God is the closest , the fondest, and the most reliable companion. But, man, in his blindness, ignores Him and seeks the company of others. God is present everywhere, at all times. He is the richest and most powerful guardian. Yet, you ignore Him. The Lord is here, near, loving, accessible and affectionate. but, many do not open their eyes to that great opportunity. The name will bring Him nearer to you.
