In His Presence

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

When I think about being in His presence this is the verse that most often pops into my mind. It’s interesting to consider how we perceive His presence, especially while we are praying. For me, He is quietly, patiently, listening intentionally. There’s really not a picture as such, it’s more of a presence in and around me. It’s like Psalm 115 says three times in verses 9-11, God is wrapped around us as our shield.

In the beautiful song, sung by Sandi Patty, In His Presence, are these words:

I don’t think I can say it better there is comfort, peace, assurance, an ever open door, to know our Savior more, In The Presence of the Lord.

Abba, thank You for hearing my prayers, for even wanting to hear my prayers. Thank You for drawing me close to You, for wrapping around me like a shield, for totally forgiving every mess-up! Amen

Blessings to you and yours!
