In His Presence

10 Feb

With tears strolling down my cheeks, I sang along.  In the far back corner of the church…perhaps no one would notice. Standing in that space, I felt His presence.  So this is what it feels like to feel God.

Throughout the service, I was all in…like an absorbent sponge.  I did however notice a particular man finally make his way to a seat.   I had seen him in the parking lot earlier.  He pulled in just before me and seemed a bit out-of-place.  Not that anyone is out-of-place at church, but maybe that he had never been to this specific location.  Somehow, I felt a kindred spirit with him.  More tears.

Later during the service, as the invitation extended for a time of prayer at the altar, I watched this man make his way forward.  And I watched him return, wiping away tears.

Maybe he was hurting.  Maybe he was scared.  Or maybe, just as I, he felt the presence of God.
