My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free: genefirn@yahoo.com

The Presence

My Presence is
a gift to you
a glimmer of Glory 
too Radiant for
your frail existence to
fully embrace
but nevertheless
a taste of your
inheritance as
My precious
Sons and Daughters
that is meant to
wash away your
weariness and
draw you to Myself
I am
your refuge
a shelter
when the
waves of life
crash upon you and
anxiety cascades in a
cacophony of  whirlwinds
when persecution lurks
and ridicule
tempts you to
hide your love for Me
but even when
lesser constraints of
daily pursuits
overwhelming schedules
responsibilities stretched
far beyond capacity
when temptations are
nipping at your fingertips to
feed unwieldy appetites
self's circus of delights
or pride's
incessant aggrandizement
craves to be fed
because of envy's hunger
so in every circumstance-
especially your daily visitation-
decide to seek My Face
drawing upon My Power to
enter through prayer's portal in
the language of angels
into the great
silence of surrender
there to rest in
pastures of peace by
quiet streams of
tender tears
there to consume
the fruit of
My Presence
a nectar of delight
without measure

Reflection/Discussion:
-How do you come into the Lord's Presence?
-Do you experience the Presence of God in your life? How/when?
-How has the experience helped you?
-Is the Presence of God something common to believers? Why? Why not?
-Is it a "reward"? Why? Why/not?
-How has ridicule tempted you to hide your love for the Lord?
-What is the "language of angels"?
-How do we enter into a deeper life in the Spirit?
-Prepare a 5-10 min testimony of how you came to the Lord.
