The Loving Presence of God

With this article, I will take time out to thank God for all the wonderful things He has done for me in my life. This story will let you see just how wonderful GOd really is.

Psalm 139:7 "Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? Read the whole chapter. It shows what kind of God we have. He's a loving and caring God. God knows all about you and me. He knows our weaknesses and our needs. He knows all our habits; good and bad. Even knows what we are thinking. Nothing is hid from Him. No use even trying to hide from Him.

He knew I needed a friend; a special kind of friend. He sent me a penpal from miles away. One who knows God. He answered one email I sent him and sensed that I was "in the dumps". With the advice it would do me no good. He gave me the above scripture Psalm 139:7.

He prayed a special prayer for me that night and told me to listen to God tapping on my heart and to let Him in. God already visited me that morning although I didn't realize it until I got the Email.

July of 2001, I got this new computer. I am not too technical minded. I couldn't learn by reading or by programs on a floppy. I had to learn by doing and many mistakes. I still make them but I don't give up.

I worked hours on end trying to learn and especially finding my way around the internet. I didn't sleep much. I was determined to learn it in just 1 1/2 months. I prayed but not enough. I still thought I could do it myself.

I was so frustrated that I took the morning off, just relaxing. Early in the morning I was sitting on a sheltered park bench across the river from where I live. A cool refreshing rain was falling all around me. I was meditating and taking in the beauty of God's creation.

I was looking across the river at the many trees when a flash of something white went before my eyes. It was a big beautiful white seagull doing the performance of its life right in front of my eyes. It seemed that I could almost touch him.  He disappeared into a tree on the right of me on the river bank. He turned around and danced some more and disappeared into a tree to the left of me. The third time he put his all into it, flapping his wings in rapid succession as if waving good bye to me. I did not see him any more.

GOD VISITED ME IN THE FORM OF A SEA GULL!!! Awesome!!! The gentle rain was God's Spirit refreshing my spirit. "I will praise you, my Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all your marvelous works. Psalm 9:1

My friend told me God answers our prayers before we even ask Him. The sea gull was living proof.
I got God's tapping on my heart BEFORE the letter
and my friend's special prayer that night! Isn't God great?

Rejoice and praise God. Read Psalm 98.

God bless you.
