Active living isn’t just good for us; it’s God for us. A single daily dose and we become participants in our own re-creation!

Stay in the presence of God

I love the way you worship, I told him.
Because I did.
I enjoyed the freedom he had
to raise his hands
shout his praise
demonstrate his love of God Almighty.

I get embarrassed, I told him.
Because I do.
I worry about what others might think
if they saw me with raised hands
speaking out
demonstrating my love.

I love the way you worship, I told him.
But … How?
How do you dismiss
what others might think
what others might say
how they might react to your free expression?

He said:
Stay in the presence of God.

When your mind wanders
Stay in the presence of God.

When your heart questions
Stay in the presence of God.

When your spirit darkens
Stay in the presence of God.

When your strength fails
Stay in the presence of God.

Stay.
Where you are.
Where God is.
Hovering over you
A covering over you
Protecting you
flames will not burn you
waters will not overwhelm you.

Stay and worship.

A Walking Advertisement for Christ

My salvation is an issue between me and my Maker and your salvation is an issue between you and Yours.

My job, as one seeking to live a Christian life, is to be a good advertisement for the way to God demonstrated in the life of Christ.

For me, that’s an in-body experience.

If we don’t take to our knees, we will be forced to our knees. Sooner or later.
