Sacred Presence

God is not in some distant place…but intimately close.

(Listen to my song “Make Your Way” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


John 16:32

“Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me.”


We all have times when we feel a certain closeness to the Divine.

You might call the Divine God or Jesus or Spirit or Source or Creator or the Transcendent. You might call it Allah.

But then we must go out into the world into the desert places where we encounter those who don’t have the beliefs that we do.

We are challenged to show unconditional love when we are rejected.

Jesus said that he and the Father (God) are one.

And this God is also always with us…even when it doesn’t feel like it.

Spend some quiet time allowing this truth to rise in your soul.
