In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:6

God’s Presence is a sign of communion with Him. When you feel Him, you are reminded that you are not experiencing life alone. While we are trying to navigate the messes of this earth’s difficulties, His Presence supports us in detaching from worry and enables us to focus on the heavenly realm and God’s purposes for our lives.

Talking to God throughout your day about your goals and frustrations is key to connecting to the Presence of the Spirit. Make this a habit, and you will feel Him more and more.

Certainly, this habit will help you detach from the weight of this world. And, detaching and focusing on God enables you to see clearly—relieving worry. Worry only clutters the mind and blocks us from seeing God’s solutions to problems.

Remember Christ’s instructions:

For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, . . . . Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? … And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?… But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:25, 27, 33

Oh Lord, help us to focus on You and detach from our worries. Help us see the clear path before us, no matter how much clutter seems to be distracting us. Make the path straight. Guide us in our goals, and aid us in following Your lead. Amen
