How can one be in God’s presence?

Mara says, “I go to a quiet place and just listen to the silence.”

James says, “I make a decision deep in my spirit to become connected to God. I remind myself of His special qualities and faithfulness.”

Naty says, “I listen to Gospel songs and sing along with them.”

Brandon says, “I work with the radio tuned in to a Christian station.” Norby says, “I read the Scriptures and imagine how it was in those days when God directly communicated with people.”

These are difficult, stressful times. We do need to find time and ways to feel God’s presence. Our best source of strength comes from being in His presence.

God, please make me experience Your presence every day of my life. Amen.

“You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.”
Psalm 16:11
