In The Presence of God….

There is joy in the presence of God;
Where personal problems and troubles cannot alter;
Where personal feats and assets have no share;
But it flows freely because God is there.

There is freedom in the presence of God;
Where cultural etiquettes do not matter;
Where social protocols do not count;
But everyone is free to express himself in His presence.

There is healing in the presence of God;
Where no ailment is considered impossible;
No matter its severity or duration;
Because He is the God who heals.

There is forgiveness in the presence of God;
Where everyone has the chance of being washed clean;
No matter how stained we are or how gruesome our sins are;
He is faithful and just to forgive if only we confess….

There is love in the presence of God;
Not based on merit or deeds; race or status;
Not because we give too much or pray so well;
But just because He is the God of love.

Inspired by “The presence of the Lord” by William McDowell.
