I Need the Presence of God!

I Need the Presence of God!

I need the presence of God to strengthen me!

As the trials of life seem to overwhelm me!


I need his presence to bring needed refreshment!

And need his word for much nourishment!


His presence is what keeps and protects me.

Especially when sin’s stain seems to “infect” me!


His presence convicts me into what is godly living.

And helps me to be humble with a heart of thanksgiving!


His presence is what encourages me during the week.

And directs me into the direction I need to seek!


His presence calms and brings sweetness to my soul!

It quickens my mind, to the good things I should know!


His presence is what’s needed in a world turned upside down.

And helps me, when things in life fall to the ground!


His presence brings comfort from Jesus!  My best friend!

And gives assurance that he’ll be with me, to the end!


His presence is real!  It’s more than just a “good” feeling!

It brings to my mind of God’s true purpose and meaning!


I bless my lord and God!  His presence has brought stability!

And has shown me of HIS wondrous love and ability!


It’s brought conviction, and helped me to be strong!

It’s in the presence of HIS loving arms, that I belong!


May you find the power of God’s presence today!

And be blessed by the words that Jesus has to say!


May you be strengthened by his presence and power!

God can meet all of your needs!  This very hour!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
