Looking for a recent quote from here

Apologies if this is very vague, but fairly recently I read a lovely quote, and now cannot recall it, or find it, or where to start searching.
It was a piece on faith, prayer, and God being always there for us, but not always knowing of it.
I am not explaining myself very well, but if anyone can remember who posted it, or could replicate it for me, I should be extremely grateful.
Thanks in advance.

auntieflo I have tried looking on a few threads to see if I could find anything that might be the quote you are looking for but can’t find anything. I hope someone can provide the answer for you. In the mean time, I know this is not what you meant but I am reading about the Beatitudes at the moment during Lent. Today’s reading is from Romans and might help.
For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers , neither the present nor the future, neither the world above or the world below - there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Thank you Doodle. That is a lovely piece, and I am so mad with myself for not keeping a note of the words I am looking for.
Hoping it will come to light, soon.

Hope you find the words you seek.

There is this quote on a thread about Lent:

He knows I find it hard to believe in his existence and is quite understanding about it. If at any time I change my mind, he says, he'll be there, as in fact he is anyway.

It started:
God and I have this agreement
then continues as above

sorry, I can only do one copy and paste at a time.

Jalima1108, Yes, you found it for me, thank you so much.
Sometimes I just need these little helpers along the way, and I will note it down.
But what I really needed it for, was to try and explain to a friend how I feel, and a bit of why.
Not doing a great job of explaining myself again, but I hope you get the gist.
Thanks again for the detective work, and why didn't I think of the Lent thread?

I remembered it from a recent thread and thought it was very apt for me, too!

Glad to help, Auntieflo and it prompted me to look for it again smile
