The Life I Now Live
The life that I now live has God in it. He is living in me and with me. What a difference!! The life I lived before was disconnected from Him. The life I now live is immeasurably different and better. When the life I now live is not different and better it is because I my flesh tries to exclude Him and I fail to live knowing the reality of His presence. Some questions: Have you invited Him into your heart and life? Do you know that you need His presence? Do you have it? Do you know you have it? Are you blessed by having it? How often and how long do you forget you have it? Do you live as if you don*t have it?
