Today You came in the shape of an infant
heavy on my chest.
the sweet smell of her skin,
the warm deep of her breath,
the gentle lull into invisible bliss…
the tangible connection
to eternal calm –
Sweet Spirit of God,
You are always with me.
always Divine …
in the silence and the crowd,
in the chaos and the rest …
You use the trappings of this world to deliver us
How will you Love me tomorrow?
Where will You reveal Your Heavenly Presence next?
Give me the grace to notice You here
Help me experience Your Kingdom on earth …
I want to know who You are.
In Matthew 28:20, we hear Jesus say “and behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
The Spirit of God is with us every day, whether we recognize His presence in our daily lives or not. He works through people, life experiences, nature, books and our quiet moments of prayer. He brings the gifts of peace, joy, patience, gentleness, kindness, faith, wisdom, knowledge and so much more.
Christ is always lavishing us with love in new ways, seeking to draw us closer to His Sacred Heart. The question is: will we allow ourselves to be aware of His presence in our lives?
Lord, You come to us in our joys and sorrow, showering us with gifts of love, peace and strength. Give us the grace to experience Your presence in our lives today, in whatever way You desire to manifest Yourself to us. Give us the courage to grow ever deeper in faith and awareness of Your Kingdom here on earth. In Jesus name, we pray.
When’s the last time you felt the peace of the Lord that transcends understanding? What about His Joy or Love? Have you experienced the gentleness of His guidance in Your heart? Comment below, and I’ll be delighted to keep you in my prayers.
