“The privilege of God’s Presence!”

“The privilege of God’s Presence!”

“The privilege of God’s Presence!” by: Marie Bride


God does not want us to do life alone really resonates with me.

As an introvert I truly relate and understand the need to be alone and the feeling of being over stimulated and or feeling anxious.

I especially relate to having spent too many years of praying for God to turn me into someone other than who God was creating me to be and the specific work He wanted me to do for His kingdom here on earth.
As I spend time in His own eternal Presence, I am able to still my mind and heart, I focus on listening and hearing the Holy Spirit reveal bits of God’s will for me.

Allowing myself to do this work discovering how and where my life has come to be where I am. I am receiving God’s Blessing and affirmation. This gives me confirmation to be just who I am as I ask our loving God just exactly how I can become His master piece right where I am?

14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; that I know very well. Psalm 139:14 (NRSVACE)

**It is so important to seek my Lord’s will in everything I do.

As I keep my eyes focused on my Lord, for direction and for empowerment. My Lord is always with me He will never lead me to do something without equipping me for the task.

11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love towards those who fear him;

Psalm 103:11 (NRSVACE)


Spending time in my Lord’s Presence is a privilege my Lord desires to Bless me with. By doing so I am able to better understand my Lord’s will for my life. As my Lord shows me the path and I am able to enjoy my Lord’s Presence I begin to experience a delightful privilege, a fullness of joy, and I am able to comprehend more clearly that at my Lord’s right hand are pleasures forevermore.

The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul;
The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple. Psalm 19: 9

As my Lord shows me the path and I am able to enjoy my Lord’s Presence I begin to experience a delightful privilege, a fullness of joy, and I am more able to comprehend that at my Lord’s right hand are pleasures forevermore.

  1. I, too, am an introvert who prayed many times for God to change my personality. I’ve finally learned this is how he’s uniquely created me, and because of it I do enjoy the sweetness of his presence and the solitude involved in the life of a writer.


    • Thank You for your comment j.e. fernandez!
      It truly Blesses my heart and soul to have you share this with me.
      As I am still learning the importance of excepting who I am in the world
      and being the the person God created me to be, I have to keep reminding
      myself to just focus on who God created me to be and not who others want
      me to be.
      The sweetness of God’s Presence really is my greatest reward Alleluia!
      May God Bless You with His abundance and His sweet Presence! Amen.

  2. Hi marie! Love your heart for His presence.

    My favorite scripture that I always return to is … Hebrews 11:6 “for it is impossible to please God without faith. For He who comes to God believes that He is and that He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him”

    I think this is my all time favorite because I always wanted to please God, deep down in my heart. And one day, I realized that the best way to please Him is not by doing things. But by believing that He is God and can do all things. It changed my perspective about my performance based activities and trying to please people. Instead, I desire to have faith in Him to believe that He can do my impossible.


    • Alleluia Barbara!
      You are so right truer words were never spoken.
      Thank You for your compliment and for sharing your heart with me as well,
      May our Dear God continue to Bless us as we journey closer to His heart for us.
