. She would give me a hug and whisper in my ear, "God goes with you and stays with me." It was comforting to know that since God was with both of us, we could never really be separated. Her words helped me feel secure and loved when I went 1,500 miles away to college. They reminded me that, in one sense, my family was as close as God.
In the Bible the Psalmist says, "Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations" (Ps. 90:1). To me, this means that God is not just my dwelling place but our dwelling place—a spiritual state of thought where, in actuality, we all dwell together forever. So even in my dormitory room, I could dwell in God, where my family also dwelt.
