Always in His Presence

I’m finding that I need a lot of reassurances lately.

Our world seems upside down.

My life feels upside down.

So, I look for all the encouragements I can find.

As I trek through Philippians and the first two chapters of Colossians for this 21 day stretch, I came across this gem of a verse that I cling to - so I thought I’d share.

Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. Colossians 1:22

I know I’ve written about this before - but today, something else jumped out at me, that is perhaps obvious to others.

I am always in Christ’s presence.

He is always with me.

I’m never alone in this mess of a world and a life.

I’ve heard it said that Christ takes a mess and makes a message.

I like that.

I just need to remember, again and again, that He is always close to me - and I’m never anywhere He is not.

I know verse after verse confirms this fact.

I know I’ve written about some of them before.

I know He even said the words that He is with us always.

But, somehow, it became more real of me with this read through of Colossians.

I am always in His presence.

I am always  in His presence.

I am always in His presence.

I am always in His presence.

It matters not where I put the emphasis on this statement.

He is always here.

And that is always good.
