Have you ever, in the midst of going about your daily routines, been overwhelmed by a sudden rush of God’s presence?
It is the most magical, beautiful, heart-wrenching thing.
It comes at the most unexpected and ordinary of moments – when I am having lunch, painting my nails, or intensely concentrating on work… and suddenly, He is there.
His presence wraps my heart in webs of love and ecstasy. He suffuses my spirit, soul and body with indescribable warmth.
I know that God is omni-present; He is always there. But I am talking about the tangible, bring-me-to-my-knees, reduce-me-to-tears, life-changing presence of God. His shekhinah.
Shekhinah. How I love that word!
God is the King who sits enthroned above the circle of the earth. He is holy, holy, holy.
Yet He chose to make His dwelling among mortal men – weak, sinful, dirty.
And with the sheer power of His love, He comes to our hearts and changes us so we become – strong, holy, pure.
He is mysterious and unfathomable.
Yet He is personal. As close as our breath.
If we would ask Him to open our eyes and our hearts, we would be amazed at the brilliant rays of eternity shining through the everyday tasks.
What is something that God has spoken to your heart today? How/when does God usually shows up to you?
