Living in the presence...

Thursday, September 24, 2015

I'm being constantly reminded lately to live in the presence of my amazing God, to walk in freedom and to grow in faith and trust. Doing these things help me to be more aware of Him, instead of the people and places around me... not in order to detract me from my relationships with others, but to increase my ability to give love and encouragement.  How awesome is that!?  I now understand that if I'm not full, if I don't love myself, take care of myself, allow God to fill the emptiness inside me, renew my mind and heart and focus on living in the present then I won't be able to help anyone else.  I have to preach this to myself all the time because I tend to get lost and overwhelmed through the day. It always feels good to just close my eyes and picture myself running to my father's arms. Ps 16:8 says, "I have set the Lord always before me because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken."
