ONLY THERE

Carol Clegg-Lamptey

I donโ€™t know about you, but as for me, myself and I๐Ÿ˜…, thereโ€™s one place I love to be.
Iโ€™d choose that place over any pleasure of this world โ€” the presence of God. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

I canโ€™t even put into words, the sense of peace, I feel there.

The presence of God!
Iโ€™m so excited on Sunday mornings. The whole idea that Iโ€™m going to church, to sing, dance, to praise, worship, fellowship, to minister, to hear the Word of God and yes, see my church friends and family. Man!

Psalm 122:1 KJV –

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.

When the service is ending I feel disappointed.
The reality is in – back into the world; with all its cares and burdens, disappointments, problems, challenges!!๐Ÿ˜…
BUT GOD!

I know that I am not leaving His presence.
Itโ€™s wherever I find myself , wherever I acknowledge Him.
God is simply a prayer away.
Isnโ€™t He the Omnipresent God??

Heaven! ๐Ÿ˜
Egobe k3k3!

There will be no more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears.
Itโ€™s the music I look forward to.
Praising and worshipping God with the angels .
Oooooh boy!!!!

Psalm 16:5-11 NIV –

LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.

6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.

7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.

8 I keep my eyes always on the LORD.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,

10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful one see decay.

11 You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

To stand at the foot of the Cross.
The Cross that stands for that hope we have as believers!
– Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
– Christ, our living hope.
– That excess love , to die for me and you.
– I drop all my burdens of sin at the foot of the Cross.
– The blood!!!!!
– The blood that cleanses me from all sin.

At the cross, at the cross
Where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

May we all yearn to be in the presence of God.
Thereโ€™s really no other place like it!

God bless you!
