Now Here

Peace is always available in the Divine Presence.

Psalm 46:2

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress.

+++

The key words here are “ever-present.”

God is always in the now…at least in our human experience.

We, too, must be present if we are to experience God as our refuge, strength and help in distress.

How often are we actually present?

How often are our minds running a mile-a-minute, rehashing and rehashing one topic or another?

Most of us, I’m afraid, are attached and obsessed with those thoughts…actually believing that we are those thoughts.

Stop for a second and observe those thoughts.

Who is the observer of your thoughts?

The real you…that’s who!

Let go of those endless streams of thoughts and actually experience presence…….

……

Now…rest in the Presence of the One who always loved you…and will never stop.
