“Surely the Presence of the Lord is in this place”*
“Surely the Presence of the Lord” is a tune we chant as an opening meditation during our Gathering of Friends; a time to get centered, quiet and prepare to be “In Christ’s Presence.”
We all want to feel as though we stand in the precious Presence of God, especially when life is a bit difficult or we are distracted from our spiritual connection.
Those who walked with Christ before and after the resurrection had the privilege to bask in his presence. We can still be in His Presence.
Today, “the power of the Holy Spirit moves us into Christ’s presence. It’s not the power that comes from a light switch being turned on. It is a super natural power that comes from on-high to awaken our Spirit; becoming all that God wants us to be, and more.”**
“We have courage in God’s presence because we are sure he hears us if we ask for anything.” (1Jn. 5)
