Grateful for the Presence of God

Any time of day or night
With the Lord we meet
We find ourselves eager
For moments so sweet

He is ready to receive
The burdens we lift
Our time with God
What a precious gift

The Spirit greets us
And we feel peace
We never want
The feeling to cease

As we sit with Him
We feel His love flow
In God’s presence
Is where we grow

There is so much
He willingly gives
And we can give back
This one life we live

In the throne room
We have a place to hide
We linger there because
It is in Jesus we abide

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1 NLT

Last week we talked about how spending time with God helps our gratitude walk. Today I wanted to share a post regarding Spending Quiet Time With God, written by friend Alicia over at For His Purpose. She gives tips on how to begin your day with Jesus. And she provides further insight on how this time with the Lord satisfies a longing that we have within.

  1. Loved the poem Bridget. Beautiful written Andy’s I read the words, I could relate to that feeling of being in the presence of God when we seek Him in our quiet times.

    • Thank you! On last week’s post, Michelle made a comment that I really loved. She said, “A lot of times when I’m praying after a bad day I feel like I’ve had the biggest and warmest hug!” I love that thought that God’s presence is like a big hug. And it is so true too. Blessings, my friend! 💕

  2. Nice poem, Bridget. Psalm 91:1 is a favorite of mine. I work on a US military base, and many of the soldiers call this the “Soldier’s Psalm.” The promises of God’s protection are as real as the Loving Father behind them! Blessings.

    • I had not heard it called the Soldier’s Psalm before. But I can definitely see why. Many years ago when I was in elementary school, my class was given an assignment to memorize this Psalm. And now each morning I try to remember to pray it over myself and my family. Thank you for sharing that, David! Blessings to you too 🤗
