Seek His Presence

Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
Psalm 105
Every morning, my heart needs the same thing.
Every morning, the message is the same one.
There is only one thing you need, Kathy.
Seek Me.
Seek My strength and My might.
Seek My presence.
It's one of those Kingdom paradoxes.
It might make sense that the more you know Him, 
the less you need to seek Him.
But it is ridiculously utterly the opposite.
Every morning I'm more desperate 
than the day before.
Lord, I need to know Your might in a deeper way
that I may find help in all those moments 
I get myself in trouble--
those troublesome moments when 
low thoughts barge into my mind.
Your presence is what keeps them at bay.
Because low thoughts can't exist where glory dwells.

I desperately require Your presence, Lord.
You keep me safe and sane.
All of my hope is in You.
