Diving Into God’s Presence

Rosualdo is just an ordinary person with an extraordinary God, who wants to spread God’s words and love through writing articles and poems.


You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand. (Psalms 16:11 NIV)

In the shelter of your presence you hide them
from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
from accusing tongues. (Psalms 31:20 NIV)

Diving into God’s presence is jumping into joy

Where the aching heart is free from the agony’s ploy

Where the sharp jaws of unhappiness cannot reach

And the spiked talons of sadness cannot breach

Diving into God’s presence is going into the strong refuge

Where the protection of the fearful heart is extremely huge

Where the certain perilous danger is out of sight

And the inevitable hazardous threat lose the spotlight

Diving into God’s presence is leaping into contentment

Where the heart is full of the satisfying enjoyment

Where the deadly toxin of selfish greed is withering

And the venom of unkind covetousness is fading

Diving into God's presence is falling into peace

Where the confused and troubled heart is at ease

Where the severe stressful worry loses its productive gain

And the intense uncomfortable fear forfeit its dominant reign

Diving into God's presence is plunging into love

Where the affection of the heart is like a gentle dove

Where the burning and fiery flames of hate fail their place

And the blazing and flaming fire of wrath is out of space

Diving into God's presence is dropping into fellowship

Where the desolate heart uncovers a faithful friendship

Where the empty energy of loneliness is perishing

And the vacant vitality of emptiness is drowning

Diving into God's presence is ducking into victory

Where the heart is liberated from a defeating history

Where the potent strength of downfall ceases to abide

And the courageous bravery of collapse stops to reside
