One of my favorite scripture passages is Psalm 16:11—“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
I love this passage because if I ever feel that God is far away I know that God “will never leave me nor forsake me” (Heb. 13:5). Being in the awesome presence of God fulfills me and lightens my heart. Being in the Christian community of Trinity UMC has not only filled a void for me but also has been a true blessing for my husband and our children. Christ’s light and love truly shines in their eyes. I feel the presence of the Lord and am challenged to follow the path set before me. For this reason, it is my desire to know God and to make God known.
Key Word: Presence
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for always being present with me and filling my life with joy. Help me continue the path you have set before me and being in your ever-loving presence. Amen.
