In His Presence

In His Presence

I want to be in the presence of Jesus all day long.  He’s just about the only friend I have; He is the only friend I can speak to everyday.  I try to talk to him all day long.  It isn’t difficult to do when I’m home all day; which I usually am.  It’s when I leave the shelter of my house and enter the hustling, bustling world beyond.  It’s really not that difficult then, except when I interact with other people.  Then, it’s like I ignore he’s even there.  I feel bad afterward.  It’s like when you encounter someone you know, unexpectedly and you don’t introduce them to the one who is with you.  Afterwards, when you realize what you’ve done you feel badly.  It’s like that.  I believe it’s possible to maintain your presence with Jesus when in the company of others.  I’m trying and will try harder today.
