In Your Presence

I need frequent reminders of who you are and who I am in you

So I run to your presence to be reminded

I cannot afford business to suck me in, pulling me away from you

The stakes are just too high

You said you will keep me in perfect peace

And it’s true, that’s if my thoughts are fixed on you

I know life and all its duties are loudly calling me

But I must,

I MUST prioritize being in your presence to hear your still small voice

Your presence is the sweetest thing I know

I have tasted and seen that you are good

All the time

And all the time you are good!

You equip me for the battle

You comfort me when I feel beat down and yes your joy gives me strength when I am depleted.

You keep me from falling when temptations try to pull me away

You are my daily bread, giving me exactly what I need from day to day

Simply put;

In your presence I find

All

I

WILL

EVER

NEED

It only makes sense for me to make seeking your face a priority

 

Question for reflections?

  1. Do you make excuses for why you can’t spend time with the Lord?
  2. Have you made spending time with Him a priority?
  3. Do you see a difference in your day when you slow down and give God time in prayer and reading the word?
  4. How do you think your life would be different if you were constantly seeking the face of the Lord?
