The Power of Being Present

Picture being present with the Lord as that memorable scene from Beauty and the Beast. When Belle comes down the stairs in her beautiful yellow dress and all she and the Beast notice are each other. They lock eyes, and in every movement they make are in sync. The couple seems to have been in a world that is entirely their own. This scene is as close to what it means to be present with the Lord in Disney terms.

[…]Sitting in his presence is more fulfilling, peaceful, loving, and healing than anything the world and people will ever give you.

[…]There is power in being still. Being tranquil in the presence of God strengthens us because we are present with the rock that never moves; hence, we are unshakable. Being present with the Lord causes us to discern effectively and confidently. Being able to be present with the Lord allows us to heal and perceive life and people the way that the Lord does. To be present with Christ will enable us to add more color ( I adore art) and depth in our relationship with the one, our soul loves the most. There is life, growth, freedom, peace, and consistent peace when we a present with our Father.

Who's Life Is It Anyway?

It's a harsh truth but a necessary one. We (myself highly included) love to dictate our lives. We like to be the one driving the car, and we love to make sure everyone else around knows that. It's part ownership and part pride. But as I was listening to this podcast, I thought to myself, “if it was judgment day and God was assessing my life (the life I so claim by these ridiculous sayings) would I want to take ownership for some of the things I've done and said? Would I want to take on the consequences of all the things I have done that sinned against God?”

You know the answer, no.
