It has been several years since I finished this website. Upon reflection, one thing strikes me in particular: my writings reflect too much the “long view”—that is, looking back and reflecting on how “Living in the Presence of God” carried me, especially during my difficult days. What it fails to fully reflect are the long hours—and sometimes several days at a time when in the midst of crisis—when I would strive to know the presence of God—but felt more than anything exhaustion and anxiety. During such times the pace is so hectic and our lives are so full—that there just is no room left for God to “come and dwell”. To be clear, the problem is mine—not God’s; but a problem nonetheless. If I were to rewrite the narrative portions, I would share the experience of fatigue, anxiety and pain of loss that were also part of my life—and the knowledge that such feelings were necessary to healing and the faith that they would pass in time.
To God be all praise and glory!!!
