Have you ever just enjoyed someone’s presence? You know, just sitting with your spouse, child, or friend. Very little, if any, talking. Nothing really happening. You’re just enjoying sharing the same space with someone special. I was reminded of that today, when I went home and was surprised to find my son there. Days may go by with me only seeing his shaggy head sticking out of the bed covers. I find myself missing him, and while we talk about things when we are together, I’ve realized I just love seeing his shaggy head upright and being in the same room for a while. In the same way, my husband and I can sit on the front porch all evening without saying much of anything, or my daughter can sit in my lap for an hour with nothing going on. It’s just about being together.
That’s how we should view spending time with God. It’s not just about prayer requests or even speaking praises. But just like our family and friends know we love them when we sit with them in silence for long periods of time, God knows it even better. Heighten your awarness to His presence and just enjoy Him in silence. Be still and know that He is God!
