Looking ahead at this week? Worry is a place of pain — let’s come away from there. Worry is practicing the absence of God’s presence; Joy is the practice of breathing in God’s Presence…God’s very name YHVH (יהוה) means “Presence” — I AM.
“You make known to me the path of life: in Your PRESENCE there is fullness of JOY.” Ps. 16:11
The present moment is the only place joy can be received — because it is the very place where God’s presence is: I AM.
So just for today? Keep breathing deep & Practice the Present Moment: Joy is always the practice of breathing in God’s Presence…
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
