When I am by myself, quietly waiting on the Lord, many times my conditioned mind works against me. Random thoughts appear out of nowhere. They may come from my past, the future or from some speculative event that brings with it worry and fear.
In those moments, when I am distracted from the awareness of His presence, all I have to do is direct my thoughts to some of my favorite passages of Scripture and I am filled with His peace and joy. Thoughts of the Lord are always calm and reassuring.
The simple alertness to His presence, knowing He is always near, enables me to enjoy intimate fellowship with Him. I thank God for the knowledge and understanding of His Kingdom which allows me to confidently put everything that happens in its proper perspective.
Observing my Heavenly Father turn negative situations into positive outcomes makes fellowship with Him a wonderful adventure.
