The Light of Presence

Instead, clothe yourself with 
the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 13:14
This is our daily salvation.
Clothed in His presence, 
we are clothed with light.
But if we are living in the light, 
as God is in the light, 
then we have fellowship with each other, 
and the blood of Jesus, his Son, 
cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:7
His presence keeps us 
grounded in this world.
It allows us to bring dark thoughts of 
doubt, discouragement and fear
and have them consumed.
It allows us to keep our thoughts pure-- 
full of faith, hope and love.

Lord, thank You that I can come to You
with everything that I have, 
and know that You will ask me to 
sit down with You in Your light.
You show me who You are
and how that relates to all that I bring.
Whenever I am in Your presence,
everything else disappears.
Not the things themselves,
but the power they have over me
to shape the way I respond.
You’re a fountain of cascading light,
    and you open our eyes to light.
Psalm 36:9
May I see that any thought
not illuminated by Your light
is a dangerous one.
I rest in Your presence, Lord.
I want to be by Your side
all day long.
