Being in God’s Presence

For I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
                        ♥Isaiah 41:10♥

I downloaded this Bible coloring app to my phone and I absolutely love it! Today’s picture was of Christ coming through stormy seas holding out his hand to me ((or whoever happens to be coloring the picture)).  And as I was coloring this picture, my heart grew heavier and I knew that the Holy Spirit was grabbing my attention so I became solely focused on this picture and everything else faded from me, I was tunneled into Christ and so I have decided to try to describe what being in God’s presence is like for me. Firstly, He sneaks up on me when I am not even looking because truth be told, I was only coloring to pass the time.  The more I colored, the more my heart ached with a heaviness that did not hurt.  As I have felt that feeling before, I knew where I was headed and usually, I get so emotional I cannot think because I start weeping with joy.  This time though, being there in His presence, was so calming and peaceful.  It was as if only Jesus and I were sitting on my bed just hanging out and chatting like old friends.  Even as I type this, I feel a heavy yet calm presence across my shoulders.  But I am not weeping ((hallelujah…it’s hard to type through tears)).  There is a sense of peace deep within me even as the world is “coming back to life” for me and I can hear my husband playing his video game and my television in the background and far off noises from the boys room’s.  What is it like for you? Feel free to share
