Your Presence is a Present
Mon, Dec 11, 2017 - by Adelina Kusuma

Your Presence is a Present

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age (Mat 28:20)

I have a friend who is spoiled by her parent, even she admitted, whatever she asked, her parent will provide it instantly. From the newest mobile phone and gadget to modified car, she could get it easily. She often asks people to go with her, wherever she wants to go, and often she pays all the bills. Nevertheless, only few knew about her famiy, since they never met her parent even though when they visit her house. Her parent are company leaders, hence they are so busy and have not enough time for her, she was raised by her nanny. Once she told me, her parent’s presence is even more expensive than anything she got.

Our presence for people we love is a gift, a precious one. How much is it? It is priceless! It is a simple and basic gesture in love: to be present for one another. Only then, we could know someone better, talk, listening to the stories; then we could know each other better and accept people as they are. We often forget to be present for one another, because he have no time, we think it could be exchange with material, or because we don’t really “present”

God always miss us in His presence. He Himself always present and guide us, whenever, even now. His presence is our gift from God, as well as our presence is our gift for him. When is the best time to be present with Him? In this present time. Now. Because we know God is present with us and will never leave us. His presence at this present is our present.

Today’s prayer

Lord we know You will never abandon us, You always there in every step we take. We want to be present for you and people around us. In Jesus name, Amen! Fiat Lux!! (AKW)
