Live first and foremost in my presence.
Gradually you will become more aware of Me than of people and places around you.
This awareness will not detract from your relationships with others.
Instead, it will increase your ability to give love and encouragement to them.
My Peace will permeate your words and demeanor.
You will be active in the world, yet one step removed from it.
You will not be easily shaken, because my enveloping Presence buffers the blow of problems.
This is the path I have set before you.
As you follow it wholeheartedly, you experience abundant Life and Peace.
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord. They rejoice in your name all day long; they exult in your righteousness. -- Psalm 89:15-16
I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. -- Psalm 16:8
