GOD’S PRESENCE

I need God most;
I experience him best
With others or alone;
At work or at rest.
In the valleys and canyons,
Where shadows grow long;
High on a mountain
When I’m filled with a song.
And on the plateau,
Where boredom seems to reign;
I need God’s presence
in joy and in pain.

 

I call on God’s name
Any time, day or night;
In moments of peace;
If I’ve had a great fright.
As I celebrate victory;
If I’m feeling deep loss;
When I make new plans,
And am counting the cost.
In the darkest of hours;
The happiest times.
Living in God’s presence
Makes my soul shine.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
