In His Presence

I brought a bunch of books to the beach this year. I just finished rereading The Practice Of The Presence Of God by Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection. I highly recommend this book. We are always in the presence of God. God is always aware of us, as we should be of Him. I try to do this and it gets easier and easier as time goes by. I work with Him, write with Him, read with Him, talk with Him [but sometimes I forget to be silent so that He can get a Word in edgewise.] Our lives should be a living prayer to Him. Sometimes I forget but He draws my attention back to Him. I have a long way to go, but compared to where I've been [ wallowing in the muck] the Lord has done amazing things in my life and continues to shower me with graces.

LORD, my heart will always be yours.

  1. Beautiful! I really relate to your blogs.
    If you would like to donate any of those books after you're done with them to Catholic converts in prison who are so in want of them, check my blog booksforcatholicconverts.blogspot.com

    Many blessings!
