God stands with us
“Then God said, “Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your
feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”
“The Lord stood at my side and gave me strength” 2 Timothy 4:17
I realise that I stand in a Holy Place, because wherever I stand, you stand there with me.
But there are so many things happening around me and around all of us, things that seem to pull us here and there, things that take our attention and render us unaware of your presence God.
There are events and issues that need such urgent attention, so much so that they overwhelm us, and we miss the opportunity to invite you even closer into our lives and into the things that trouble us. And it is at these times, that it's so easy for others to find our weaknesses and use them against us. And we so want to raise to the expectations that others hold of us, but we are such flawed individuals, that many times we fail.
But Dear God, we stand in a Holy Place, because you stand with us. With all our flaws, and issues, and weaknesses you stand with us. And when we miss opportunities and make mistakes, and even when we forget you, You are there standing with us, making where we stand in all our weakness, Holy.
We stand in a Holy place Dear God.
