"The one thing you absolutely need is the one thing you can never lose: My Presence with you." (298)
What a promise!! What a comfort!! What a gift!! Always, forever...in His Presence!
Since God is love, and His Presence is all about His love, that means I am presently and eternally enveloped in Love!
"For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, nor angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow - not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below - indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord!" Romans 8:38-39
The key for me, is being "convinced" - being persuaded beyond doubt with absolute certainty - of God's Presence and His Love. This is the sure foundation that makes all the difference!
Enjoying His Presence & His Love...dmc
