- There are times that I have to shut the world out; quite often I do that so that I can be at peace and feel God. To be absent from the body yet present in the spirit is a life altering and growth experience. The stresses of life can have us wound up,seeking help,uneasy, unhappy and ready to crumble. When we feel these feelings it’s time for us to regroup, readjust and reinstate what God has placed in our hearts and that is peace. The hurt, pain and hardships of this world are only distractions to seperate us from the peace we deserve but when we are alone in his presence we reestablish the grace that surpaces all understanding. What a feeling to be silent and feel Gods presence! “Alone in the presence of you”.
