I love practicing the Presence of the Lord. Day by day He and I walk together and share our lives together. I may pray or take pictures but just knowing He and I are together, well, that makes my life worth living.
The word exotic may not be a word someone has actually associated with God’s Presence and yet it fitting. One of Merriam-Webster’s definitions for exotic is very different or unusual. I have found God’s presence to be very different or unusual. How you ask? Let me share…
Since I was hyperactive as a child and that extended into some of my adult years, I have always had a challenging time staying still or focused. Yet I was taught how to practice God’s Presence. My first experience of Practicing His Presence came while I was in Virginia Beach, VA.
I put a chair in the center of my bedroom, sat in it and said in a matter of fact way to God, “Ok God, I’m practicing Your Presence.” Within 3-5 minutes I heard God’s voice and He said, “Wanda, I have neat things in store for your life.” I replied, “Ok, Thank You.” And got up, put my chair away and went on with my life.
Over the years God has told me that time and time again. I have found there is no place like His Presence. It is very different or unusual. I have found laughter, tears, heart to heart talks, forgiveness, acceptance and the like, all in His Presence. I have found who I am and in turn have been able to role model for others so they too can find their place in His Presence. I have found that over the years I can still myself longer and it is marvelous.
Yes, God’s Presence is Exotic!
