Presence

There is only shame and guilt in the Past
There is only fear and worry in the Future
But there is Stillness, Joy and God in the Present.
Even His name is Presence personified!

Exodus 3:14 NIV God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'"


When I focus on Presence I see His protective hands around me.
Stuck on an elevator, I saw his hands holding me. A Divine, magical container. 
There I was not afraid. 
But what He has whispered to me is that I don't have to be stuck in an elevator to experience his Divine Presence.
I am held gently and always in His hands.
I am forever free to trust.

His name suggests transcendence of time.
His Grace is my freedom and is nailed to the Cross.
His Love is there for me always. 
"Just be still" He says.
Because presence is where you'll find me.

The Holy Power of I AM,
I rest in your palms.
and continue on this beautiful path you have so clearly laid out for me.
I witness You on walks.
I hear you in my dreams.
I see you most clearly when I paint....when I teach.
