Good morning.

The presence of God brings with it a sense of God's majesty. It is also true that in His presence we are reminded of our own condition. It is important to note that His presence does not bring condemnation.

We need to understand the difference between condemnation and conviction. Condemnation brings with it feelings of guilt. Conviction comes through Holy Spirit highlighting our sinful condition. Conviction usually leads to repentance - to remove any obstruction preventing us from experiencing the fullness of God's presence.

The song popularized decades ago by "The Gaither Vocal Band" sums up what takes place when we respond to conviction.

"Shackled by a heavy burden

'Neath a load of guilt and shame

Then the hand of Jesus touched me

And now I am no longer the same

He touched me, oh, He touched me

And oh, the joy that floods my soul!

Something happened, and now I know

He touched me, and made me whole

Since I've met this blessed Savior

Since He's cleansed and made me whole

Oh, I will never cease to praise Him (to praise Him)

I'll shout it while eternity rolls

Oh He touched me, oh He touched me, He touched me

And oh, the joy that floods my soul!

Something happened and now I know

He touched me and made me whole"

Have a lovely day following His prompting.


Mike and Daphne

Good morning. Here we are at Thankful Thursday, again. As a matter of fact every day of the week should be Thankful day. It is easy for us to wonder where God is when life throws a curve ball our way.
