In His Presence

In His Presence

Sometimes I crawl into the presence of God

exhausted by life

beaten by the world

overwhelmed by the weakness of my flesh

and in His presence I find

refreshment for my heart

sustenance for my soul

redirection for my mind

empowerment for the strength of my body

Sometimes I run into the presence of God

rejoicing overwhelmed with His goodness

thankful to the Giver of every good gift

glorying in His sovereignty

and in His presence I find

He abounds even more

He is worshipped

Sometimes I fall on my face in the presence of God

desperate for his mercy

in need

in need of his cleansing and restoration

and in His presence

I meet infinite grace and mercy

I see love

I encounter faithfulness

Sometimes I back into the presence of God

self-sufficient and arrogant

looking away from the light into the darkness of my shadow

pushed by His unseen hand

and in His presence

I am overshadowed by Him

the scales on my eyes are removed

I am refocused

Sometimes I walk into the presence of God

to enjoy communion and fellowship

to rejoice in Him

to surrender to Him the center of my life

and in His presence I find

acceptance and fellowship

joyful communion

No matter how I enter the presence of God–in His presence I find HIM!

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
