The Presence of God

Like waves of fire

The presence of God comes in waves for me.
At times I feel Him so close and so powerfully that I have the greatest assurance that it's gonna be alright.
Other times I scream at the top of my spiritual voice, calling for the chaos to be made right and I hear a stillness. A void. And doubt creeps in and fills those places.

 

I wish I could crack the code of walking between the two.
Perhaps it is less of something to do in order to move more full into His presence,
And more of an acceptance that He will be near soon.

 

The waiting is the worst.
The next wave seems farther away that the last one.
I try to ride the next wave as long as possible. Trying to stay upright the entire time.
As I sink with the wave, I cling to the thought. 
The thoughts get me through.
It's the only way for me right now to be still and anticipate the time when I can full feel His presence again.

    God is forever present. It is us who create His absence when we think He’s not there.

    Skarafanda, I’ll say a ray for you.🙏🏽

        You’re welcome.🙂 And when times get tough, always remind yourself that God has promise never to leave or forsake us. This might be said so much and often, BUT IT IS TRUE.💃🏽
