Psalm 37:7 (NLT)

Be still in thePresence of the Lord,

and wait patiently for Him to act.

Psalm 37:4 (NLT)

Take delight in theLord,

and he will give you your heart’s desires.

Go to God with your heart and mind open, filled with His Presence. You do not have a thing about you He doesn't know, so you can hide nothing from Him.Thereis no other relationship like your's with Him. He is all knowing and mighty. He is above the world and all of your problems. Remember to be aware of your connection with Him and how He is blessing you. Remember to sit and enjoy His Presence and Light shiningupon you filling you up.

When the fall of manoccurredwith Adam and Eve that cause human nature to judge others and separate yourselves from them. By doing so you are not doing what God wishes. He wants us all to be one in the body of Christ. Yet we continue to cause all of these problems with other people. Many of us are full of negativity and stubborn hearts and minds because of the way we've been treated by others. Church can be one of the worst places about this too. Which is really just sad. Its sad that people from the streets see a church and see the people there dressed up and sayOh I can't go there because I am poor and I have no nice clothes.OrOh I can't go there because I am this race.We shouldn't close people out in that way. And also within the church. There are so many cliques amongst parents and youth. And trust me, people (including myself) are so tired and fed up with that. The fact thechurchesare so chunked up in that fashion turns people away ifthey don't get connected. And even if they do get connected, many see the way those groups act and that makes them leave or not want to be there any longer. And those who have "power" in a church shouldn't take it for granted. Because you are no higherthan anyone else, we are all children of God. You are no more powerful in His eyes. If He put you there it is to do His work in His Kingdom. Not to tear people toshreds or judge people or turn people away under the table.Its not how He created it.Sometimes people just go for the friends, thats not the purpose either. We are there for God. And to be ourselves. To be the person He created us to be! To fellowship in His name. We are there because it is asafe havenfor some people from the outside world, but that is not what church has become. We should be able to walk into church a feel free of all judgements to just be happy in the name of Jesus. I'm so tired of the crap that goes on in churches, and God is too. Its not about church and the religion, its about Jesusy'all! Those of us who get it have to show theothers how it works. Practice His Presence at church in thepresenceof others so they can see. Set the example for those that may be lost. The main purpose of being at church is so that we can worship as one, focusing on the Lord and His Majesty.

1 John 1:5-7 (MSG)

This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is light, pure light; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.If we claim that we experience a shared life with him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we’re obviously lying through our teeth—we’re notlivingwhat we claim. But if we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purges all our sin.

Exodus 33:14 (MSG)

Godsaid, “My presence will go with you. I’ll see the journey to the end.”

Philippians 4:8-9 (MSG)

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
