I Need the Presence of God!

I Need the Presence of God!


A life of Godliness… I must live by it!

If I'm to be filled with God’s Spirit.

I've often missed out on God's presence.

And have missed out on an awesome experience.


Many times I've lived in defeat

and much despair.

At times wondering if God was still there.


I did feel his presence for just a short time.

But soon allowed distractions to fill my mind.

 His presence soon left me…

And I said; “Jesus please stay with me!”


I felt the tug of the Holy Spirit so very near.

Speaking; "Run from your sin...for I am here!"

As I returned to Jesus-to him I held fast.

God's presence was no longer a thing of the past.


May my heart now be steadfast and true.

Help me Lord to keep my eyes on you!


May I focus my attention on God’s presence.

It’s only in him that I’ll find

joy and happiness.


God is truly my best friend,

and the shepherd of my soul.

May his presence fill me!

 Wherever I go!

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!
