I Come to Seek Your Presence

I Come to Seek Your Presence

“Come to me all you who are burdened

and I will give you rest”


Here I am, Lord.

I come to seek your presence.

I long for your healing power.

Knowing that God loves me unconditionally, I can afford to be honest about how I am.

I pause for a moment and think of the love and the grace that God showers on me: I am created in the image and likeness of God; I am God’s dwelling-place.

At any time of the day or night we can call on Jesus.

He is always waiting, listening for our call.

What a wonderful blessing.

No phone needed, no e-mails, just a whisper.

I exist in a web of relationships – links to nature, people, God. I trace out these links, giving thanks for the life that flows through them.

Some links are twisted or broken: I may feel regret, anger, disappointment. I pray for the gift of acceptance and forgiveness.

Jesus, you always welcomed little children when you walked on this earth. Teach me to have a childlike trust in you. To live in the knowledge that you will never abandon me.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
