Pursuing the presence of God is the most important thing we can do. We were designed to live in His Presence – designed to have Him as our number one focus - and it is the short cut to rest.
You will fill me with joy in Your Presence,
with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.
…whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the human heart
[Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11]
So as Christmas approaches, let’s combat stress by making our preparations an opportunity for sacramental living: let’s take regular pauses, where we still the demands of the soul & seek His presence (see previous posts); and then let’s offer up each activity as an act of worship, asking Him to bless and release His power & grace through them.
This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
